AMES, Iowa - The Iowa State men's basketball team picked up an experienced and talented wing to its arsenal with the addition of Utah transfer Will Clyburn, a 6-7, 200-pound guard who averaged 17.1 points and 7.8 rebounds as a junior for the Utes last season. Clyburn signed a financial aid agreement to attend Iowa State University next year.

A native of Detroit, Mich., Clyburn will sit out next season and have one year of eligibility for the Cyclones in 2012-13.

"Will is player who has the proven ability to score, rebound and defend at the highest level," Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg said. "We felt Will was one of the best available transfers this year and we are thrilled he will be a Cyclone. On top of his basketball ability, Will is a great person who possesses a contagious work ethic."

Clyburn was sensational in his only season at Utah (2010-11) after transferring from Marshalltown Community College. Clyburn was named All-Mountain West Second-Team and earned NABC First-Team All-District 17 honors while leading the Utes in scoring (17.1), rebounding (7.8), double-doubles (8), 3-pointers (62), 3-point percentage (40.3 percent) and steals (34).

Clyburn, who ranked third in the Mountain West in both scoring and rebounding in 2011, scored in double figures in 26 of 30 games and tallied 20 or more points 11 times, including a career-high 27 points vs. Weber State.

Prior to his season at Utah, Clyburn was a standout at MCC for two seasons. He led the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) in scoring (19.6) and rebounding (8.7) while earning first-team All-ICCAC accolades and first-team All-Region XI honors in 2010. He scored 54 points vs. Southeastern C.C. (Burlington) in his sophomore campaign.
