Cal basketball recruiting: Ira Lee has a top 3 of Cal, Arizona, Oregon

Can the Bears land one of their biggest recruiting targets?

Cuonzo Martin and the California Golden Bears have a few more holes they’d like to shore up in their recruiting class. One of them is finding a top-notch big man to pair up with transfer Marcus Lee. Could Ira Lee be their man?

Ira Lee keeps on cutting his list on a regular basis. A few months ago he cut his list to a top six, which included Cal. Last month he cut his list by one and put Cal in his top five.

Now it’s a list of three, and it’s a Pac-12 battle: The California Golden Bears, the Oregon Ducks, and the Arizona Wildcats. Lee will visit Cal this weekend (September 23), followed by Oregon (October 7) and then Arizona (October 14).

It’s safe to say Lee is the biggest target on the board left for the Bears to try and land. Literally. Lee is considered a top five big in the 2017 class.

Elsewhere, a few updates on a couple of Cal basketball recruiting targets.

  • Five star big man Wendell Carter Jr. eliminated Cal, listing a final four of Harvard, Duke, Georgia, and Georgia Tech.
  • Another Cal basketball big target—Brandon McCoy—is expected to release his top five in short order.
