Iowa State just lost one former Penn State basketball player who transferred, but the Cyclones are getting another one from the transfer portal.
Izaiah Brockington announced on Twitter this evening that he is transferring to Iowa State. Last week, former PSU guard Rasir Bolton, who played two seasons at Iowa State, transferred to Gonzaga.

Oddly enough, this actually is the third Penn State basketball player to transfer to Iowa State in the past 11 years. To go along with Brockington and Bolton, shooting guard Chris Babb transferred to the Cyclones in 2010. He averaged 9.1 points as a senior in 2012-13 and actually made it to the NBA for 14 games with the Celtics in 2013-14.
Brockington began his college career at St. Bonaventure, then transferred to Penn State and played two seasons for the Lions. He was the team’s second-leading scorer last season, averaging 12.6 points per game.
Brockington was one of six key PSU players to enter the transfer portal immediately after the season. He announced he was staying at Penn State, then entered the portal for a second time.
Iowa State finished 2-22 last season and 0-18 in the Big 12. Coach Steve Prohm was fired and replaced by T.J. Otzelberger from UNLV.
