Manual Picks Big East Program

Carbondale (Ill.) High power forward Manual Cass committed just as the signing period drew to a close. Cass is headed to the Big East.

Jerry Wainwright's DePaul Blue Demons added another piece to its recruiting puzzle this week when 6-foot-7 athletic power forward Manual Cass picked the program.

Cass had officially visited the Blue Demons, Iowa and Bradley. However, it was DePaul that made the best impression on him.

"The atmosphere, it's on the outskirts of downtown I like that," Cass told "The academics are pretty good. I feel comfortable with the people I was around while was up there. Plus, it's in the Big East, the conference play is pretty good."

The commitment by Cass is the second of the year for DePaul. The Blue Demons signed Top 100 point guard Will Walker during the early period.
