After losing his senior point guard to dismissal, Ken Bone when right back onto the recruiting trail and nabbed his point guard of the future.

Ikenna Iroegbu, who is finishing his prep career at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy, has committed to the Cougars over offers from Memphis and Virginia Tech.

Iroegbu took to Twitter to announce the news.

“Just committed to the zzu!! #WSU...” Iroegbu tweeted.

Evan Daniels of and Jeff Borzello of also had news of the commitment.

This commitment comes as some consolation for Bone, who is sorely going to miss departed guard Reggie Moore, the team’s returning leader in assists and a would-be senior. Unfortunately, Iroegbu doesn’t hit campus until next summer, so with or without Moore, he’ll be waiting for his new floor general.

Iroegbu is the first commitment of the 2013 class for Washington State.
