California prep player intends to play for UH hoops

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Aaron Valdes, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound wing player at La Jolla Prep (Calif.), said he intends to commit to play for the Hawaii men’s basketball team for the 2012-13 season.

However, his recruitment process is in the early going and much could happen before he is theoretically admitted to UH, a source indicated.

Several recruiting outlets picked up on his commitment via twitter, but that information was premature.

Valdes did, however, confirm his intent in a message on Sunday.

Valdes was also a water polo standout at La Serna High prior to La Jolla Prep. He has four years of eligibility. He averaged about 19.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and three steals per game at La Jolla, his prep coach Gary Trousdale said.
