The Iowa women’s basketball team officially signed four recruits, Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder announced Wednesday. Among the four signings were Christina Buttenham, Whitney Jennings, Chase Coley, and Carly Mohns.

Iowa’s class is ranked 28th nationally, according to Blue Star Basketball.

“We are very happy with this recruiting class,” Bluder said in a press release. “We feel we addressed our needs, with not only talented players, but with quality people who will blend right into our family.”

Buttenham is a 6-foot forward who attended St. Mary Catholic Secondary School in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She was cocaptain and led her team to a first-place finish in the City Catholic High School League. She was also the youngest member of the Canadian National U-17 women’s basketball team.

Coley is a 6-foot-3 forward from Washburn High School in Minneapolis. She was a HoopGurlz Top 100 recruit while averaging 20 points, 17.3 rebounds, and 8.8 blocks per game last season.

Jennings is a 5-foot-5 guard from Logansport High School in Logansport, Ind. She is the all-time leading scorer for the school while leading her team to a 62-11 record over the past three seasons.

Mohns is a 6-1 forward from Brodhead High School in Brodhead, Wis. She is a three-time first team all-conference and first team Beloit Daily News honoree. She led her team to three-straight conference titles.

Iowa men’s basketball head coach Fran McCaffery announced Wednesday that the team signed two recruits. Brady Ellingson and Dominique Uhl will attend Iowa in the fall of 2014.

As a junior at Hamilton High in Sussex, Wis., Ellingson averaged 21.3 points per game and 3.5 rebounds per contest. During Uhl’s junior year at Point Pleasant Beach High in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., he averaged a double-double and was a first team all-conference and a Reebok All-American.
