Xavier secures the commitment of Florida State transfer Cam’ron Fletcher from the transfer portal, a development likely to grab everyone’s attention, especially considering his namesake, the renowned New York rapper. Described as a sizable forward standing at 6’7″ and weighing 220 pounds according to last year’s media guide, Fletcher’s playing time last season was limited to just seven games due to injury. Despite this, he managed to post respectable averages of 6.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assist per game during those appearances. Throughout his career, Fletcher has demonstrated prowess on the boards and has displayed some shooting range, boasting a 33.9% success rate from beyond the arc on moderate attempts.

However, health concerns linger, a recurring issue among Xavier’s frontcourt players. Fletcher has endured knee injuries twice in his final two years at Florida State, including the one that prematurely ended his last season. A fully healthy Fletcher could significantly bolster Xavier’s front line, but uncertainty remains regarding his availability throughout the season. Considering the challenges posed by the COVID year and Fletcher’s injury history, it’s difficult to guarantee his condition, although he likely has two years of eligibility remaining. With his 22nd birthday approaching this summer, Xavier hopes to benefit from Fletcher’s talents for at least a couple of seasons.
