OAKLAND, Calif. -- Richmond (Calif.) Salesian stayed far away from Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds corner Bomani Bassette on Friday, only throwing the ball his way four times, with just one ball being caught.
“One was curl, and another I forced him out of bounds,” said Bassette, who tallied two tackles, one pass break-up and one quick force-out on a screen he jumped, locking down his side of the field as the Warriors polished off a 32-22 win over the visiting Pride.
Bassette committed to San Jose State about a week ago, choosing the Spartans after visiting their summer camp, and over offers from Montana State and Sacramento State. There are some schools that are still poking around, but Bassette considers his commitment a “solid verbal.”
“I just decided that I like it. It was fun, I liked the camp, I like the stadium, I like the coaches,” Bassette said. “It’s close to home, and other than that, I have a strong relationship with the coaches, and they’ve taught me a lot.”
Bassette was physical in coverage, and showed very good flexibility in flipping his hips to keep stride with the Salesian receivers. The most impressive part of Bassette’s game is how quickly and how strongly he breaks on balls. He also jams well at the line, and even though coaches had him giving a big cushion, his receivers never got clean looks at the ball, and never got under him or behind him. If the Spartans can hang on to Bassette, he’ll be a steal.
