The Iowa Hawkeyes continue to stock their coffers with versatile athletes with multiple skill sets.
Three-star power forward Dominique Uhl announced Friday that he has verbally committed to Iowa, according to 247Sports.com.
Uhl chose the Hawkeyes over Temple and Boston College. The 6-foot-8, 190-pound forward from Point Pleasant Beach is considered one of the top players in New Jersey.
“They see me as a three, maybe a four to play against smaller players,” Uhl told Zagsblog.com. “They like my skill set, that I can handle the ball and shoot, too.”
Uhl is a native of Germany and came to the United States last summer. He can play on the wing and likely play behind Aaron White and Jarrod Utoff. His jump shot and ability to handle the basketball are still a work in progress, according to many experts.
The Hawkeyes lose forwards Zach McCabe and Melsahn Basabe after this year. Uhl likely compete for playing time with Kyle Meyer next season.
Uhl joins Wisconsin shooter Brady Ellingson as members of Iowa’s 2014 class.
