Last week, the Kansas State basketball program got better with a commitment from Hirschi (TX) guard Marcus Foster. As Kansas State begins a new week, the Wildcats also get another commitment. Assistant coach Alvin Brooks III helped bring in another talented prospect from the state of Texas.

Westfield (TX) wing committed to Kansas State last night after announcing his decision on Twitter. The 6-6 wing narrowed his list down to two schools with KSU and SMU involved. A week following his official visit to Kansas State, he just couldn’t prolong his recruitment any longer and decided to commit.

“I’ve been feeling it in my heart for awhile now,” Iwundu told the Kansas City Star. “So I decided to make it official.”

Iwundu is a late bloomer and really made a name for himself on the AAU circuit playing with the Harrison twins (Aaron and Andrew), two of the nations most elite guards. He had plenty of options with offers from Colorado, Drake, Houston, Lehigh, Richmond and Texas Tech. He’s been described as a smooth scoring wing and once he adds weight, Iwundu could prove to be a steal for the Wildcats. Kansas State now has a three-man class with their latest additions of Foster and Iwundu joining Indiana small forward Alex Etherington. With just one scholarship left, the staff could be looking at bigs in the class of 2013.
