Rarely do commitments made prior to high school hold up, and it looks like this might be the case with 2012 prospect Wesley Staten, who is no longer committed to Iowa State.
"I've decommitted," Staten told Rivals.com. "I called the coaches a couple days ago and told them I wanted to open it up and see some other schools."
Staten is still considering Iowa State, but the Cyclones will have plenty of competition. Staten listed Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Kansas State, USC, Arkansas and LSU as schools that have already expressed interest in him.
A 6-foot, 155-pound point guard, Staten is coming off a tremendous freshman season at Sioux City (Iowa) West High School. He averaged 18.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists while his team made it to the finals of the sub-state. Staten was named to the second team All-State team in Class 4A.
This past summer, Staten participated in the prestigious Nike Hoop Jamboree for the top underclassmen in the country.
This summer he plans to run with the Iowa Barnstormers.
