Bolton, Iowa State’s prime scorer, says he’ll switch


AMES, Iowa — Rasir Bolton, Iowa State‘s main scorer this previous season, has entered the NCAA switch portal and will probably be seeking to play at his third college in 4 years.

Bolton left Penn State in 2019 after then-coach Patrick Chambers made a race-tinged remark to Bolton. Chambers resigned in October 2020.

Bolton averaged 15.5 factors per recreation for an Iowa State crew that received solely two video games. Coach Steve Prohm was fired and changed by T.J. Otzelberger.

In saying his plan to switch, Bolton tweeted, “On March eleventh I acknowledged my continued dedication to #CyclONEnation, I later realized that each choice shouldn’t be ours to make.”

Bolton began 50 of 51 video games in two seasons at Iowa State and averaged 15 factors, 4 rebounds and three.3 assists.

The native of Petersburg, Virginia, could have one 12 months of eligibility as a graduate switch.
