Sleeper In The West

You won't find his name on many message boards around the Internet, but Rick Cardoso is on the radar for a number of programs in the west...

Rick Cardoso, 6-7 SR SF Fresno (Calif.) Central, is a long and mobile forward with a significant upside. He didn't play on a high-profile AAU team this summer and consequently didn't get seen by a lot of people.

But college coaches heard about him and several programs are expressing interest. We spoke with Cardoso recently and asked him about the schools that have been calling.

"Loyola Marymount, Irvine, Humboldt, Cal Poly, Long Beach State., Air Force and San Jose State," said Cardoso.

Cardoso hasn't arranged any official visits yet, but said Irvine, Loyola and Humboldt have all expressed interest in having him take a visit.

With schools only recently having discovered him, Cardoso said he may wait awhile before signing. "I'll most likely sign in the spring," said Cardoso.

He'll take the SAT in October and told us he has a 3.4 GPA.
