February 27, 2013By Kenneth True of Nations Elite
The state of Iowa has produced its fair share of hoops talent over the most recent years including former North Carolina star and current Golden State Warrior Harrison Barnes. Casey Schlatter is hoping to be the next Iowa star.
With offers from Creighton, Northern Iowa, Drake, Rice, and North Dakota Schlatter is well on his way. The 6’9 195 lbs. combo forward has also received interest from Stanford, Cal, Wichita State, Indiana State, Minnesota, Tulsa, Lehigh, Nebraska, San Francisco, Davidson, and South Dakota State.
Casey who plays with the Iowa Barnstormers on the summer circuit says “Right now I’m interested in all of the schools, and I’m trying to find out more information about their programs and coaches.” Schlatter added “Tulsa stands out some, just because Danny Manning is their head coach and he’s great at developing post players.”
The talented combo forward also told SX that North Dakota, Rice, and South Dakota State have all been to his games recently. So far Casey hasn’t been able to visit any of the programs recruiting him because he says “I’ve been really busy with my high school season.”
Schlatter plays for Iowa Falls (IA) Alden HS.
