Cal Adds Two Signees In 2023 Class
BERKELEY – California men's basketball head coach Mark Fox announced Wednesday that prep standouts Rodney Brown and Devin Curtis have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Golden Bears next season. The duo will join Cal ahead of the 2023-24 campaign.
Brown is a 6-foot-6 combo guard from Perris, Calif. As a junior at Rancho Christian School (Temecula, Calif.) in 2021-22, Brown averaged 19.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He additionally averaged 12.3 PPG for the Eagles as a sophomore.
"Rodney is a skilled, versatile scoring guard who can also handle the point guard position," Fox said. "He's a very good perimeter shooter but is comfortable in his ability to make plays for teammates. He'll make us better as soon as he steps onto campus."
Curtis, who hails from Northridge, Calif., will play his senior year at Southern California Academy (Los Angeles) after previous stops at Heritage Christian School and Ribet Academy. The 6-foot-11, 210-pound forward averaged 4.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game as a junior to help lead Heritage Christian to a 22-5 overall record and the second round of the 2022 CIF Southern Section Championships.
"Devin is a physical presence on the floor with great size and length," Fox said. "He's skilled as both a shooter and passer and has the ability to alter and block shots on the defensive end. His high basketball IQ and feel for the game give him the ability to be a difference maker for us."
