    Devin Curtis, the 6-foot-11 three-star big man from Southern California Academy, has committed to Cal-Berkeley, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    “What made me choose Cal was I felt like it was the best fit for me of being a high-academic school and a program looking to win,” he said. “And I felt like they needed and wanted me being one of the guys to really help them change the program around.

    “I would love to just dog it out for a season and prove to the basketball community.

    “I will bring my versatility as a big that can stretch the floor, play inside and out, run the floor hard, grab rebounds and have the IQ to run plays and pick apart the defense. I would love to get in the film session with coach [Mark] Fox to help improve my skillset as well.”

    Said Southern California Academy coach Julius Von Hanzlik:

    “His body is continuing to develop as well as his skills. He can pick-and-pop some as well as catch in the post make plays.”

    Curtis joins shooting guard Rodney Brown in Cal’s 2023 class.
