Iowa is in need of athleticism, and the Hawkeyes got a dose of it in the commitment of Vincennes (Ind.) Community College power forward Devon Archie.
The 6-foot-9, 215-pound Archie chose Iowa over interest from Cleveland State and South Carolina.
"The coaches came down yesterday and Devon was really impressed," said Vincennes assistant Brian Davis. "They are looking to get more athletic and bring a guy in who can rebound and block shots.
"Devon is built like Mike Davis. He doesn't shoot the ball like him, but he is still improving and has only played ball for four years."
Archie averaged seven points and six rebounds per game for Vincennes.
