Cathy and Susie O’Brien were both basketball stars during San Marcos High in a 1980s, both played in CIF championship games, both arrange in a tip 10 in territory story in career scoring average, both played Division we college basketball and both had sons who have as well.

Now both have sons who eliminated to San Diego State.

JJ O’Brien, Cathy’s son, began his career during Utah and spent his final 3 seasons during SDSU, finishing in 2015. And on Friday afternoon, Kameron Rooks, Susie’s son and JJ’s initial cousin, announced he is transferring from Cal to SDSU for his final season.

The 7-foot-1, 265-pound core from Mission Hills High is a fifth-year connoisseur send and, as such, authorised immediately.

Josh Davis (Tulane) and Valentine Izundu (Washington State). All were 6-8 or taller, and all started during slightest 9 games in their sole deteriorate on Montezuma Mesa.

He is a son of Sean Rooks, a Arizona star and 12-year NBA maestro who died of a heart conflict final June. His 6-1 sister, Khayla, will connoisseur from Mission Hills this month and will play during Washington

Mountain West, where experienced, learned 7-footers are a rarity.

One intensity square of material repairs might be SDSU’s scheduled diversion opposite Cal during Viejas Arena, a second in a three-game array that began final year in Sacramento and continues with dates on any other’s home floors over a subsequent dual seasons.

Usually, teams try to equivocate confronting former players. Last year, in fact, a Bears scrapped a diversion opposite Gonzaga after Jordan Mathews transferring there from Cal. The Aztecs finished adult being a beneficiary, stepping in to take over a home-and-home array with Zags, personification in Spokane final year and during Viejas Arena this season.

However, all indications so distant are that a 2017 diversion – Rooks would be left before a 2018 diversion during Cal – will go brazen as planned.

Kavell Bigby-Williams, a 6-10 post from Oregon, has finished visits to SDSU, Wichita State and Baylor and could announce a preference soon. If he transfers, he’d have to lay one year to play one. Another choice is to lapse to Oregon, where he could play his final dual years but sitting.

Vance Jackson, a 6-8 sharpshooting beginner wing from UConn, is scheduled to revisit over a weekend. The Aztecs recruited him out of St. John Bosco High in Bellflower and Prolific Prep in Northern California, nonetheless Washington is deliberate a favorite to get him.

SDSU is approaching to keep during slightest one grant in what has turn an increasingly flighty send market, not wanting to have a full register in box a actor becomes accessible in late summer or during a division break.
