Basketball: PG Chauca officially signs

Cal announced the official signing of point guard prospect Brandon Chauca to a national letter of intent.

“We are excited for the opportunity to have Brandon join the Cal Family,” new Cal coach Cuonzo Martin said. “He has the ability to distribute and score the basketball. In high school, he displayed excellent range with his shot. Brandon also has the foot speed to be a good on-ball defender.”

Chauca averaged 23.1 points, 7.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 3.7 steals this season for 22 Feet Academy at Shannon Forest Christian Schhool in Greenville, S.C. The 5-foot-9 native of Alexandria, Virginia, had a pair of 40-point games.

Chauca played his freshman year at Stonewall Jackson High in Manassas, Va. where he was an all-district selection in his first scholastic season. Chauca also played one season at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, N.J., and at Christian Faith Center Academy in Creedmoor, N.C., before enrolling at 22 Feet Academy.
