Rummel 5-foot-10 guard Iman Fazande is heading into the teeth of his senior season still without an offer to his name, but certainly not lacking confidence.
After playing his 17U season with high profile grassroots teams, Fazande feels he proved he’s a D1-caliber guard. And hopes his current interest will turn into offers soon.
“I still just have interest, and the last schools to reach out were UNO, Southern Miss and Butler University,” said Fazande, who also said Northwestern State and Xavier (LA) have been showing interest.
“I heard from them in the summer while playing With NOLA 23 and Urban DFW, a Texas team.”
Fazande added: “I feel like I’m really underrated, and I’m just hoping to get a lot of offers. I feel like I’m good enough for Division I right now.”
With an improved jumper and an ability to find teammates for buckets, Fazande is one of Louisiana’s best playmakers.
“One improvement I’ve made is most definitely my jump-shot, and then I’ve been working to get my teammates more involved in the games,” said Fazande.
“I’m most definitely a point guard, but I can score whenever I want. I’m like a scoring point guard.”
The floor general has been starting with the Raiders since he was a sophomore, and has a much different role now then he did then.
“It’s much different, I have a much bigger role to fill, trying to get my team to state. And I think we can get to state,” said Fazande. “I feel like we’re playing good as a team. Right now we’re 9-1.”
And the ultimate goal for Fazande: get to that next level.
“I’m looking forward to playing college basketball, he said. “That’s my main goal.”
