    Wow, Any link or publication to substantiate this? The last Cal recruit to verbal this early dare I say was Julian Sensley. Any ideas as to why Rorie committed so early? He must have got tired of Romar sucking up to him everyday...

    LOL...if you read the title of the youtube that show his drives and jumpers it is from the EIGHT GRADE. Not sure when the dunking is. We got a get ;-)

    Because he is in the second tier of players? Because he likes his chances with top Washington talent enough to wait a year to get more film/observation on how he develops before allowing prospects to commit?

    No. It's too early. 2 years is a long time for HS kids. Romar is in a position to wait. WA and CA are both deep at the PG spot in 2014.

    Scout lists him as a 6' 0" shooting guard. Agree with others here that at height Monty is likely projecting him as a pg (or is somehow convinced he'll grow taller).

    We have thus far needed size above all else. This does not
    fill the bill.

    <sigh>. Lets look at this in respect to class balance.

    2012-2013 PG - Cobbs Jr; Wallance Fr
    2013-2014 PG Cobbs Sr; Wallace SO
    2014-2014 PG; Wallace Jr; Rorie FR


    Honestly that is just about PERFECT in respect to balance. Plus 2014 (SMIRK) isn't really over yet so I am sure there will be more to announce.

    Cal's guards aren't currently undersized, so I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    I would say that our greatest need this year was not size, but a guy who could have regularly broken down a defense off the dribble.

    Of course, a team is composed of many elements, and any good team is going to need size.

    However, for virtually all teams, having guys who can create off the dribble can compensate for a lot of other weaknesses. And, on the other hand, it takes a whole lot of compensating elements to make up for the absence guys who can create by themselves, when defenses have dug in and taken away options and the 35 second clock is ticking down.

    why do kids commit as sophomores? What's the point and how comfortable can you be to get a commitment from a non-local sophomore?

    How Comfortable?

    Probably more comfortable than not getting the commitment!

    Anyway, are college coaches and their staffs ever comfortable? Probably for a few hours after winning the NCAA tourney. After that, the pressure, to plan for next year and the years after that, returns and that is the end of comfortable...

    what if it is your "dream school"?

    you get the "offer of offers" and commit - why the hell wait?
