Ben Rand To Transfer To Northern Illinois

Former Rochelle star Ben Rand will transfer into Rob Judson’s Northern Illinois basketball program. Two weeks ago, Rand, one of the top Class of 2003 prospects in the state of Illinois, announced his intention of transferring out of the University of Iowa.

Rand, a 6-6 shooting guard, will have to sit out next year per NCAA rules. He will then have three years of eligibility remaining, and could become an instant force for the Huskies.

Northern Illinois’ basketball future could become quite bright with Rand, and a 2004 recruiting class that includes 6-8 bruiser Cyrus Tate (Homewood-Flossmoor), 6-4 shooter Zach Pancratz (Schaumburg) and 6-5 wing Frank Clair (Chicago Leo). Tate may be the key. His stock soared with a sensational season for state runner-up Homewood-Flossmoor, and has a chance to be a dominating force inside.
