California Golden Bears: Mark Fox Biggest challenge: Finding an identity. It's going to be a total rebuild for Fox at California. The Golden Bears are coming off a 16-47 record over the past two seasons under Wyking Jones, totaling five Pac-12 wins in that time. So how will Fox turn this thing around? Cuonzo Martin found short-term success by landing elite recruits, but that petered out fairly quickly, and he left for Missouri. Will Fox be able to compete for the West Coast's top recruits? It's unlikely to happen overnight, so he will have to go about things in a different way.
Early returns: Fox was dealt a tough hand right away, when top scorers Justice Sueing and Darius McNeill transferred out, followed by shooting big man Connor Vanover. The Golden Bears had to replace some of the outgoing talent, and went out and landed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi graduate transfer Kareem South. They also made the final six for five-star 2020 big man Walker Kessler and remain on the list of top-10 prospect Scottie Barnes. volsteamstore.com Admiral Schofield Jersey Allan Houston Jersey
