Cuonzo Martin and the new Cal coaching staff were brought in partially to bring in solid recruiting talent, and it looks like they're starting to fulfill on that promise. They landed a huge commitment from Hayward (Ca.) Moreau Catholic High school junior guard Oscar Frayer.
Frayer is obviously a junior, so he will not start playing for the Bears until fall of 2016. He grew up a Cal fan and was ready to be a Bear pretty soon after he got the offer.
Here are some of his rankings from the various recruiting services.
- Rivals: Four stars, 66th best player overall
- 247Sports: Four stars (90), 97th in Top247 18th best small forward, 15th best in California
- ESPN: Three stars (70), 27th best small forward, 31st best in California
- Scout: Four stars, 11th best small forward, 45th player overall
His sophomore tape is ... what's the phrase ... brimming with potential.
As is common with mixes, they are heavy on dunks, blocks, threes, and not much of anything worthwhile with regards to shooting technique, running within set offenses, and everything of that sort. What we can say is that Frayer has the definite athletic talent and frame to be a D-1 player. With long arms and excellent leaping ability, he should have the ability to be a two-way player who fits what Martin wants out of his players.
