George Conditt, the 6-foot-10 power forward from Corliss (IL) High School, announced his commitment to Iowa State on Monday via Twitter. He took an official visit to Iowa State last month (Sept. 2).

“I love Iowa State,” Conditt told D1VISION on Monday. “They’re a great family with what they have going on and what they’re going to have with us coming in there. It’s just a great family fit.”

According to 247Sports, Conditt is ranked as the No. 219 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 6 player from the state of Illinois. He joins Zion Griffin and Tyrese Haliburton, as the third commit in the Cyclones 2018 class.

“I believe in the plan that they laid out for me,” Conditt said of Iowa State. “I enjoy watching them and watching them show me how they would develop me as a player.”

After cutting his list to three last month, Conditt chose Iowa State over New Mexico and Illinois. In addition to his Iowa State visit, Conditt also took official visits to Illinois (Sept. 15) and New Mexico (Sept. 29).

“I enjoyed everything from the game, to the fans, to the players, to the coaching staff,” said Conditt on his official visit to Iowa State. “Everything was great. The fans treated me like I was already a player.”

The addition of Conditt gives Iowa State the No. 36 ranked recruiting class in the country per 247Sports, and the No. 5 recruiting class in the Big-12. The Cyclones will also host 2018 forward Talen Horton-Tucker for an official visit later this month (Oct. 13).

“The reason I’m most excited for Iowa State is that I believe in what we have already,” said Conditt. “We’re national championship contenders, regardless of who else comes in. It would be great to have Talen Horton-Tucker with us. If he commits to Iowa State it would help us a lot. He’s a great player and a great friend of mine, so I’m going to respect his decision, just like everyone respected mine.”

Despite only being considered a three-star recruit, Conditt held over 30 offers before cutting his list down, including Iowa State, Illinois, New Mexico, Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, VCU, and Washington, among others.

“I’m looking forward to what they can do this season and I’m looking forward to what we can do next season for Iowa State.”
