AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says Tennessee transfer Ray Kasongo has joined the program.

Kasongo, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward from Toronto, will sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Kasongo played in 22 games for the Volunteers last season, averaging 1.4 points and 1.5 rebounds after transferring from the College of Southern Idaho.

Kasongo will give the Cyclones some much-needed size once he becomes eligible. Iowa State recently signed a pair of one-year graduate transfers, Merrill Holden and Darrell Bowie, as fill-ins following the graduations of Georges Niang and Jameel McKay.
