AMES, Iowa (AP) — Standout junior college forward Jameel McKay has committed to Iowa State. McKay, a 6-foot-8 forward, spent two seasons at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa. He was a two-time, first-team NJCAA All-American who averaged 16.8 points last season.

McKay committed to Marquette in his native Milwaukee, but he quit the team before playing in a game this season. McKay signed his admission acceptance letter Monday at Iowa State. He’ll be eligible to play 1½ years for the Cyclones starting on Dec. 20, 2014.
