Oakland High point guard T.J. Taylor, who originally committed to Santa Clara before his sophomore season, is now heading to UC Santa Barbara. Taylor decommited from Santa Clara during his junior season in a move designed to open up his options again. The 5-9, 155-pound Taylor confirmed late Tuesday that he’s now given his verbal committment to the Gauchos. Taylor was the Oakland Athletic League MVP and a second-team All-East Bay pick last season after averaging 18.6 points per game.

I just spoke to Matt Williams, the organizer for the Holiday Classic All-Star Football game that will pit the stars of the East Bay against the Sacramento area stars.

Well, the game is back on for this year and scheduled for the same date of December 26, which falls on a Sunday this year.
