On the heels of the first open evaluation period of the month of July, California received some good news regarding its 2017 recruiting class. Monday it was reported by Scout.com that 6-foot-4 guard Juhwan Harris-Dyson verbally committed to Cal, becoming the third member of the the Golden Bears’ 2017 recruiting class.
Harris-Dyson, who attends Heritage Christian School in Northridge, California and plays his grassroots basketball for the Earl Watson Elite program, joins grassroots teammate Jemarl Baker and Alec Hickman in the 2017 recruiting class for Cal. Also playing with Harris-Dyson and Baker on that Earl Watson Elite team is highly regarded power forward Ira Lee, who is another of Cal’s recruiting targets in the 2017 class.
With Cal due to lose multiple key contributors on the perimeter at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, including Jabari Bird and Sam Singer, adding options was a point of emphasis for Cuonzo Martin and his staff when it came to the 2017 recruiting class.
Harris-Dyson, who has the ability to play either wing position, will help in that regard. This past weekend Harris-Dyson received high praise for his play at the Elite 100 Camp in Claremont, California, with Martin and associate head coach Tracy Webster both in attendance for his games. California still has room for more additions, especially in the front court with their pursuit of Ira Lee, and they’ll also have Kentucky transfer Marcus Lee available for the 2017-18 campaign.
