West Coast Recruiting News

The July evaluation period often leads to dramatic changes in player's recruitments. We have an update on the recruitments of the Wear twins, Renaldo Woolridge, Reggie Moore and a few other West Coast prospects...

David Wear and Travis Wear, 6-9 JR PF Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, had UCLA, North Carolina and Arizona coaches at all of their games in Las Vegas. Travis told me that their five schools are North Carolina, UCLA, Arizona, Stanford and Washington.

I asked him if he and his brother have a leader.

"No, all five schools have the same chance," said Wear. "We'll probably decide sometime next spring or summer."

Reggie Moore, 6-0 SR PG/SG Seattle (Wash.) Ranier Beach, put on a show in his final game in Las Vegas. Moore tried to lead his Seattle Rotary team back with a scintillating performance in the second half against Pump N Run, but he didn't get enough help and Rotary was defeated in the semifinal game of the Super 64.

Moore told me after the game that he's been hearing from Nevada, Santa Clara, Oregon and Oregon State. He said Santa Clara has offered a scholarship.

When I asked him which program has been recruiting him the hardest, Moore replied, "Santa Clara."

Moore said he hopes to make a decision before the school year. He said he has a 3.5 GPA.

Renaldo Woolridge, 6-8 SR PF North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake, told me that he's hearing from USC, Pepperdine, Arizona State, Boston College, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

When I asked if he has a leader, Woolridge replied, "Pepperdine, Arizona State and USC are probably the leaders."

Woolridge said he plans on making his decision in September.

Josh Lepley, 6-9 SR C/PF Reno (Nev.) Bishop Mongue, told me he's hearing from Santa Clara, UC Santa Barbara, Long Beach State, Sacramento State and Colorado State, along with a few others.

Colin Chieverton, 6-5 SR SF San Jose (Calif.) Mitty, told me he's been hearing from Marquette, Nevada, Pepperdine and Santa Clara.
