Cape Breton Lands Kashrell Lawrence
Published by Gilbert Muako on February 19, 2012
Last night, Cape Breton landed one of the most underrated players in the 2012 class. 6-foot-2 REDA wing Kashrell Lawrence informed CROWN that he has decided to end his recruitment and commit to the Cape Breton Capers in the CIS.
“They have been recruiting me since last season and have been wanting a lot since then. From that, I’ve had time to build a great relationship with all the staff at the school,” Lawrence said.
“When I went on my visit, I loved what I saw- a potential home. They have a great program history and I want to build on that.”
Lawrence will have a huge impact at this level as he brings a lot to the floor with his high motor, extremely strong body which he uses to attack the rim, great offensive rebounding at his height. He has also made great leaps on his outside shooting and ball handling.
Lawrence picked Cape Breton over Simon Frasier, Thompson Rivers, Dalhousie, Ryerson and Laurentian.
Cape Breton went the extra mile when recruiting Lawrence, he took notice of that and felt there was no other place for him.
“They were the only school to build a relationship with not only me but my mom as well. Lastly once I broke my thumb/wrist they were the only program that genuinely cared, so I knew I had to commit.”
