For the entire summer, Kevin Ollie was all over the place looking for his future point guard. Finally, he found his guy in the junior college ranks.
Wednesday morning, Marianna (Fla.) Chipola College freshman Sam Cassell, Jr. announced via his twitter account that he is Connecticut bound.
A native of Baltimore who attended prep school for a year before initially signing with Maryland, the 2012 Rivals150 prospect was forced to go the junior college route.
Throughout the fall, Cassell had emerged as one of the more heavily recruited junior college players in the country. However, Ollie and his staff were able to form the best relationship with him.
The son of long time NBA'er Sam Cassell, the 6-foot-3 floor general learned a lot of tricks from his father. Cassell is a very crafty scorer who uses changes of pace and awkward release angles to keep defenders on their heels. He handles well, understands how to read a ball screen and has some physical toughness.
A three-star prospect who will receive heavy consideration for four-star status during his freshman season of junior college, Cassell will arrive at UConn with three seasons of eligibility because he redshirted his first year at Chipola. He joins five-star small forward Daniel Hamilton in the Huskies 2014 recruiting class.
