Erica McCall commits to Stanford

In a ceremony at the high school where she has rewritten the girls’ basketball record book and with the mayor of Bakersfield, Calif. among the interested parties, Erica McCall announced that she was committing to Stanford over a list of schools including UConn according to a tweet from the Bakersfield Californian newspaper.

UConn was the only non-California school in her final list as she was also considering Stanford, UCLA and Cal State Bakersfield (where her father is the head coach).

McCall’s basketball bloodlines don’t stop with her father. McCall’s older sister is WNBA star DeWanna Bonner of the Phoenix Mercury who was the WNBA’s second-leading scorer during the 2012 season.
Before a Sep. 7 game against the Connecticut Sun, Bonner spoke about the role she played in her sister’s decision-making process.

“We don't talk as much as we should but I try to give her as much advice as I could,” Bonner said. “She is enjoying it, what teenager wouldn't enjoy this kind of attention and she deserves it. She is taking it all in, taking it day by day.”

McCall had seven triple-doubles including four in a row during her junior season at Ridgeview High when she averaged 25.8 points, 16.7 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 8.4 blocks per game. She owns Ridgeview’s career records with 1,876 points, 1,391 rebounds and 672 blocked shots.

McCall was a member of the United States team which won the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship and averaged 3.8 points and 4 rebounds as the U.S. won the FIBA U17 World Championship in August.
