Head coach Doug Cornelius had four players missing from the Diablo Valley College Jamboree this past weekend and still walked away quite happy with his team's performance. Here is a rundown of the players not in attendance for the Yuba College 49ers over the weekend:
Royal Edwards: (SO) 6-foot-6 (190) from Sacramento, CA. Edwards averaged 10.7 ppg and 5.7 rebounds last season and shot 51% (114-220) from the floor. Edwards was not in attendance this weekend at DVC but has already received interest from Weber State-offered, Portland State-offered, Sacramento State-offered, Pacific, Minnesota, UNLV and UC Santa Barbara.
"Royal is silky smooth and can finish with both hands. He reminds me of George Gervin," said Cornelius.
Tristan Wilson: (FR) 6-foot-5 (205) from Phoenix, AZ. Wilson was a PROP 48 last season at Sacramento State
Sean Harris: (FR) 6-foot-7 (195) from Rocklin, CA.
Festus Ezeli: (FR) 6-foot-11 (245) from Africa. Ezeli greyshirted last year at Yuba and is currently playing on the AAU circuit with the Northern California Pharoahs. There is specualtion that Ezeli, who is an academic qualifier might, head to prep school in the fall or return to Yuba and play just one season for the 49ers.
