With the college basketball season approaching, fans will begin to hear more about players like Iowa State Cyclones talent Rasir Bolton. The sort of dude who is nationally unknown, but presents a chance to become a bit of a star thanks to a change of scenery as well as the opportunity placed ahead of them.

For Bolton specifically, a Penn State transfer, he’s already impressed at his new stomping grounds.

“He’s a guy that, I think, can really impact our team,” Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said at the team’s annual media day. “Offensively, he’s very talented, gifted. He can score in a lot of ways.”

The 6-foot-3 talent averaged 11.6 points on 38.3% overall shooting and 36.1% from deep.

“Just felt like leaving (Penn State) was the best decision for me and my family,” Rasir Bolton said. “It felt like a real family fit (at Iowa State). It just felt like a place for me … I felt like I could come in and help this team (and) contribute by watching coach Prohm’s playing style and how he plays his guards. That really intrigued me.”

Time will tell just how well of it fit this ends up being, but as it stands now, the Iowa State Cyclones appear to have gotten themselves an impact player on the transfer market.
