Tavon Sledge transferring to Iona

Former Iowa State guard Tavon Sledge is transferring to Iona College, another nice pickup for head coach Tim Cluess and his staff.

Sledge, a 5-foot-9, 175-pound guard, was a high school star on Long Island, but appeared in just eight games for the Cyclones as a freshman and elected to transfer after the season.

He should see much more playing time with the Gaels, although he is expected to sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules.
