NEW ROCHELLE, NY - Iona College men's basketball head coach Tim Cluess announced the signing of Schadrac Casimir to a National Letter of Intent to play for the Maroon & Gold this season.

"Schadrac is a jet-quick point guard with a great work-ethic and has proven he can score against top competition in both high school and prep school," said Cluess. "We're excited for him to join our program."

Casimir is a 5-9 point guard from Stamford, CT who played four seasons for head coach Mike Walsh at Trinity Catholic High School and a postgraduate year for head coach Kelvin Jefferson at South Kent School in 2013-14.

At South Kent last season, Casimir averaged 19 points per game and led the Cardinals to an 18-8 record and the fourth seed in the Class AAA tournament as well as a berth in the National Prep Championship. He was a Second Team All-NEPSAC performer and scored 30+ points against Brewster Academy, St. Thomas More, and Northfield Mount Hermon.

As a senior at Trinity Catholic, Casimir was named First Team Class L All-State performer. He averaged 26.2 points for the Crusaders and had seven games with 30 or more points, including a 50-point effort against Greenwich. Casimir averaged 4.4 assists, 3.2 steals, while shooting better than 50% from beyond the arc and 90% from the free throw line. He led Trinity Catholic to the FCIAC and Class L State finals. In 2011, he was also a member of the team that won the state championship. His breakout game was a 31 point-effort against Bassick in the FCIAC semifinals.

Trinity Catholic is also the alma mater of former Gael point guard Earl Johnson, who helped lead the Maroon & Gold to the 2001 MAAC Championship and appearance in the NCAA Tournament against Ole Miss.

Casimir played AAU Basketball for the United Sons & Daughters (USAD) program in Hamden, CT.

Casimir joins 6-6 lefty wing Najeal Young in Iona's still forming 2014-15 incoming class.
