Basketball: Kravish signs on dotted line

As expected, Cal received a letter of intent Wednesday from 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward David Kravish of Lee’s Summit HS in suburban Kansas City, Mo.

Here’s what Mike Montgomery had to say:

“David is a slightly built big man with a very good skill set and understanding of the game. We saw David in the summer. We thought he was a good shot blocker with good timing, a good jump hook and overall good skills. We got pretty excited about him and pursued him pretty hard.

“He’s a very bright kid that intends on becoming a pre-med major, and he actually has a chance to be a doctor. He’s a serious-minded student with great upside that comes in here with a great attitude. He’s very excited to be a part of the program and we’re excited about having him, as well.”

The Bears are not expected to sign anyone else this fall, but have two scholarships to give in the spring.
