New coach Mark Fox would love to have Justice Sueing and Connor Vanover on his first Cal basketball team next season.
But he acknowledges their right to check out other schools through the NCAA transfer portal. Hear what he had to say about the situation in the video above.
Fox said the coaching staff has had good conversations with both players and their families, and that Sueing and Vanover have continued to participate with the team, even while exploring options.
“I’m not pressuring those kids. Justice and Connor are great young men from great families,” he said. “I would hope we’ll come to a resolution sometime soon.”
Sueing led the Bears in scoring and rebounding as a sophomore last season while the 7-foot-4 Vanover came on strong late in his freshman season, showing an ability to block shots and shoot from the perimeter.
