Breeden's List Not Getting Shorter

Casaan Breeden, a 6-foot-8 forward out of Bennettsville (S.C.) Marlboro County, attended camp at an ACC school this week. Breeden, ranked in our current Top 50, has a long list of programs and appears to be in no rush to decide.

One of the top players in the southeast (No. 33 nationally), Casaan Breeden, participated in an individual skills instruction camp at North Carolina State this week. The 6-foot-8 Breeden, a standout at Marlboro County in South Carolina, says that his recruitment is picking up almost daily.

"It's getting wild," Breeden said. "People are calling and saying this and that. Someone even called and asked if I was committed to Georgia."

Well, Breeden squashed any rumors about the Bulldogs as he's not committed to Dennis Felton's program. He is, however, considering Georgia but then again, his list isn't exactly short at this point.

Right now, Breeden feels like he's getting a lot of interest from N.C. State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Tennessee, Clemson, South Carolina, St. John's, Marquette, DePaul, Connecticut, Kentucky and Florida.

During the last visitation period, Clemson, Tennessee, N.C. State, Georgia, Georgia Tech and South Carolina came to see him; a sign of serious interest from the school's part.

Breeden was a high school teammate of Ra'Sean Dickey last season. However, it seems unlikely that he'll follow the 6-foot-9 Dickey to Atlanta to play for Georgia Tech.

"We played together through middle school and high school. It's time for us to split up and see what we can do."

Breeden wants to play a fast breaking style of basketball. He's an athlete and admittedly that his greatest strength. It only makes sense that he's looking for a place where he can get out and run. This summer, Breeden says he'll work on his ball handling.
