Bruin Recruiting: Prep News Roundup (12/28)

By Bruin Basketball Report 

Prep News Roundup is published every Monday. 


No. 1 Mater Dei 101, Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Montebello 30: Five Mater Dei players reached double figures, led by Gary Franklin, Katin Reinhardt and Keala King with 14 apiece. Tyler Lamb added 13. OC Varsity 12/26

According to ESPN, UCLA has received a commitment from junior college point guard Lazeric Jones to play next season in Westwood. The 6'2 200 lb powerfully built point guard is considered by many to be the top junior college point guard in the nation.  He currently plays for John A. Logan Junior College in Illinois. Bruin Basketball Report 12/27


Angelo Chol, 6-foot-8, 200 pounds, is a rebounding monster, averaging 12.3 a game. He also scores 17.1 a game, most of them through put-backs. The Wildcats already have a commitment from Class of 2011 power forward Sidiki Johnson of Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict’s Prep, but Miller and Richardson have realized that Chol is too good of a talent to pass on. Practically every Pac-10 program is recruiting him in addition to UConn, North Carolina and Kansas, among others. Tucson Citizen 12/22

Alpharetta Milton 71, Baltimore-St. Frances 68: Dai-Jon Parker and Julian Royal, each a top 30-ranked junior, scored 20 points apiece to lead Milton. Naples News 12/23

Former Bloomington North standout Ray McCallum had 34 points, nine rebounds and seven assists as Detroit Country Day defeated Fort Wayne Bishop Luers 93-77 in the finale of the five-game Michael Clarke Duncan "You Can Do Anything" IPSAC/Midwest Basketball Challenge. "I've been looking forward to this game for a while," said McCallum, a 6-1 senior who is considering scholarship offers from Arizona, Detroit, Florida and UCLA.

Terrence Jones as the face of Jefferson (Portland, Ore.)? The senior never would've believed it three years ago. But that's what Jefferson boys' basketball coach Pat Strickland now calls Jones, both for how he carries himself off the court and how he carries the Democrats on it. Jefferson (Portland, Ore.) forward Terrence Jones averaged over 24 points last season on his way to a state championship. Jones wasn't exactly heading in that direction as a freshman. School was just a nuisance in the way of his basketball dreams, and he treated it as such.  RISE 12/23

Talley not only had the play of the night, he out-performed the 6-5 Trey Zeigler, who finished with 26 points. “We know he’s an elite player in the country,” Talley said of Zeigler. “We knew he could take over at anytime. We knew we had to execute our plays.” Ranked as the No. 26 player in the country on, Zeigler is deciding between schools like Duke, UCLA, Oklahoma, Michigan and Michigan State as to where he will play collegiately next year.

Alpharetta (Ga.)-Milton 57, Los Angeles-Westchester 54 (OT): Julian Royal scored 23 points, including two key free throws with 11 seconds to go in overtime, to lead Milton. The Eagles, who finished a Georgia runner-up last year, took fifth in their first tournament appearance. Naples News 12/23
