Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins got a major commitment Monday night when wing Anthony Brown of Ocean View HS of Huntington Beach chose the Cardinal over Cal and UCLA. The 6-foot-6 small forward/shooting guard is ranked as the No. 41 overall prospect in the Class of 2010 by Scout.com and No. 62 by Rivals.com.
“They all led at one point or another,” Brown told Scout.com. “I would say after each visit … I felt I was going to UCLA. Then I went to Cal and said I could go there. Everyday it would change.”
Brown said Dawkins convinced him Stanford is on the cusp of starting something good. “If we get this right, we can be Pac-10 champions and NCAA champions in a few years,” Brown told the Web site.
Cal coach Mike Montgomery, who is hoping to sign four players during next month’s fall letter-of-intent period, already has oral commitments from three prospects: shooting guard Allen Crabbe of Price HS in Los Angeles, small forward Alex Rossi of New Trier HS in Winnetka, Ill., and power forward Richard Solomon of Price HS in Los Angeles.
