One of Iowa State’s top 2016 targets will make his second visit to the school next week. Kassoum Yakwe, a 2016 forward, will make an official visit starting Sunday at ISU, a source tells the Ames Tribune. A 6-foot-7 prospect out of Our Savior New American in New York, Yakwe visited the Cyclones in the fall of 2013, along with teammate and top-10 2015 prospect Cheick Diallo, who is also considering ISU.
Tyus Battle is down to seven schools. The 6-foot-6, five-star combo guard out of Gladstone (N.J.)

Surprisingly, Kentucky was cut from the list, along with Florida, Villanova and Virginia. “We had some core values and we have some particulars on how they wanted to play him,” Gary Battle, the player’s father, told SNY.tv by phone on Monday.
