The Iowa basketball team has three recruits lined up for next season and could still sign one more player. High school players Brady Ellingson and Dominique Uhl signed letters of intent in November and junior college point guard Trey Dickerson can sign on April 16.
A look at how the three players fared this season:
Brady Ellingson, 6-4, Hamilton, Wis. (Sussex HS)
The sharpshooting guard averaged 25.9 points per game and made 62 3-point field goals despite missing several games in January because of mononucleosis. He played some of his best basketball at the end of the season, scoring 94 points in three playoff games.
In a 49-46 upset victory over Kettle Moraine in the regional championship game, Ellingson sank a shot from about 22 feet out at the buzzer to win the game. He accounted for 38 of Sussex's 49 points in the game. Sussex was eliminated in the following game by two-time defending state champion Germantown and finished 17-8. It was 38-11 over the past two seasons.
Ellingson scored a school-record 1,763 points in his four-year varsity career, was named second-team all-state (including all classes) and was a unanimous pick on the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Division I all-state team.
Dominique Uhl, 6-7, Point Pleasant Beach, N.J.
Uhl helped Point Pleasant Beach (enrollment 295) to a 29-2 record although the Garnet Gulls fell short of repeating as the NJSIAA Group 1 state champions. They lost to Pittman 47-36 in the state semifinals, finishing with a two-year record of 57-6.
Uhl, who grew up in Germany before moving to New Jersey, averaged about 11 points per game and was the second leading scorer on the team behind guard Matt Farrell, who is committed to Notre Dame. Uhl was named first team all-state in Group 1 and was named to the All-Ocean County team by the Newark Star-Ledger. Farrell was named the county's player of the year.
Uhl is scheduled to play in the Jordan Brand Classic regional all-star game April 18 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Trey Dickerson, 6-0, Williston State Junior College
After leaving Murray State at the end of the summer, Dickerson enrolled at Williston and became the Tetons' top offensive weapon. He averaged 19.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game, shooting 47.5 percent from the field, 34.7 percent from 3-point range and 67.9 percent from the foul line.
Williston State went 25-6 and Dickerson was named the Mon-Dak Conference's most valuable player. He is rated the No. 1 junior college point guard prospect in the country and the 10th best prospect overall by 24/7 Hoops.
Dickerson grew up in New York City, but moved to Los Angeles during high school, then played one season at God's Academy in Dallas before signing with Murray State. He spent the summer at Murray, but at the start of the school year.
