Clayton Custer reopens recruiting, looking to ‘show what I can do’

“I know I would have been successful here at some point,” former BV Northwest standout Clayton Custer (left) said about Iowa State. “It was just hard knowing exactly when that was going to be. I want to be able to show what I can do.”
“I know I would have been successful here at some point,” former BV Northwest standout Clayton Custer (left) said about Iowa State. “It was just hard knowing exactly when that was going to be. I want to be able to show what I can do.”

Clayton Custer, the former Blue Valley Northwest standout who announced he was transferring from Iowa State, said he seeks a program “where I can show what I can do.”

Custer will leave Iowa State after averaging 5.8 minutes in 12 games his freshman season. He was The Star’s All-Metro boys’ basketball player of the year in 2014.

“I know I would have been successful here at some point,” Custer said about Iowa State. “It was just hard knowing exactly when that was going to be. I want to be able to show what I can do.”

Iowa State starting point guard Monte Morris was a second team All-Big 12 selection and ranks first nationally in assist-turnover ratio as a sophomore this season.

Custer could have remained with the Cyclones, who won the Big 12 Tournament this season. Now, he’ll reopen his recruiting. He can take five official visits.

“I’m taking it all in at this point,” Custer said.
