Iowa State basketball adds Abdel Nader to roster

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State says that Northern Illinois transfer Abdel Nader has signed with the Cyclones.

Nader, a 6-foot-7 forward from Skokie, Ill., averaged 13.1 points and 5.6 rebounds a game for the Huskies as a sophomore last season.

The Cyclones announced late Tuesday that Nader will sit out the 2013-14 season and have two years of eligibility left at Iowa State after that.

The addition of Nader should help the Cyclones fill the void star Melvin Ejim will leave when he graduates after next season.

Nader was named first-team All-State by the Chicago Tribune as a senior for Niles North High in Illinois, and he made the MAC’s All-Freshman team at Northern Illinois.
