IOWA CITY, Iowa- Callie Levin has only played one season of high school basketball, but the Solon native already has decided on where she will play at the next level.
Levin, a 5-foot-9 point guard in the class of 2024, announced her commitment to Iowa Monday on Twitter.

Levin chose Iowa over programs such as Iowa State, and she still three years left in her high school career.
Levin was one of only two players in the state to average at least 19 points, fie rebounds, four steals and 3.5 assists per game last season while leading Solon to a 17-6 record, a WAMAC Conference title and a spot in the Class 3A regional title game.
The WAMAC East Division player of the year last season, Levin was a first-team all-state pick in Class 3A a year ago after ranking seventh in 3A in scoring at 19 points per game.
The 19 points per game were the most for a freshman in the state a year ago.
Levin shot 47 percent from the field and 72 percent from the free throw line as a freshman, making a team-high 40 3-pointers while shooting 31 percent from beyond the arc.
She also ranked second on the team with 5 rebounds per game and led Solon with 4 steals and 3.7 assists per game.
Levin competes for the All-Iowa attack program on the AAU circuit and is a lifelong Hawkeye fan.
She now is in position to replace Iowa All-America point guard Caitlin Clark, who will be a sophomore this coming season.
Levin is also the first Solon native to commit to the Iowa women’s basketball team since guard Lindsey Meder played for the Hawkeyes from 1998-02. Meder is Iowa’s fourth all-time leading scorer with 1,906 career points.
