Nike EYBL record holder commits to Eastern Illinois

During the 2013-2014 season, Eastern Illinois shot 32 percent from beyond the arc, which was the third-worse percentage in the Ohio Valley Conference. Deep shooting should improve when Casey Teson steps on campus in the fall of 2015.

The 6-foot-2 sharpshooter committed to Eastern Illinois on Friday evening, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.

In May, Teson tied a Nike EYBL record when he connected on 10 3-pointers in a single game. Teson, who played with MOKAN Elite out of Kansas on the grassroots circuit, dropped 34 points — shooting 10-of-12 from deep — in a 105-70 win over Team Takeover during Session Three of the EYBL regular season on May 17 in Hampton, Virginia.

Teson went on to average 10.2 points, connecting on 43 threes in 16 EYBL games. He shot 49 percent from three on the circuit.

He is the first commitment for Eastern Illinois in the Class of 2015.
