Hawkeyes Sign Four Prep Basketball Players
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa has signed prep basketball players Ben Brust, Cody Larson, Devyn Marble, and Zach McCabe to national letters of intent.

Brust is a point guard from Illinois who averaged 27.5 points per game last season.

Larson, a 6-foot-9 forward from Sioux Falls, S.D., was a first-team all-state pick in 2008-09.

Marble, a 6-foot-5 wing player, is the son of former Hawkeyes legend Roy Marble.

McCabe was a teammate of current Iowa post player Brennan Cougill. McCabe is from Sioux City and helped lead Bishop Heelan to a state title last season.

Hawkeyes coach Todd Lickliter praised his latest recruiting class for its skills, versatility and basketball knowledge.

Wednesday marks the start of the early signing period for recruits.
