Cal Men's Basketball Lands Cornell Transfer

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

6'6 SF Dwight Tarwater has been accepted to Cal for grad school and will be eligible immediately.

Named Div-IIA Mr. Basketball when playing for Webb High school, Tarwater played sparing during his first three years at Cornell.  As a senior co-captain, he posted a career high in points (7.1ppg) and was one of the Ivy League's leading rebounders at 5.5 rpg.

Although he has the ability to step out and hit the outside shot, the percentages (36.9 FG%, 31.9 3FG%) suggest that long-range shooting isn't his strong suit.

I'd imagine that his value goes beyond the stat sheet and is a great fit for Cal's shorthanded roster.  You're getting a smart, tough, veteran player who can back up both the 3 and the 4 spot.  Rebounding is a skill that translates very well and we'll be in dire need of it considering our lack of bigs.  He'll be a good steadying influence should our young wings start playing out of control or get themselves into foul trouble.  It's a nice pick-up for Coach Martin and his staff.

Although there weren't any specific highlights to be found, he did score a career high 23 points against Dartmouth and was featured in their highlight film.

Welcome to Cal, Dwight!
