Curtis Stinson, a 6-2 combo guard from The Winchendon School in Massachusetts, committed to Iowa State yesterday. "Curtis was very impressed that coach Larry Eustachy drove 22 hours to sit down with him and talk about the Iowa State program," said The Winchendon School's head coach Mike Byrnes. "Curtis committed to Iowa State after his talk with coach Eustachy. He is very excited about playing at Iowa State."
Stinson initially thought he would wait on making a decision until the Spring. "Curtis felt Iowa State was a great fit and a great opportunity," Byrnes said. "Curtis can play in the Big 12. He had a great summer and proved this summer he could play at a high level."
Curtis has improved and worked very hard on his jumper. He had an outstanding summer.
Byrnes previously told us that Northeastern, Drexel and Iowa State had offered Curtis a scholarship. East Carolina, South Florida, Rhode Island, and George Washington also showed some earlier interest.
Stinson, a rock-solid 6-2, 205-pounds, was named MVP of the Las Vegas Big Time Tournament during The New York Ravens' title run. Stinson also boosted his stock considerably with solid performances at the ABCD camp and the Three Stripes tournament.
