New Cal coach Cuonzo Martin has secured a verbal commitment from a 5-foot-9 point guard to go with the 7-foot-1 center he landed several weeks ago.
Brandon Chauca, a left-hander from Shannon Forest Christian School in Greenville, S.C., announced Friday he will join the Bears next fall. Earlier, center Kinglsey Okoroh signed with the Bears.
Because the spring signing period is over, Chauca signed a financial aid agreement but not a letter-of-intent.
A native of Alexandria, Va., Chauca averaged 23.1 points, 7.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 3.7 steals last season.
The left-hander will provide depth at point guard, where Justin Cobbs departs and Sam Singer and Tyrone Wallace are expected to duel for the starting job.
Chauca picked Cal over Washington State, and also drew interest from Missouri and Virginia Tech.
Cal now has 11 scholarship players committed for next season. Here’s the breakdown:
Seniors (1): F David Kravish
Juniors (3): G Tyrone Wallace, F Christian Behens, G/F Stephen Domingo*
Sophomores (5): G Jabari Bird, G Sam Singer, G Jordan Mathews, C Kameron Rooks, F Roger Moute a Bidias
Freshmen (2): C Kingsley Okoroh, G Brandon Chauca
* Must sit out 2014-15 season as transfer from Georgetown.
