For the third year in a row, Ken Bone and Washington State have landed a member of the Rivals150. For the second year in a row, he's a four-star prospect.
Fresh off of his visit to Pullman over the weekend, four-star point guard Ikenna Iroegbu announced Monday that he's committed to the Cougars.
While the move was expected -- we wrote on Friday in our weekend preview that it was likely to go down very soon -- it doesn't lessen the importance of landing a kid who could be an immediate impact player.
A native of California who is finishing his high school career at Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy, Iroegbu currently ranks No. 100 nationally and has been on the rise.
At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Iroegbu blends good size with strength and near elite level athleticism. His first step is tremendous, he has great lateral quickness and while he can play at a very fast pace, what makes him so dangerous is that he's got complete control of his speed.
"I believe that he has all the physical tools to be an elite playmaker at the high major level," Iroegbu's summer coach Dinos Trigonis of Belmont Shore told Rivals.com. "His improved leadership and decision making skills bodes well for his potential to be an impact player as a freshman."
Formerly a head down, hair on fire driver of the basketball, Iroegbu has refined his game considerably since headed to Oak Hill as a junior. He has become a pretty good pull-up jump shooter, plays with better control and has developed into one of the best setup guys in the senior class.
Iroegbu is the first 2013 commitment from Washington State. In addition to what he can do on the offensive side of the ball, he has the tools to develop into one of the best defensive point guards in the Pac 12.
