Clayton Custer, the former Blue Valley Northwest basketball standout, will transfer from Iowa State, the university announced on Tuesday.
Custer, The Star’s All-Metro boys’ basketball player of the year in 2014, averaged 1.1 points in 5.8 minutes coming off the bench for the Cyclones. He didn’t play in the final 10 games this season.
His best game came in a victory over Drake. Custer scored six points on a pair of three-pointers in 14 minutes, all season highs.
“I truly enjoyed my time at Iowa State,” Custer said in a release issued by Iowa State. “I was able to build relationships with people I’ll be close to the rest of my life and I will always cherish the moments I had here. Thank you to the Iowa State coaches, my teammates and Cyclone nation for the special opportunity.”
In the same release, Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg suggested the departure was mutual.
“I appreciate the work and effort Clayton gave to our program this season,” Hoiberg said. “He has been a great teammate. I’ve enjoyed coaching Clayton and wish him the best in the future. I will do anything I can to assist him as he looks for a new school.”
