Iowa State’s 6-foot-9 senior center George Conditt IV has announced on Monday that he will forego his extra year of eligibility due to COVID-19 and pursue a career playing basketball professionally.
In four seasons with the Cyclones, Conditt played in 116 games starting 35 of them, and averaged 4.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game.
The former three-star recruit from Chicago announced his decision on Monday afternoon in a message to Cyclone Nation.
“I’ve been through some of the highest parts of this program to some of the lowest parts of this program,” Conditt writes. “Throughout all of it Cyclone Nation has been there for me so, thank you! It has always been my dream to become a pro and with that being said I will forego my remaining eligibility.”
Conditt recorded 12 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks in the NCAA Tournament this season en route to the Sweet 16. Conditt makes the second Cyclone to announce his departure on Monday, as All-Big 12 selection Izaiah Brockington announced he is declaring for the NBA Draft as well.
The 2022 NBA Draft is scheduled for June 23 and has yet to announce a start time at this point.
