IOWA MAKES THE FINAL TWO. Cole Huff narrowed his list to Creighton and Iowa last week. The former Nevada forward used his Twitter account to announce he will attend Creighton next fall. He averaged 12.4 points and 5.4 rebounds as a sophomore at Nevada last year. Huff will have to sit a year due to transfer rules.
Prior to committing, Huff was considered the 6th best transfer available. He made his choice after a weekend visit to Iowa City with his family. Because would have to sit a year this isn't considered a huge loss for Fran McCaffery and staff. Iowa will still have five scholarships to offer for the 2015 class if they don't land another prospect this summer. Fran has one of the five 2015 scholarships spoken for with small forward Brandon Hutton's verbal commitment.
