Cluess Snags Big One
Former St. Mary’s, Suffolk Community College, and CW Post Head Coach Tim Cluess, who has been a big winner at every stop and is now working his magic at Iona, landed what some are describing as the best recruit to ever to sign with a school in the MAAC Conference. Considered a top 50 player coming out of high school, Norvel Pelle had to go to prep school first to improve his grades and test scores, and has now committed to play for the Gaels after originally committing to St. John’s. Don’t forget, Hills West Superman Tavon Sledge is also on the Cluess bandwagon now. He transferred to Iona after getting impatient to play at Iowa State, and will join Pelle and the rest of Iona’s talented incoming recruits and transfers after sitting out a year. Look for the team to do some serious damage in the NCAA Tournament in years to come.
