Geoffrey Clayton, the Magnolia guard who averaged 24 points per game last year before leaving school because he was behind academically, has transferred to Fremont High for his senior year, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
The 6-foot-3 scoring machine would seem to be a perfect fit for the Pathfinders, who graduated high-scoring combo guard Kenton Paulino. If Clayton gains his eligibility, something that won't be determined until first semester report cards are released Oct. 29 according to the Times article, he could team with super-athlete Mark Bradford to form a potent scoring combination.
Clayton wasn't the only basketball loss Magnolia suffered. On May 1, one hour after learning that Clayton would not return to the school, head basketball coach Al Walin announced his resignation. In 27 seasons, the 62-year-old coach had a career record of 401-380.
