Change is coming in high school basketball. Starting on Monday, players who had to sit out the first month of the season because of transfer rules become eligible. And there’s lots of teams who figure to benefit.
Anaheim Servite, which won the Katella tournament, is adding 6-foot-6 Cameron Griffin from Brethren Christian and 6-11 Jacob Hughes from Orange Lutheran. Griffin was an All-CIF player as a sophomore.
Santa Margarita is adding the Rasheed brothers from Mission Viejo, Kaden, a sophomore, and Noah, a junior. Both are impact players. St. John Bosco is adding guard Clayton Carfino from Australia.
Westchester is picking up 6-7 Keith Fisher, a transfer from Rancho Dominguez. Birmingham is adding two players from St. Genevieve. El Camino Real adds Agoura transfer Nick Heller.
Brentwood is adding 6-8 Nick Medavoy from Harvard-Westlake. Daniel Schreier, a 6-7 sophomore transfer from Harvard-Westlake, will join Santa Monica.
Maranatha picks up 6-8 Odera Nwobi.
The Huntington Park tournament this week will be a good opportunity to see how some of the new players fit in.
