This major haul could be considered one of the most important recruiting hauls for the men’s basketball program. Despite the pandemic, coach Steve Becker and company helped bring promising transfers and prominent high school talent into the team. 

This year has been challenging for many schools when it comes to recruiting. For the California State University, Dominguez Hills men’s basketball team, it is no different. Coming off not having a season last year, the men’s basketball team decided to ramp things up to get another large haul of recruits, announced in late August. 

As CSUDH basketball assistant coach, Tim Anderson explained how excited he is for getting this large amount of talent this year in recruiting.  

“We are very excited to be back playing. We are very excited about the guys we brought in. Those guys are a breath of fresh air for us,” said assistant coach Anderson. 

​​

The recruits came from all over the country. Some players came for one last ride to play the game they love, while others will get their first taste of what it feels like to play on a college court. Which all could be the cause of something great for the CSUDH men’s basketball team. 

This year’s recruiting group included transfers Andre Ball (Pepperdine), Jace Bass  (Louisiana Tech), D’Mauria Jones (Oral Roberts), Hunter Seymour (Portland), and Sam Sparks (Tarleton State). This, along with incoming freshmen Zion Sutton (Westchester High School) and Brandon Richard (Windward High School). 

“I feel like CSUDH is some (place) where I can call home, right down the street as well,” […] “We are trying to make it a winning program, really, so I am super excited to be here as a transfer. We want to turn this program around,” said Jace Bass, a junior transfer from Louisiana Tech. 

“We are getting it going early. I feel like it’s going to come around, and when it comes around, it’s going to hit hard,” said Bass. “We are going to start from the jump, have a big season, and really put a banner up (t)here.”

Fellow transfer, junior forward/guard, Hunter Seymour, states how focused the team is and how ready they are this upcoming season. 

“I think we are going to be really good just because everyone is focused. Everyone got the same plans, the same vision for what we can be, and everyone is disciplined and ready to work for it,” said Seymour. 

This year includes many Division 1 transfers, which many see as being very promising. With young freshmen newcomers going into the team along with returning veterans, the season is set to be an interesting one after not playing for over a year. The team starts off their season with a game against UC Irvine on Nov. 5.
