Looks like the Jays have secured another oral commitment for 2009-10. Andrew Bock, a point guard out of Eisenhower High School in Rialto, CA has committed to the Jays. Bock made an official visit to Creighton this past week. According to the ESPN recruiting notes on Bock in April they say “he has a solid first step and a tight crossover as well. He isn’t a blazer in the open court, but he’s very deceptive utilizing various speeds depending on the situation. ” They had him ranked as the #37 PG in the country. Another recruiting service called Full Court Press that scouts the “West’s HS and JC Hoops Scene” had Andrew ranked #8 in their Pre-Summer Class of 2009 rankings for PGs. Their comments on him were “Solid but not spectacular point guard makes heady plays but doesn’t have the size or the overall scoring skills to be more than a mid-major prospect. Good student” Either way, I see him probably with limited minutes or a redshirt season based on Cavel Witter and Antoine Young probably playing in front of him in the 2009-10 season, but we’ll see and I am sure Jays fans will track Andrew’s progress during his Senior season at Eisenhower.
I’m not really into the whole recruiting thing, so I don’t know much more about him what his stats are like or anything like that, but in reading things it sounds like he improved his stock quite a bit over the summer at some camps and has sort of popped up out of nowhere under the radar. Andrew was an all All-CIF 1st team selection in the Division 2AA and helped his team win their league title last season. The people that follow the recruiting over at the ‘Cafe are usually pretty up on who the Jays are targeting, but Andrew wasn’t really talked about until early last week. There appears to be one scholarship left for 2009-10 and hopefully there will be a big man targeted.
Here’s a video to watch his highlights from last season.
