2023 4-star Pryce Sandfort / Iowa Basketball Athletics

Class of 2023 four-star prospect Pryce Sandfort has committed to Iowa, he tells On3.

The 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward out of Waukee (Iowa) High chose the Hawkeyes over offers from Nebraska, Clemson, Seton Hall, Davidson, Drake, and others.

Sandfort is the No. 142 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 28 small forward and the No. 2 player in the state of Iowa.

On3’s evaluators are much higher than the industry on Sandfort, ranking him 99th nationally in the class.

Joining Sandort as a Hawkeye in 2023 is three-star power forward Owen Freeman and three-star point guard Brock Harding.

Sandfort on his commitment to Iowa

“I chose Iowa because I know it’s the perfect fit for me,” Sandfort said to On3. “I’ve been watching them for a while and I think the system they have is exactly what I want to play in. I also love the culture they have as a program and I want to be a part of it. I also believe it’s a place where I can compete for championships.”

What type of player is Iowa getting in Pryce Sandfort?

“Iowa is getting a player who can do everything on the court, but more importantly who wants to win above everything else,” he says.

Sandfort has a message for the Iowa fan base.

“A message I have for Iowa fans is that I’m going to give 100% to bring more championships to the program.”

Scouting Summary

“It’s the versatility that pops off the page for Pryce Sandfort. Standing at a legit 6-6, he has the ball skills to initiate offense, the vision to play on the ball in the half-court, and he is a 40% type three-point shooter. There will be questions about his quickness and overall athletic burst, but his length and IQ make up for that. His brother plays at Iowa and both parents played in college. There is a toughness with him, a competitive nature he shows. Offensively, Sandfort can play at any of the three perimeter positions.”
