Jalen Coleman-Lands’ final year of collegiate eligibility will be played somewhere besides Iowa State.
The senior guard from Indianapolis announced Friday night he’s entering the transfer portal after one season in Ames. Coleman-Lands could have stayed at Iowa State for next season without counting against the program’s scholarship total.
After playing his first five collegiate seasons at Illinois and DePaul, Coleman-Lands averaged 14.3 points and shot 39.5 percent from 3-point range during his only season for the Cyclones. He started 22 of the 23 games he appeared in as Iowa State stumbled to a 2-22 overall mark and 0-18 record in regular-season Big 12 play.
Coleman-Lands’ departure follows Iowa State’s leading scorer last season, Rasir Bolton’s announcement he will transfer earlier this week. He’s the sixth player from last season’s roster to enter the transfer portal since T.J. Otzelberger was hired as the program’s new leader, joining Bolton, Dudley Blackwell, Darlinstone Dubar, Tyler Harris and walk-on Nate Jenkins.
