Snag keeps Archie from Hawks’ perch

Vincennes’ Devon Archie committed to the Iowa basketball program last month. Despite the spring national signing period beginning last Wednesday, Archie remains unsigned.

Archie, a 6-foot-9 forward, has yet to turn in his paperwork to Iowa, but there appears to be no change of heart, according to a couple of Iowa officials. Archie’s mother still has to sign his letter of intent, and the two have had a little difficulty getting together to ink the proper paperwork.

An Iowa official said Saturday that Archie’s paperwork likely will be sent back Monday. Archie averaged 6.8 points and six rebounds a game last season while starting 19 of 30 games. Iowa already has received a signed letter of intent from high school point guard Cully Payne.

Also, Iowa Coach Todd Lickliter spent Friday recruiting in Dallas, just hours after wining and dining boosters in Fort Dodge on Thursday night. Iowa still has three scholarships to offer, and Lickliter told me Wednesday he plans to offer at least one more for this fall. Iowa could bank the other two for the next school year.
