Mandatory Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Jalen Coleman-Lands’ final year of collegiate eligibility will be played somewhere besides Iowa State. The senior guard from Indianapolis announced Friday night he’s entering the transfer portal after one season in Ames.
Rasir Bolton is transferring from Iowa State after two seasons with the program. The Cyclones’ leading scorer last season will be seeking a new home as a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining. This leaves T.J. Otzelberger and his staff four open scholarships for the spring recruiting cycle.
As T.J. Otzelberger’s staff takes shape, it’s worth now turning attention to the state of the roster the new Iowa State men’s basketball coach will be tasked with guiding. Change is inevitable after not only a coaching switch, but after the 2-22 season that included going 0-19 against Big 12 competition and ended Steve Prohm’s tenure with the Cyclones. That’s already begun with three Cyclones entering the transfer portal and one recruit de-committing.
