Kameron Rooks, the son of one-time Arizona big man Sean Rooks, tweeted Tuesday night that he has committed to Cal.
“I want to thank god that I’m able to announce that I’m committing to cal Berkeley GO BEARS!!!!!!!” Rooks posted on his twitter account.
Rooks, a three-star prospect according to Scout.com, is just under 7 feet and weighs 270.
He visited Cal and Arizona in recent weeks.
Rooks attends Mission Hills HS in San Marcos and will arrive at Cal next fall as part of a four-man class that features four-star wing Jabari Bird of Salesian-Richmond.
He’s not a ready-made star, but Rooks is the big man Cal coach Mike Montgomery covets.
Rooks’ father, Sean, played for Lute Olson at Arizona from 1988-89 through 1991-92 – and against Montgomery, coaching at Stanford at the time.
Sean Rooks averaged 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds, with 230 blocked shots. The Wildcats were 106-25 during that span, earning at least a share of three Pac-10 Conference titles.
