Huff to visit, Atwood to announce for men’s hoops

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Former Nevada power forward Cole Huff will visit Iowa on May 2, according to Huff’s AAU coach on Twitter, and with the recent departure of Kyle Meyer, Iowa could really use another power forward. As of now, Jarrod Uthoff, Aaron White, and Okey Ukah are the only forwards on the Iowa roster.

Huff averaged more than 12 points and 5 rebounds while on the Wolfpack, but he will have to sit out the 2014-15 season. Huff would be junior when he can play again.

Huff’s announcement to visit Iowa comes one day before much sought-after junior-college power forward Willie Atwood plans to declare which Division-I school he will play for next season.

Atwood has stated that Iowa is one of his front-runners, and is being persuaded heavily by another Iowa juco-signee, Trey Dickerson, to commit to the Hawkeyes.

Iowa would still have a problem at forward next season even if Huff were to sign, so Atwood would be a hot recruit for Fran McCaffery’s program.
