Chris McNealy, the 2010 Northern California Player of the Year at San Ramon Valley High, has signed a written offer of financial aid and will join the UC Irvine men's basketball program, Anteaters' Coach Russell Turner announced Thursday.
McNealy, a 6-4 combo guard, led his Danville-based school to a 28-4 record and a trip to the CIF North Coast Section semifinals as a senior.
"I am excited to announce the signing of Chris McNealy," Turner said in a statement. "He is a winner both on and off the court and is the type of player I hope to attract to UCI. He is versatile and smart and plays at a high level on both ends of the court. I really like the fact that Chris comes from a basketball family, and I think he is a perfect fit for the up-tempo style of play I want to implement.
