AMES, Iowa – K.J. Bluford, a 6-2, 185-pound shooting guard from Northeast Community College (Nebraska), signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Iowa State for the upcoming 2013-14 season, Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg announced today.

Bluford is considered one of the best shooters in junior college hoops, drilling 205 3-pointers in his two-year career. A second-team All-Region XI pick in 2013, Bluford averged 17.8 points and made 113 3-pointers at a 38.8 percent clip.

“We feel K.J. is one of the best junior college shooters in the nation,” Hoiberg said. “He’s athletic, experienced and shoots with confidence. He will fit in perfectly in our up-tempo offense and we are looking forward to having him join our team.”

Bluford, who prepped at Robbinsdale Armstrong in the Minneapolis area, scored over 1,000 points in his junior college career. He will be a junior next season.

Bluford joins November signees Matt Thomas, Monte Morris, Richard Amardi, Dustin Hogue and Daniel Edozie as incoming recruits for the class of 2013, which ranks 39th nationally according to ESPN.com.
