Tuesday's WAC news journey

Doug Benton's NorCalPreps article on Sunday's Nor Cal Clash event, which pitted the top 2013 talents against those in the 2014, contained these recruiting items:

* Rae Jackson, El Cerrito, 2013 guard (formerly of Rodriguez High in Fairfield) holds an offer from San Jose State University, among a number of potential destinations.

* Kendall Smith, Deer Valley, 2013 guard also has San Jose State University on his long list of colleges to check out. "He is going on an unofficial visit to San Jose State in the next week or two..."

* D'Erryl Williams, Sheldon High, 2013 combo guard, is exploring the possibilities of San Jose State University as well as a handful of other schools.


Thanks to Krimson Krazy for posting the link to the Kelsey Crooks memorial.


Kevin Cacabelos is out with his Top 25 Seattle basketball talents and Coach Cameron Dollar is naturally after some:

* D.J. Fenner (Delaware, Hawaii, Nevada, Seattle University, UC Irvine, Utah)

* Tucker Haymond (Idaho State, Montana State, Seattle University, Western Michigan)

Speaking of the Redhawks, Director of Athletic Communications Jason Behenna provided PTW with the information necessary to finally determine Coach Dollar's 2012 recruiting class and we thank him for it.

Neither Nkosi Ali nor Kentari Nettles signed with Seattle (as we had come across elsewhere) so here is the Redhawk roster for 2012-13:
