IOWA CITY, Iowa — Dominique Uhl picked Iowa on Friday morning, giving the Hawkeyes their second men’s basketball recruit in the class of 2014.

Uhl, who stands 6-foot-8 and weighs about 190 pounds, chose Iowa over Boston College and Temple. He will play forward for the Hawkeyes.

He made his announcement on SNY.tv this morning with Adam Zagoria, who covers the New York Knicks and Big East basketball for NBA.com and of ZagsBlog.com.

“I’m going to attend the University of Iowa,” Uhl said as he pulled an Iowa hat from his back pocket. “It’s been tough. I liked all three schools. I just liked Coach (Fran) McCaffery a lot, and I like the style of play, the facility, everything.”

Uhl lives in Point Pleasant Beach (N.J.) but originally hails from Frankfurt, Germany. He visited Iowa on Sept. 20. He made official visits to Temple, Miami (Fla.) and Boston College and had offers from Big Ten schools Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn State and future member Maryland. Rivals rated him as a three-star recruit.

Hawkeye Report Publisher Tom Kakert told The Gazette last month that Uhl’s stock soared over the summer.

“They see me as a three, maybe a four to play against smaller players,” Uhl told Zagoria. “They like my skill set, that I can handle the ball and shoot, too.”

Uhl fills a need for Iowa, which loses forwards Zach McCabe and Melsahn Basabe this year. Uhl will add versatility and depth at forward behind Aaron White and Jarrod Uthoff in 2014-15. He’ll likely compete for minutes with Kyle Meyer.

Uhl joins Wisconsin shooter Brady Ellingson as members of Iowa’s 2014 class. The Hawkeyes have two scholarships available in 2014.
