UConn Offers Sam Cassell Jr.

UConn has offered a scholarship to Sam Cassell Jr. and the senior shooting guard is considering the Huskies.

“They need a big guard that can score and can shoot,” the 6-foot-2 Cassell Jr. told SNY.tv by text following his unofficial visit Wednesday.

Cassell Jr. went for 40 points last Friday against the Winchendon School and is also hearing from Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, USF, UCF, Washington, Maryland and Seton Hall.

Florida State was also expected to watch him practice Wednesday.

“Everyone’s calling on him now,” Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said. “He’s played himself into being the best available guard. He’s blowing up.”

Cassell Jr. expects to sign during the late signing period in the spring.
