Class of 2017 3-star power forward KeyShawn Feazell decided on Wednesday to offer up a pledge to play for Steve Prohm and the Iowa State Cyclones. In the process, he spurned hometown favorites Mississippi State.
Feazell took to Twitter to announce his decision.
“I want to start off by thanking God for blessing me with the talent and opportunity to be able to play the game that I love,” he said on the social media website. “With that being said, I also want to thank all family and friends for the support that they have all gave me, and to all the colleges who gave me a chance to be a part of their program. After praying to God to lead me in the right path and talking with my dad, I’ve decided to further my education and basketball career under coach Prohm at Iowa State University.”

Feazell, a 6’9”, 225-pound power forward from Monticello, Mississippi (Lawrence County High School) is rated as a 3-star recruit according to 247Sports. The site ranks him as the No. 161 overall prospect in the 2017 class and the 35th-best power forward in the country. 247Sports also regards Feazell as the second-best basketball player in the state of Mississippi.
He chose the Cyclones while also holding offers from Alabama, Alcorn State, Baylor, Ole Miss and Pittsburgh. Feazell was also receiving interest from Georgia, Kansas State, Maryland, Middle Tennessee State, South Alabama, Texas and UAB.
Prohm is starting to connect on the recruiting trail, as this is his second major commitment for the 2017 class. Feazell will join 4-star small forward Terrence Lewis in Prohm’s 2017 recruiting class.
