Izaiah Brockington, Iowa State’s top basketball player, is turning pro. So is his running mate George Conditt IV. 

The pair are leaving the program after leading to the Cyclones during a remarkable journey that ended with a loss against Miami in the Sweet 16.

Brockington posted a goodbye message to Iowa State fans on Monday morning and Conditt did the same later in the day. 

It’s not exactly earth-shattering news that Brockington, the Penn State transfer, is finished after his one-and-only season at Iowa State. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 16.9 points, while shooting 46.7% from two-point range. He also averaged 6.8 rebounds a game in leading the Cyclones during a surprising 2021-20 season.

Conditt, a senior with an extra year available to him because of the pandemic, averaged 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in a bounceback season for him.
