Melsahn Basabe commits to the Iowa Hawkeyes

At least it's a self-reporting from Mel that he is a Hawkeye.

This afternoon, Basabe hit up his Twitter with this message:
"It's Official... Im an Iowa Hawkeye now"

Of course nothing is official until there is confirmation of a signed NLI, but if it holds up, it's a great snag for Iowa. The commit softens the blow of losing former signee Cody Larson who left Iowa for Florida, as well as the loss of Aaron Fuller who transferred to USC.

This is would be the first official recruit for Fran McCaffery as the new head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes Mens Basketball team. He will join Roy Marble Jr and Zach McCabe in the 2010 recruiting class.
