This hasn’t been officially confirmed by Jacksonville State as of this writing, but former Notre Dame player, and brief Missoui transfer Cameron Biedscheid is becoming a Gamecock.
The 6’7 forward was most recently at the University of Missouri, but left in late September, having never played a game for the Tigers. According to multiple sources, he was contacted by several schools and took a visit to Iona, and even verbally comitted to the Gales.
But Earl Austin Junior reports Biedscheid he took another visit to Jacksonville State a week later, choosing the Gamecocks
“I really like Coach Green and his staff,” Kim Biedscheid, Cameron’s dad, told the website. “I have known (assistant coach) Ronnie Dean for a long time and that made the decision a lot easier. I like the hometown feel of Jacksonville, Alabama and I think it will be a good fit for Cameron.”
Biedscheid will begin classes at Jacksonville State when the spring semester starts in January. When he’ll play is still up in the air. He’ll be eligible in December of 2015, but since he received a medical release from Missouri, he is petitioning the NCAA for a waiver to obtain immediate eligibility this season when he enters school.
At Notre Dame, Biedscheid scored in double figures six times as a freshman in 2012-13, and led the Irish in scoring in three games, averaging 6.2 points a contest. He missed only one game, serving a one-game Big East suspension after trading punches with a player from St. John’s.
Southeast Missouri should be back at full strength tonight as they host Southern Illinois. According to the Southeast Missourian, guard Josh Langford, is expected to return after injuring his knee against Missouri. He missed the Redhawks win against Southeast Louisiana. Forward Aaron Adeoye is expected to play as well, after injuring his wrist in the final minute of that game against the Lions.
The Redhawks are favorites at home against the Salukis, who are 3-0 against the OVC this season with wins over Austin Peay, Tennessee State and SIUE.
You could argue the Redhawks have been flying under the radar a bit at 4-4, with UT Martin getting the underdog love in the West Division. But SEMO’s leading scorer, Jarekious Bradley, is still having a really good hear. The guard has pitched in double figures in six-straight starts since returning from a quad contusion injury, which caused him to miss the Redhawks opening two games. Bradley averages 17.2 points a game, and is one of the only Redhawks hitting consistently from the free-throw, 16-of-18 (88.9%) for they year.
