With four solid players already committed to Iowa in the class of 2012, head coach Fran McCaffery is moving the program in the right direction. On Sunday the stellar class grew to five with the commitment of Lansing, MI (Sexton) point guard Anthony Clemmons.
The 6’1″ Clemmons gave his pledge to the Hawkeyes after making an official campus visit over the weekend. He was also considering Detroit, Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. He had committed briefly to EMU earlier this summer but reopened his recruitment.
Clemmons has built a friendship with current Hawkeye and fellow Michigan-native Devyn Marble, who served as his player host for the visit. He told Rivals.com that he hopes to make it back to Iowa City the weekend of October 15th to join fellow Hawkeye commits Adam Woodbury (ranked #42 overall) and Mike Gesell (#96) on their official visits.
As a junior at Sexton, Clemmons averaged 12 point, 4 rebounds and 4 assists per game. He plays alongside Michigan State commit Denzel Valentine (#80) and mid-major prospect Bryn Forbes.
