Many kids like to stay close to home for college. Sam Singer is going about as far away as he possibly can.
Tuesday afternoon, multiple sources close to the Miami (Fla.) Ransom Everglades product confirmed that he has given a commitment to Mike Montgomery and California.
A 6-foot-3 guard who rates as a three-star prospect, Singer is a versatile player and should be able to wear a variety of hats for the Golden Bears.
Singer is a smart player who has put in the time in the weight room. So, he'll be ready to think the college game and be able to adjust to the different level of physicality as soon as he arrives on campus.
Depending on how you want to play, Singer can play either the point or shooting guard. As a point he takes good care of the ball, makes good decisions and defenders have to respect that he's a dangerous jump shooter.
If he plays off the ball, Singer's ability to shoot from deep is the first thing that stands out. But, with him over off the ball you get a high level secondary ball handler and somebody who can help open up more angles and avenues of attack because of his ability to see the floor and move the ball.
Singer is the Golden Bears third commitment from the class of 2013. He joins five-star Jabari Bird and four-star Jordan Mathews to give the Cal a terrific trio of perimeter players.
