Cleveland State basketball targeting Iona transfer Jahaad Procter

Jahaad Procter
Cleveland State is one of several schools that Iona transfer Jahaad Procter is considering, according to a tweet from CBS Sport’s Jon Rothstein.
Procter averaged 5.1 points per game for the Gaels last season as a freshmen. He had seven double-digit scoring games, including a season-high 20 points in a win over Fairfield and 18 points in a loss to Akron.

The 6-foot-3 guard from Harrisburg, Pa., is also reportedly considering Valparaiso, High Point, Wright State, UNC Greensboro, Drexel, Towson, and Louisianna Tech.

Procter will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2016-17 season.

As a prep, Procter was a three-time all-state selection playing for Kirk Smallwood at Harrisburg High School.

The all-time leading scorer at Harrisburg High, Procter averaged 24.4 points per game as a senior, leading the Cougars to a Mid-Penn Commonwealth-championship and an appearance in the PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinals.

CSU is also reportedly in the running to land Ohio State transfer AJ Harris.
