Iowa Basketball secured a verbal commitment Saturday from a recruit with a familiar last name. Class of 2023 Waukee (IA) Northwest High Wing Price Sandfort, younger brother of Hawkeye sophomore Peyton Sandfort, announced his pledge to hockey.
Price Sandfort (6-7, 190) also reported on scholarship offers from Clemson, Drake, Nebraska, Seton Hall, and Washington State. They officially visited Iowa last weekend after official stops in Nebraska and Drake in July.
Sandfort Moline joined High and Mid-Pro Academy teammates Owen Freeman and Brock Harding as a member of the Hawkeyes’ Class 23. They’re hoping to add New England four-star big man JP Estrella, who accompanied Sandfort to Iowa last weekend, to the group.
Price Sandfort averaged 26.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.9 blocks, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals last season as a junior. He shot 52.6 percent from the floor, with 40.5 on threes and 89.2 on the foul line.
