July 28th, 2011 by Jim Field

Iowa State women’s basketball recruit Julie Vanloo is working toward attending a college in Belgium for the 2011-12 academic year with the hopes of attending Iowa State in the near future.

“We have been informed by the NCAA that Julie has not been cleared to play basketball at Iowa State during the 2011-12 academic year,” Iowa State head coach Bill Fennelly said. “Throughout the process, Julie has maintained her passion about becoming a Cyclone. She is looking into the possibility of attending a college in Belgium which would allow her to attend and play at Iowa State in the near future.”

Per NCAA rules, Vanloo, a native of Oostende, Belgium, would be eligible to attend Iowa State in the future provided she meets academic qualifications for international transfer students. Vanloo would be a freshman student-athlete in 2012-13.
