Two Sports for Pickett?
Already one of the top corners in the West, El Cerrito (Calif.) four-star
cornerback Adarius Pickett may be able to play two sports in college.
“I haven’t decided if I’ll play baseball in college, but it’s a lot of fun and it could be an option,” said Pickett. “I’m 9-for-22 right now with six stolen bases and playing left field and center field. It’s something I’ll consider for college.”
Pickett attended Cal's Spring Game last Saturday and then this past week, was
back in Berkeley, this time to check out the Bears on the diamond.
“It’s good. I love playing baseball. I like the lights a lot. It reminds me of football season,”
Pickett told Ryan Gorcey of CalSportsDigest.com. “This is my first college baseball game that I’ve been to.
It was really good energy. The fan base here at Cal is really good."
With a top three of Arizona State, California and UCLA, Pickett has received the
blessing of each school to pursue both football and baseball at the next level.
Former Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral athlete Davonte' Neal, who was an
UnderArmour All-American and a Scout 100 selection in the 2012 class before
signing with Notre Dame, is headed back West. Neal was a returner for the
Irish this past season as a true freshman, part of their BCS National
Championship Game team. But earlier this week, Neal announced he was
leaving South Bend and heading back to the West Coast, and it's likely he's
headed to the Pac-12, with UCLA seemingly the favorite.
