From the Cal release:
"Ahmaad has been committed to us for a long time and we are excited about him becoming a Golden Bear," Montgomery said. "He is a terrific young man with a great future. He will come in and help us with the departure of Justin Cobbs next season. Ahmaad is an unselfish player. He is a very good passer who also has the ability to make shots."
Rorie, a 6-2 guard out of Tacoma, Wash., transferred to Montverde Academy just outside of Orlando, Fla. for his final scholastic season after three standout years in Washington. He is a two-time Tacoma News-Tribune First Team All-Area selection, competing for Clover Park High School his first two seasons and Lincoln High School as a junior last season.
Rorie is rated the 13th best point guard in the 2014 class by ESPN.com. A four-star ranking by Scout.com, the recruiting service ranks the point guard 17th in the national at his position.
He guided Lincoln to a section title (Narrows 3A) and a third-place finish in the Class 3A state championships last season. An All-USA Washington Boy's Basketball team honorable mention selection by USA Today, Rorie averaged 21.0 points and 5.0 assists per contest as a junior. The guard was also a member of the Tacoma Weekly All-City Boys Basketball Team and an All-SPSL selection by the Seattle Times.
Rorie led Clover Park to the Class 2A state title and a fourth-place finish in the state tournament overall as a sophomore in 2011, averaging 33.7 points in the tournament, including a career-best 46-point performance against Ellensburg High School. Rorie averaged 16.7 points per game as a freshman on the Warriors' state championship squad.
He is also a standout on the Northwest Panthers AAU team in Washington.
Rorie will enroll at the University of California this fall and compete for the Golden Bears next season.
