Where will Cuonzo Martin look to next?

USA TODAY Sports

Cal's 2014 basketball class is now an army of one. Idrissa Diallo reopened his recruitment soon after the hiring of Cuonzo Martin, and after a visit up to New England decided that the Boston College Eagles were the school of choice for him (you can read more on his commitment at BC Interruption). With Ryan Anderson transferring to Arizona, it became imperative to get a new big, and Boston College probably sold Diallo on the prospect of immediate playing time.

Ahmaad Rorie also decided that he needed a release from his letter of intent and is exploring several options in the Pac-12. Cal is looking for a replacement guard, and one potential option was another Martin Tennessee decommit in Larry Austin Jr., but he made his commitment to Xavier this weekend. More from our Xavier SB Nation site Banners in the Parkway on Austin's commitment to the Musketeers.

Cal's next option on the recruiting trail will be recently released Wake Forest recruit Shelton Mitchell. The Bears are expected to get a visit, along with Missouri, Oregon and Vanderbilt. The good news is that Mitchell was recruited heavily by former Vanderbilt assistant Yanni Hufnagel, who is now with Cal.

Cal's lone recruit for the 2014 class is a Martin flip. After Martin was named the man for the job in Berkeley, big man Kingsley Okoroh switched from Tennessee to Cal just about a day after committing to the Volunteers. Stephen Domingo also transferred from Georgetown and will be available for the 2015-16 season.
