California forward Justin Hawkins, a rangy 6'6 junior, is looking hard at Skip Prosser and the Wake Forest University basketball program. And, because of Hawkins' great jumper and ballhandling skills, the Deacs are looking right back.
Averaging right at 17 points and ten boards per contest to go along with five assists and two steals a game, Hawkins had a great junior season that brought about the attention he is receiving today.
Currently, Hawkins has a top five of Arizona, Oregon, Southern Cal, Wake Forest and Connecticut, according to Tracy Pierson, TheInsiders' affiliate at PrepWestHoops.
Arizona is said to be his leader early in the process. Stay tuned to DeaconSports for more on Hawkins in the coming weeks.
