MONTY DID IT. HE GOT A CENTER FOR 2010!!!!!!!! OH THANK HEAVENS ALMIGHTY. WE ARE SAVED!!!!!!
Richard Solomon is 6-9, 200 pounds, ranked 4 stars (Rossi and Crabbe are both 3 stars) by Scout.com. He goes to the same high school as Crabbe. Says:
"Long and slender young post with significant upside. Bouncy, with good feet and hands. Offensive game a bit raw, but he's potentially one of the top posts in the west for 2010."
Dudes gonna get plenty of playing time as a freshman, and should be around to develop nicely.
WAY TO GO. MONTY AND STAFF!!!!!
"There were a handful of prospects who topped our watch list in Las Vegas less than two weeks ago, and one of those was the No. 81 ranked overall prospect in the country, Southern California big man Richard Solomon. A must see rising frontcourt big with terrific athleticism, Solomon, along with his close friend and future Price high school teammate Allen Crabbe, were quite the combo to follow on the AAU scene. After making his college decision tonight, Solomon and Crabbe will not only play their senior years together, but also in the Pac-10."
Whereas a moment ago we were dirt, now all of a sudden we have tremendous potential. If Monty can bring in one of the following bigs who are on Cal's radar, then we have a great class as two bigs can dominate together!
Terrence Jones, 6-7 PF of Portland
James Johnson, 6-8 C of San Diego
Alex Kirk, 6-11 C of New Mexico
Dwight Powell, 6-9 PF of Toronto
