Iowa State has added K.J. Bluford to its roster for the 2013-14 season, making the number of commits six for the year. 

Bluford leads his team in scoring with 18.2 points per game and shoots 38.7 percent from behind the arc. 

Bluford, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound shooting guard from Northeast Nebraska Community College, says he likes to think that he can play like Iowa State's Tyrus McGee. 

"Someone that's going to come in and play hard and make shots," Bluford said. 

Bluford visited Iowa State on Monday for the Oklahoma game, where the Cyclones beat the Sooners 83-64. 

Bluford said after his visit he "sealed the deal" when he talked to his dad on the phone to discuss the decision together. Then Bluford said he texted Hoiberg and assistant coach T.J. Otzelberger to inform them he had committed to Iowa State. 

"The facilities, the crowd, the coaches and how they treated me," Bluford said. "The philosophy of coach Hoiberg made me want to come there."
