Boys’ basketball: Waiting for eighth-grader Cassius Stanley


The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can’t say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley.

“He’s the best eighth-grade athlete I’ve seen,” football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said.

Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball.


The big question is whether he’ll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school.

He’s in Sacramento cheering on the girls’ basketball team to an expected Division IV state title.
