Shooting guard Brady Ellingson became the first recruit of the 2014 Hawkeye recruiting class, according to a tweet the Sussex, Wis., native posted Tuesday night.

“Blessed to say that I'm officially committed to the University of Iowa. #GoHawkeyes,” the 6-3 guard wrote on Twitter.

Ellingson was the 10th-best recruit from the state of Wisconsin, according to ESPN’s recruiting database. The three-star guard is known to be a pure shooter and could be a nice addition to the Hawkeyes’ already deep and talented backcourt.

It was reported that Ellingson had offers from several well-known Division I programs. But after visiting Iowa City this past weekend, Ellingson decided Iowa was the best place for him.
