Iowa and head coach Fran McCaffery landed an in-state commitment late this week as 6-foot-7 forward Cordell Pemsl committed to the Hawkeyes.

The lefty forward from Walhert High School in Dubuque, Iowa confirmed his pledge to Iowa via Twitter.

Iowa offered Pemsl a scholarship just last week and the forward picked the Hawkeyes over offers from Creighton and Northern Iowa. For McCaffery and Iowa to keep talented Iowa players home is a big step in maintaining the program’s recent success.
