Mason City sophomore Makenzie Meyer verbally committed to play basketball at Iowa on Saturday.
Meyer announced the commitment over Twitter.
“It’s official I’m gonna be a hawkeye! Thanks to everyone who has helped me achieve my dream especially my coaches, teammates, and family,” Meyer tweeted.
Mason City coach Curt Klaahsen was not surprised by the commitment.
“She’s been a Hawkeye fan her whole life,” Klaahsen said. “She feels very honored that they were interested and she’s very comfortable there. I think for her it was a great fit.”
Meyer is a 5-foot-7 guard who averaged 9.8 points last season. She helped Mason City reach the semifinals of the Class 5-A state tournament. She was also a first-team all-CIML Northern Division selection by the league’s coaches.
“She’s always been on people’s radar but she really got people’s attention over the summer,” Klaahsen said. “She keeps getting better and better. Her future is limitless.”
