IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa has signed junior college power forward Dale Jones, competing its six-player recruiting class for 2015.

Jones played at nearby Waterloo (Iowa) West High before spending two seasons at Tyler Junior College in Texas. He’ll be a junior next season.

Jones, who is 6-foot-8 and 220 pounds, averaged 16.9 points and 8.3 rebounds a game last season. He also shot 45 percent from 3-point range.

Jones should help Iowa make up for the loss of forward/center Gabe Olaseni, and his ability to hit 3s could help the Hawkeyes develop a more consistent attack from the perimeter.
