"We are extremely pleased that Manuel has decided to join the Blue Demon basketball family" Wainwright said. "Manuel was a player who I thought played with as much intensity and commitment as anyone I saw this summer. He is a special athlete who will make an immediate impact on our program with his speed and positive attitude. It is also great to have a player from the southern part of the state who recognizes what a great opportunity DePaul University provides for him both as a player and a student."
Cass, a 6-7, 205-pound forward, averaged over 16 points and nine rebounds a junior. A high honorable mention All-American selection by Street and Smith's, Cass comes from a winning program as he has been a part of Carbondale's back-to-back state tournament teams and last season helped them to a 31-1 record and a second place finish.
The Blue Demons begin the 2005-06 season, it's first as a member of the BIG EAST Conference and Wainwright's first as head coach, on Saturday when they host Bradley at the Allstate Arena. Game time is 1 p.m. (CST).
