AMES, Iowa — On the same day that Iowa State announced Steve Prohm is staying in Ames longer, Coach Prohm announced Cameron Lard is leaving Ames.
The departure was announced in a press release by Iowa State University:
Iowa State redshirt sophomore Cameron Lard has decided to leave Iowa State to pursue other basketball opportunities, head coach Steve Prohm announced Tuesday.
“We appreciate the efforts that Cameron gave to our program during his time with us,” Prohm said. “Cameron has made great strides and we certainly wish him well in the future. We will continue to help him in any way we can.”
Lard saw action in 24 games for the Cyclones last season, averaging 5.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 12.5 minutes per game.
“I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Cyclone family and will never forget the memories made with my teammates,” Lard said. “I can’t thank Coach Prohm and Iowa State enough for what they’ve done for me. Thank you also to Cyclone Nation for all of your support.”
Lard’s departure leaves the Cyclones with three experienced returnees in the post in rising redshirt juniors Michael Jacobson and Solomon Young, as well as freshman George Conditt IV.
