Two more names on the ever large college basketball transfer market have emerged with interest for the Golden Bears. They're not as high profile as some of the other names previously mentioned, but they could be potential contingency plans in case the early transfer targets don't pan out.
One is sophomore guard Jordan Cornish from UNLV. Cornish is considering Cal among a bunch of schools, but what really makes his name pop out is that he is a Cuonzo Martin commit back from his time at Tennessee. Cornish reopened his recruitment after Martin moved on over to Cal.

Cornish played about 21.6 minutes a game his sophomore year, shooting 35.4% from the field and 30.1% from three. Cornish averaged 6.2 points per game, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
The other is guard James Palmer from Miami. Palmer saw limited playing time at Miami his sophomore season, shooting 36.2% from the field and 26.7% from three point land, averaging 3.5 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.8 assists in 12.2 minutes of action. Palmer has Temple and Nebraska on top, but Cal is in consideration.
