Derek Stockalper Makes Commitment

Derek Stockalper, a terrific 6-5 shooting guard from San Diego, has made a decision and given a commitment. Stockalper, the subject of an intense recruiting battle, will be playing on the West Coast next year.

Derek Stockalper, 6-5 SG Carlsbad (Calif.) High, has committed to Brad Holland and the University of San Diego, according to Derek's father. This is the second big commitment for Holland, coming on the heels of the decision by point guard Travis Smith to join the Toreros.

We just got off the phone with Dan Stockalper and he told us that Derek felt San Diego represented the best fit for him, taking into account the academics, the coaching staff, the proximity to home and the weather.

Stockalper was recruited by schools across the country, with the other finalists being Gonzaga, Pepperdine, San Diego St., Utah and Loyola Marymount.
