CLICK HERE for earlier 2016 Recruiting Coverage from USCHoops.com


Freshmen:

De’Anthony Melton
Class: 2020
Pos.: Combo Guard
High School: Crespi High School
Ht.: 6’3″
Wt.: 180 lbs
Comparison: Kris Dunn (Providence)
HS Rating: 3-Star / Top 200 
Story: Melton has a reputation as an elite athlete and defensive stopper on the perimeter.  Right now his skill set still needs to develop to get him where he needs to be at the Pac-12 level.  The hope is that Melton will eventually develop into a Gary Payton II type player.

 

Jonah Mathews
Class: 2020
Pos.: Shooting Guard
High School: Santa Monica High School
Ht.: 6’2″
Wt.: 175 lbs.
Comp.: Jordan Mathews
HS Rating: 4-Star/Top 80
Story: Jonah is the younger brother of Cal sharp shooter Jordan Mathews.  By all accounts, Jonah is ahead of his brother at the same stage.  At this point, Jonah’s skill set basically translates to a jumper shooter.  He’ll need to develop his dribble-drive game to be an all-around Pac-12 player. 

 

 

Harrison Henderson
Class: Freshman
Pos.: Power Forward (Stretch Four)
High School: South Grand Prairie (TX)
Ht.: 6’9″
Wt.: 200 lbs.
HS Rating: 3-Star/Top 200
Story: Henderson is an athletic and skilled stretch-4 who moves like a small forward. Henderson can run the court, finish at the rim and his outside shots.  The question for him is going to be strength and whether he’ll be able to defend Pac-12 level big men and rebound at the Pac-12 level. He sometimes finds himself drifting around the perimeter. The hope is that Henderson can develop into a Paul George type player.
