One of the top point guard in the class of 2024, Elliot Cadeau, is down to six schools: Kansas, Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse, Texas, and Texas Tech.
The 6-foot-2 prospect out of Branson (Mo.) Link Academy has taken official visits to North Carolina, Louisville, and Texas Tech.
Cadeau ranks as the No. 10 overall prospect in the class, according to the On3 Consensus — the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 2 point guard.
The Oradell, N.J. native also received offers from Baylor, Georgetown, Maryland, Tennessee, and others.
Cadeau breaks down his finalists
Kansas: “Kansas is a winning program that is always elite. Their play style is nice and their coach is great.”
Louisville: “Coach Kenny Payne is one of the best coaches I’ve met. I love the culture that he is building in Louisville.”
North Carolina: “I have a really strong relationship with coach (Hubert) Davis. They are a winning program that does great with point guards. I like their style of play a lot.”
Syracuse: “They were one of the first schools to recruit me. They show me a lot of love and I probably would like to visit them.”
Texas: “I was a big fan of coach (Chris) Beard and his achievements so when I was offered by Texas, I was very happy. They have a great program with a great staff.”
Texas Tech: “They were one of the first schools to recruit me. I love their staff and program. I have a strong relationship with the head coach and a couple of the assistants.”
The speed is what jumps off the page immediately with Elliot Cadeau. He is a jet-quick, paint-touch point guard who gets into the paint when he wants. Cadeau is a confident jump shooter with deep range off the bounce and the catch. His size will be the question mark with him. He has good floor vision and a crafty handle to get his spots on the floor, but he does look to shoot first at times. He is a savvy floor general who exudes confidence throughout his team. – On3’s Jamie Shaw
