Elliot Cadeau is the 2024 On3 Consensus No. 7 ranked player. The 6-foot-2 point guard averaged 10.8-points, 6.5-assists, and 4.3-rebounds while shooting 46.2-percent from three during Nike’s Peach Jam.

“I’m a pass-first point guard,” Cadeau told On3. “I think I’m very quick off the dribble, off my first step. I just make the right plays.”

College programs have started to prioritize the five-star. On3 caught up with Elliot Cadeau to talk about his visits and recruitment.

“I set my first official up with Texas Tech on September 24,” Cadeau said. “I want to get down and see UNC too.”

Cadeau talks visits

Texas Tech: “I’ve always just been a fan of them, and they were my dream school when I was a little kid, so when I got offered, I thought why not take my first visit out to them. The year I started watching college basketball was the year they went to the Final Four. I really like how they play defensively. Right now, I wouldn’t say they’re a favorite to commit or anything.”

North Carolina: “I was recently offered by UNC, and I definitely want to go down there and take an official visit. Coach (Hubert) Davis has been watching me. They are a winning program. I like to be on teams that win.”

Cadeau talks recruitment

“I’m hearing a lot from Tennessee, Baylor, and Kentucky, too,” Cadeau said.

**Baylor and Kentucky were three deep at this particular game, including head coaches from both programs. Tennessee was also there.

Baylor: “I know someone that committed there, Miro Little. He’s from Finland. I’ve known him throughout my Swedish national team experience, so Miro told them about me. So they came to some games to watch me, and they like me, but they haven’t offered yet.”

Kentucky: “I like how they produce pros. It’s proven that they produce pros, and that’s what I want to be, so that definitely might be an option for me.”

Tennessee: “I like Tennessee too. I think I might go visit them. I like their coach and their play style. A friend of mine, Zakai Zeigler, went out there, and it really worked out for him.”

G-League and OTE

“Overtime Elite has been in contact with me,” Cadeau said. “I chose Link Academy instead of that route. I haven’t been in contact with the G-League yet, but I would love to hear from them.”

Cadeau’s take

“Development,” Cadeau said. “I obviously want to go to a team that wins a lot. I want to play for a coach with a play style that allows me to showcase my talents and make me stand out to NBA scouts.

“I’m wide open right now and not making a decision yet if I want to reclassify or not. I don’t know yet.”
