2018 Basketball Recruits & Targets get a ranking boost

Commits Jacobi and Matt move up in the rankings

NCAA Basketball: Oregon at California Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Cal Men’s Basketball got a boost this week, as evaluation sites updated their top 100 big boards. Cal commits and targets jumped significantly in their rankings. Cal currently has two commits in the 2018 recruiting class, but with a good amount of scholarships available in the class, the Bears will be going after some big time recruits. Let’s take a look into who we have and who we are after.

2018 Cal Commits:

2018 Cal Targets (Top 100 or Local):

  • PF Jordan Brown - #11 Overall on
  • SG Kevin Porter Jr. - #26 Overall on
  • SF Gerald Liddell - #34 Overall on
  • SG Jules Bernard - #52 Overall on
  • PF J’raan Brooks - #86 Overall on
  • SF Timmy Allen - #93 Overall on
  • SF Tevian Jones - #94 Overall on
  • C Bryan Penn-Johnson - #98 Overall on
  • PG Elijah Hardy - #21 Point Guard on
  • PG James Akinjo - Unranked 3-star on
  • SG Naseem Gaskin - Unranked 3-star on

Its an impressive list to say the least, with the majority of our offers out to wings and guards. Other than James Akinjo and Naseem Gaskin, every other player is currently listed as a 4-star prospect or higher. Getting the commitments of Jacobi Gordon and Matt Bradley was an early steal, but it will be important to use them as a platform to bring in more talent. It will definetly be easier to sell the highly touted talents to come in to come in with guys like Matt and Jacobi.

What do you think of our targets fans? Who should we focus our attention on? Let us know in the comments below.

California Love. California Rising.
