COACH KEATING ON JARED:
"We are extremely excited to add someone of Jared's caliber, but more important Jared's character. He is someone we targeted very early on and we are excited to add a player of high caliber that plays at such a high level. He comes well-prepared having been coached by a former college coach, Steve Weemer, and also having been involved in a highly successful AAU program with the Illinois Wolves led by Mike Mullins."
WHY SANTA CLARA?:
