Iowa State lands Deonte Burton

Iowa State has struck again in the transfer market.

The Cyclones have landed a commitment from Marquette transfer Deonte Burton, sources told ESPN. Burton chose Iowa State over UCLA.

Burton, a 6-foot-4 forward, was averaging 6.1 points and 1.4 rebounds through nine games before deciding to leave school earlier this month. Because Iowa State has no scholarships this season, Burton will have to pay his own way for the spring semester.

He will become eligible after the first semester next season and will have one and a half years remaining. However, he will apply for a waiver to get this year of eligibility back due to his mother passing away back in October.

Fred Hoiberg has brought in a number of transfers since taking over at Iowa State. UNLV transfer Bryce Dejean-Jones is second on the team in scoring, while Abdel Nader (Northern Illinois) is also contributing.

Another Marquette transfer, Jameel McKay, made his debut Saturday for the Cyclones. Hallice Cooke (Oregon State) is sitting out this season.
