Cyclones lose 2 more to transfer

Caleb Grill

AMES — The roster attrition for Cyclones coach Steve Prohm continues in this week with two roster players announcing their intent to transfer from Iowa State men’s basketball.

On Wednesday morning, freshman guard Caleb Grill said he was transferring from the program after one year with the Cyclones. The Kansas native committed to South Dakota State originally before coach T.J. Otzelberger left for UNLV, and then the self-described lifelong fan of the Cyclones chose Iowa State.

Grill’s minutes fluctuated during the year but after an injury to Tyrese Haliburton, Grill had a chance to play consistently and showed flashes of promise.

Grill averaged 1.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game for Iowa State.

Thursday afternoon, reports surfaced that junior guard Terrence Lewis was transferring as well. Lewis has been a bench player for three years with the Cyclones and never really got a chance to break out. At times in the 2019-20 season, Lewis would make a big impact for the Cyclones, only to see himself not play much in the following games. Lewis averaged 13 minutes per game during the season, scoring six points a game on 53.3 shooting from the floor and 34.2 percent shooting from 3-point range.

Sophomore forward Zion Griffin announced his intentions to transfer Monday.
