Pitino & Iona add Sweden forward

Rick Pitino has been on a roll since being hired by Iona.

The Gaels head coach has pulled in five total commitments since he accepted the head coaching position.

Johan Crafoord became the fifth player to commit after receiving an offer from Pitino and realizing it was too good to pass up.

“It’s just an overall great situation,” Crafoord said. “Unlike all others with another tremendous player in Osborn Shema.”

Crafoord joins a big recruiting class that features New Mexico Military Institute (NM) center Osborn Shema, Christ the King (NY) shooting guard Ryan Myers, Florida SouthWestern State (FL) guard Berrick JeanLouis, and Garden City CC (KS) guard Tahlik Chavez in Iona’s 2020 recruiting class.
