Hawkeye Basketball | Iowa Recruiting Prospects for 2012

There is a pretty nice list put together on's Hawkeye Insider by a message board member named herbyhawk. Because Scout requires a log-in to read the post I thought I would use what herby started and expand the list a little bit. If coach McCaffery banks the scholarship from 2011 he will end up with five open spots to fill. One has already been taken by 6'10" forward Kyle Meyer. Here is a list and info about the hoops prospects Iowa has offered:

    2. Abdel Nader committed to Northern Illinois the other day.
