  • Schadrac Casimir to Iona

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    SchadracIona landed a commitment Monday from 5-foot-10 point guard Schadrac Casimir, a Connecticut native who did a postgraduate year at South Kent (Conn.)

    Casimir also considered N.C. Central, Sacred Heart, Fairfield and Cal State-Bakersfield.

    “They were recruiting me the longest and had faith in me when people had doubts I was a D-1 player and it fits my playing style,” he told SNY.tv.

    One source with direct knowledge of his game said he could score 1,500 points in college and compared him to Louisville guard Russ Smith.

    “I think me and Russ both play with a chip on out shoulder because we are small and have something to prove,” Casimir said.

    “I respect what he did but I’m trying to create my own lane.”

    “Schadrac is a dynamic offensive talent,” South Kent coach Kelvin Jefferson told SNY.tv. “He is a guard who can score at all three levels and has a knack for creating baskets off the dribble. Aside from his ability to score, he is an underrated passer and defender. He’ll be a good addition to an already good Iona team.”

    He is Iona’s second pledge for 2014, joining 6-6 JUCO forward Najeal Young.

    Iona lost in the MAAC championship game to Manhattan, which opens NCAA Tournament play against Louisville.
