Remember that top 25 Cal basketball recruiting class I told you about six or so months ago? Well, here's your best chance to see them performing all in one place. These Bears show off their skills not only on the court, but off it as well.

Four members of Cal's incoming class of men's basketball recruits - Gary Franklin, Richard Solomon, Allen Crabbe and Alex Rossi - have been invited to play in the second annual High School Academic All-America Classic on Saturday at the Felix Events Center on the campus of Azusa Pacific University.

Gary Franklin, Richard Solomon and Allen Crabbe will be members of the American All-Stars coached by Michael Lynch of Price High School, while Alex Rossi will be on the National All-Stars coached by De La Salle's Frank Alloco.

With the four players, Cal has more recruits in the game than any other university in the country.

Crabbe (#23), Solomon (#13) and Franklin (#4) will all play for the American All-Stars (coached by Crabbe and Solomon's coach from Price, Michael Lynch) & Rossi (#15) for the Nationals.

Omondi Amoke's dismissal from the team means these guys aren't just the future of Cal basketball; they could all feature heavily on this Bears team right now. Here's our best chance to see what they can do before they hit the Berkeley campus up. Enjoy the game!
