Wednesday night was a busy one for Cal basketball, as their 2015 recruiting class looks drastically different this morning from what it looked like 24 hours ago.
It started with three-star forward Roman Davis committing to play for the Golden Bears this season, a move that caused Davon Dillard — who had yet to sign with Cuonzo Martin’s coaching staff — to decommit from the Berkeley school. Dillard is now headed to Oklahoma State.
Then late on Wednesday, the school announced that Tyson Jolly would not be enrolling at the university this summer. Jolly, the No. 73 player in the class, according to Rivals, will instead attend prep school for the 2015-16 season. He’s still committed to Cal for the Class of 2016, per Scout.com.
Losing Jolly and Dillard is a blow for the Bears, but those aren’t the most important members of their recruiting class. Ivan Raab and Jaylen Brown, two top ten prospects, are. And with Jabari Bird, Jordan Mathews and Ty Wallace all returning to school, Martin still has a roster that will be ranked in the preseason top 25 and should end up competing for a spot at or near the top of the Pac-12.
