Pomare Gets Attention

Gyno Pomare, a 6-7 senior power forward from Oceanside (Calif.), had a solid spring and several schools have taken notice....

Gyno Pomare, 6-7 SR PF Oceanside (Calif.) El Camino, is a long and agile post with a nice upside. A good shot blocker and rebounder, Pomare is still developing his game at the offensive end. But he's improved considerably in the last year and could be on a number of school's lists by the end of July.

We spoke with Pomare yesterday and asked about the schools he's considering. "I'm wide open," said Pomare. "But I've been hearing a lot from USF, San Diego and Rice." Pomare said all three schools have offered a scholarship.

Pomare took an unofficial visit to San Diego a couple weeks ago. "I like what I heard," said Pomare. "My parents did also."

Pomare said his parents would prefer that he stay close, but he has no problem with leaving home. "That (distance) won't be a factor," said Pomare. "My parents would like to see me play, but they said it's up to me."

When questioned about factors that would influence his choice, Pomare replied, "I'd like to go somewhere with warm weather. Playing time won't be that big a deal. I'd like to get some time, but I don't expect to start as a freshman or anything like that."

Pomare told us that he has a 3.1 GPA and scored 900 on the SAT.
