AMES, IOWA (AP) - Royce White, the talented forward who left Minnesota under a cloud, has decided to play basketball at Iowa State.

White, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward from Minneapolis, was Minnesota’s Mr. Basketball in 2009. He signed with Minnesota but never played a game for the Golden Gophers.

White was suspended last fall after an incident at the Mall of America. He later pleaded guilty to theft and disorderly conduct.

White left Minnesota in February after being charged with trespassing in connection to an alleged theft of a laptop computer from a university dorm.

White has four years of eligibility left and is in the process of applying for a waiver from the NCAA to become eligible next season. Iowa State said it expects to learn the results of that waiver request later this summer.
