Tyrese Haliburton, the 6-foot-5 combo guard from Oshkosh North (WI) High School, announced his commitment to Iowa State on Monday via Twitter.

I would like to thank all of the coaches who thought I was talented enough to play at their university,” said Haliburton in a statement released via Twitter. “It’s truly been a blessing. I want to thank the whole city of Oshkosh, my home, for teaching me life lessons and being such a great city. I promise to represent this city for the rest of my life and make the 920 proud. With all of this being said, I am beyond excited to say I will be continuing my academic and athletic career playing for Coach [Steve] Prohm at Iowa State University.”

According to 247Sports, Haliburton is ranked as the No. 177 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 5 player from the state of Wisconsin. He joins Zion Griffin as the second commit in the Cyclone’s 2018 class.

Haliburton, who cut his list to five earlier this month, took official visits to Nebraska (Sept. 1). He also had official visits planned to Iowa State (Sept. 28), Northern Iowa (Oct. 13), and Cincinnati (Oct. 20). He first received an offer from the Cyclones this past summer (July 30).

2018 forward Jaedon Ledee, who will announce his college decision on Tuesday, has Iowa State included in his final eight but did not take an official visit there.
