Iowa signs Ellingson, Uhl


November 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has signed prep guard Brady Ellingson and forward Dominique Uhl to national letters of intent. Ellingson, a 6-foot-4 guard from Sussex, Wis., averaged 21.3 points a game as a junior last season. He shot 48 percent from 3-point range and was named first-team All-State.

Uhl, a 6-foot-9 forward from Point Pleasant Beach High in N.J., averaged 10 points and 10 rebounds a game last year. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says Ellingson is a “cerebral” player and that Uhl has tremendous ball-handling skills for a player his size.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Drake coach Ray Giacoletti announced his first recruiting class Wednesday, a five-player group that includes a pair of Iowans.  Iowa Falls Alden High forward Casey Schlatter and center Kory Kuenstling of Dunkerton headline the class of players who have signed with the Bulldogs.

Schlatter averaged 25.7 points and 10.1 rebounds per game as a junior last season and was a first-team All-State pick. The 6-foot-11 Kuenstling scored nearly 16 points a game last year.

Giacoletti says each of his new players comes from a successful high school or AAU program and excels in the classroom.

November 13th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will play Sunday night against Denver after his arrest for speeding and possession of marijuana over the weekend.  The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Wednesday because he was not authorized to discuss the situation. Chiefs coach Andy Reid is expected to address Bowe’s status for the key AFC West showdown after the team’s morning walk-through.

Bowe was pulled over for speeding Sunday in the Kansas City suburb of Riverside. Police said an officer smelled “a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle.” He was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance, police said.  Bowe posted $750 bond and faces a Dec. 18 court appearance.
