    Count Florida and Texas among the latest schools involved with 6-foot-3 Notre Dame Prep shooting guard Sam Cassell Jr.

    Florida has called and Texas assistant Rob Lanier is coming Friday to watch him play against Tilton.

    Cassell Jr. previously had interest from Maryland, Washington, Nebraska and others.

    The 2012 guard plans to sign in the spring.

    “No top five yet,” he said by text. “I’m still open and no visits [set].”

    Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said Cassell has been playing very well of late.

    “He’s had two 30-point performances,” Hurd said. “He’s knocking down a bunch of shots for us. He’s playing solid defense. He’s doing everything we’re asking him to do.”
