Mother: Staten still a Cyclone commit

Wesley Staten remains an Iowa State commitment – for now – the Sioux City point guard’s mother, Keesha Parker, said Thursday afternoon.

Parker said a Rivals.com report posted earlier Thursday that Staten has gone back on his November 2008 commitment to play at ISU was pre-mature.

“I’m disappointed in Wesley for doing this,” she said when reached at home. “It has not been officially done. It has been discussed. Wesley is still verbally committed to Iowa State.”

Staten, a 2012 recruit from Sioux City West H.S., told Rivals he was still considering ISU, but had de-committed.

“I called the coaches a couple days ago and told them I wanted to open it up and see some other schools,” said Staten, who averaged 18.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season as a freshman.

Parker said the family spoke with Cyclone assistant coach Daniyal Robinson earlier this week , but nothing was decided.

It was Staten’s AAU coach for the Iowa Barnstormers who told Rivals reporter Jerry Meyer that Staten was de-committing, Parker said.

Staten told Rivals that Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, USC, Kansas State, Arkansas and LSU have expressed interest in the 6-foot, 155-pound guard.

ISU’s is his only offer at this point, Parker said.

“He doesn’t really know which way to go,” she said. “There’s so many people tugging at him from out of our home. He has to remember who has his best interests at heart… I’d love to see him at Iowa State.”
