Sam Cassell Jr. To Visit USF This Weekend


With USF holding onto one and possibly two scholarships in the Class of 2012, Stan Heath will have former Maryland commit Sam Cassell Jr. come in for an official visit this weekend.

The 6'3" combo guard out of Baltimore reportedly committed to the Terrapins last week, but his father Sam Sr. quickly denied those claims.

USF is in need of another point guard, with Anthony Collins and Blake Nash as the only two ball handlers on the roster. If you're wondering why we'd like Cassell Jr. the roster, let Ben Broman from our sister site Testudo Times tell you, (link is above.)

If you identified three main needs for the Terrapins, it'd probably be someone who can play the point, an outside shooter, and a secondary perimeter scorer. And more than anyone else on the board, Cassell fills all three needs.

USF is also in need of all those things, plus his size would allow Stan to use two ball handlers against high pressure teams without giving up much size on the wing. In the highlight film below, you'll see his ability to shoot from anywhere, and it looks like he has his dad's stepback jumper down without a problem.

The Bulls are in a great position as they are the first team to get an OV after Cassell's decommitment. With visits to FSU and Villanova on tap, the Bulls will be able to show off the new facilities and possible playing time with a team that is primed for another quality season next year.

And if you don't think we will bring this gif out 100,000 times if he comes to USF, you really don't know us all that well.



We have some Cassell Jr. highlights after the jump. We'll have more for you after his visit this weekend.
