Eighth NorCal Clash on tap Sunday at Contra Costa

SAN PABLO, Ca. – Many of the very best high school hoopers from the Northern California Classes of 2018 and ’19 will be on display Sunday afternoon (3 o’clock) at Contra Costa College.

The eighth NorCal Clash, under the direction of Gerry Freitas, is highlighted by a 2018 squad that is scheduled to include many of the better guards in the West.

Among those are James Akinjo (Richmond Salesian), J.R. Ballard (Modesto Christian; he transferred this summer from Manteca Lanthrop), Zach Chappell (Sacramento Capital Christian), Elijah Hardy (Oakland Bishop O’Dowd), Logan Johnson (Mountain View St. Francis) and Jake Wojcik (San Jose Bellarmine Prep).

Johnson, the brother of the Miami Heat’s Tyler Johnson, trimmed his potential college choices Friday to Cincinnati, Saint Mary’s, UCLA and UC Santa Barbara.

Included on the 2019 roster is 6-foot-7 Prince Gilliam (Fresno High).

Contra Costa is located at 2600 Mission Bell Drive in San Pablo.

Meet Frank
Frank Burlison

Frank Burlison is a well-regarded basketball writer who was inducted into the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Hall of Fame in 2005. His opinions on the potential of high school and college players are widely respected and sought by college coaches and NBA scouts, personnel directors and general managers from coast to coast. Oh, yes – he can offer plenty of thoughts on movies, television and pop music. Yes, he can rank those, too. Hint: He’s a big The Godfather, Larry Sanders, The Wire and The Beatles loyalist.

“I’ve known Frank since he was a student at Long Beach State and no writer ever worked harder at studying and understanding basketball. When I was coaching I always put more stock into what he said about (high school) players than anyone I knew. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the best there is at evaluating the potential of basketball players.”
Lute Olson, Hall of Fame and NCAA Championship Winning Coach

"I have known Frank for 15 years and there is no one outside of those in the Clippers' organization that I trust more than Frank when it comes to player evaluations."
Neil Olshey, Portland Trail Blazers' General Manager

“Frank Burlison has always been a proponent of my talent and, even more so, of my potential – far before it was evident to most. Even as a smaller and determined player who was being overlooked by most high-major colleges and national scouting services, Frank always served as a friendly voice who got me into the door to most events to help me prove my talents.”
Russell Westbrook, the No. 4 overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft out of UCLA and an all-star guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder
