Former Notre Dame guard Cameron Biedscheid transfers to Iona
Biedscheid's college basketball career began in South Bend, Ind. The St. Louis native played his freshman season at Notre Dame under coach Mike Brey from 2012-13, averaging 6.2 points and 17.4 minutes per game for the 25-10 Irish.
Biedscheid was held out during the 2013-14 season in order to "develop his game," according to the Chicago Tribune, and he decided to transfer to Missouri. On Oct. 1, Biedscheid announced he would leave Missouri before ever having played a game for the Tigers. The six-foot-seven-inch forward's announcement came just nine months after he left Notre Dame.
While his father told the Columbia Tribune there were no hard feelings between Cameron and the school, he would not disclose his son's reason for leaving the program.
Biedscheid was ranked among the top 75 players in ESPN's 2012 recruiting rankings, and was one of the more sought after guards to commit to Missouri during coach Frank Haith's tenure.
According to CBS Sports, Iona is expected to file a hardship waiver with the NCAA in an attempt to get Biedscheid eligible for the second semester of the 2014-15 season. He has two and a half years of eligibility remaining.
