The commitments keep coming for the Cal men’s basketball team.
On the heels of five-star shooting guard Jabari Bird’s commitment last week, Jordan Mathews has verbally committed to play for the Bears. Mathews, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard from Santa Monica Calif., is ESPN’s No. 70 player and No. 33 at his position. He received four stars from Rivals and three from ESPN.
Mathews, who chose Cal over Kansas State, Marquette, Colorado and Wake Forest, called the decision “a no-brainer.”
Like Bird, Matthews will try to convince his AAU teammates to join him in Berkeley. Three-star power forward Torren Jones and five-star power forward Marcus Lee are both possibilities.
All commitments are non-binding, of course. The early signing period begins Nov. 14.
