Rancho Christian School’s Evan Mobley, the No. 1 ranked high school basketball player in the country, on Tuesday, Nov. 12 signed his national letter of intent to play basketball at Southern California.
His Eagles running mate, combo guard Dominick Harris, also signed on the dotted line, committing to play for the University of Gonzaga next fall.
Mobley, the 7-foot, 210-pound forward averaged 19.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 blocks last season for Rancho and earned gold medals playing for USA Basketball at this year’s FIBA U19 World Cup and last year’s FIBA U17 World Cup.
Trojans coach Andy Enfield said Wednesday that Mobley is “an incredible basketball talent who can dominate on the defensive end with his length and athleticism and on the offensive end with his tremendous skill set.”
Harris committed to the Zags way back in his sophomore year while at Pacifica Christian in Santa Monica before transferring to Rancho Christian.
According to 247sports.com, Harris ranks as the 50th best player in the nation and reportedly had 11 scholarship offers including UCLA, USC, Florida State, and North Carolina.
Mobley will join his older brother Isaiah with the Trojans as well as his father, Eric, who is an assistant coach at Southern California.
