Rabb not quite ready for commitment
It would have been a scene fit for something out of a Hollywood movie, but as it turned out 2015's No. 8 player Ivan Rabb wasn't quite ready to pull the trigger on a college commitment Saturday night.
The 6-foot-10 Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd power forward made a game-winning free throw with 0.8 seconds left in overtime to lift his team to a CIF Open Division State Title win over perennial power Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei on Saturday. The game was played on the campus of California at Haas Pavillion with Cuonzo Martin and the entire Golden Bears staff on hand to watch him play.
In the days leading up the title game, expectations built that Rabb could end his college recruitment after the game by announcing that he had chosen Cal over his other finalist Arizona. Instead, the five-star big man decided that he wasn't quite ready and that he wanted the focus to be on his team's accomplishment
"I was planning on making it today, but I'm not sure right now," Rabb told the assembled media, including SFGate.com, post game. "I don't want to rush into a decision. I think it's coming very soon, though. It still may be tonight, but I'm not sure. I just need to talk it over with my family."
Though he didn't author the storybook ending to his recruitment that Cal fans were hoping for after scoring 19 points and hauling in 21 rebounds in the title game, the Bears still appear to be the team to beat.
Up next for Rabb is an early Sunday morning flight to Chicago for this week's McDonald's All-American game activities and it would be a surprise if he doesn't announce a decision before the week is over.
