Price Sandforththe number 135 prospect in the class of 2023 has gone to Iowa, he told 247Sports.
A 6’7″ marksman wing from Waukee, Iowa, NW, had just made an official visit to the Hawkeyes, where he couldn’t wait for more visits and knew exactly where he wanted to be.
“I went on my official visit and told my parents that after the visit I would never go there and that I would visit them, but I went to visit and fell in love with everything they had to offer,” he said about why he chose Iowa. “Coaches, players, just Iowa City in general. I just fell in love with him and didn’t want to go on any other visits.”
During his visit, Sandforth spent some time at Fran McCaffrey’s house to dine with the team, and that’s when he knew this was the place for him.
“It was when I walked up to Fran’s house and the whole team was there and I was sitting on the couch with all the guys and coaches just talking and having a good time and it dawned on me that I want to be here,” he described . the moment he hit him.
Sandforth has a brother who is currently in Iowa. Payton Sandforth – and during the recruitment of his brother, and now his own, he became very good friends with the coaching staff.
“I talked to the coach [Matt] Gaten has been for a while and he’s loyal to his guys and I saw that from the way my brother played for him,” he said of his relationship with the staff. “His loyalty and honesty to the players will go a long way towards me and my college career and I need a coach to be a player coach. The way he trains and his style is perfect for me.”
A term often used to describe Sandforth is “marksman,” but he says he’ll bring in more than that.
“I think I’ll bring in an all-around player who can pass, shoot, defend, just a high-IQ player who brings it all,” he said.
Sandfort is Iowa’s third commitment in joining the class of 2023. Brock Harding as well as Owen Freeman.
