Former Illinois basketball player Jalen Coleman-Lands recently was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, and he plans to play that final season at Iowa State.
Coleman-Lands, who has made 235 3-point field goals in his career, made the announcement Saturday on Instagram, choosing the Cyclones over Michigan, N.C. State, USC and California.
The 6-foot-4 guard from Indianapolis played for Illinois in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, starting 39 of 69 games.
He then sat out the 2017-18 season after transferring to DePaul. He played in just nine games with the Blue Demons in 2018-19 before suffering a broken hand, then averaged 11.1 points per game while starting all 32 games last season.
For his career, the former 4-star recruit has averaged 9.7 points in 110 games.
Early in the 2019-20 season, Coleman-Lands scored 17 points in DePaul’s 93-78 victory over Iowa, continuing a career-long history of success against the Hawkeyes. In five career games against Iowa, he has made 20 of 43 3-point field goals.
