Basketball: Cal makes offer to Washington prep

The high school coach of Tahoma HS (Wash.) senior Christian Behrens said Cal made a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-8 forward during his recruiting visit to Berkeley last weekend and he is considering his options while on a trip this week to visit his mother’s family in London.

“He said he had a good time,” coach Rob Morrow said. “He went to class with a couple guys, had the pre-game meal with the team (Thursday) and went out with a couple guys on Friday.

“They did offer him. He’ll decide when he gets back.”

Morrow declined to speak for Behrens, but said his other offers are to Seattle U, Eastern Washington and Portland State. Unless Washington steps forward with an offer in the meantime, sounds like Behrens could be headed to Berkeley.
