Final Two For Fells

Darren Fells, a 6-6 power forward from Fullerton, Calif., has two Big West schools as his finalists...

Darren Fells, 6-6 SR PF Fullerton (Calif.) High, is a deceptive young post who has a chance to be a terrific player in a couple years. Fells plays football, as well as basketball, and his size and strength serve him well on the basketball court. He's very agile for his size and he's tough to stop in the low-post.

We spoke with Fells recently and asked if he's still considering playing football in college.

"No, I'm probably just going to play basketball," said Fells. "I'm going to choose between UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton."

We asked Fells about the factors he's considering in making the choice.

"The education, how I fit in -- how they run their offense -- and how I like the coaches," said Fells.

Fells told us that there's no leader between the two schools at this point. He plans on signing in the fall.
