Guard Bryce Dejean-Jones, who led UNLV in scoring (13.6) and assists (3.0) last season but also had his share of locker room issues, announced on Sunday on Twitter that he is transferring to Iowa State.
It will be the third college for the 6-foot-5 Dejean-Jones, who began his career at USC before transferring to UNLV after the 2010-11 season. Because he is expected to graduate in May, Dejean-Jones will be immediately eligible to play his senior year for the Cyclones.
Dejean-Jones was the preseason co-Mountain West Newcomer of the Year in 2012-13 when he averaged 10.3 points, including a team-high 15 points in a second round NCAA Tournament loss to Cal in San Jose. He was also considering Arizona State.
Had a great weekend in Ames my first time there but won't be the last I've decided I wanna be a Cyclone!
