Stephen Zimmerman was one of the prospects Cal watched over the weekend at the Peach Jam, and according to Rivals’ TJ Walker, Zimmerman gave Cal a little test on Wednesday night. If you recall, Cal was at the ESPYS that night, and once Zimmerman saw him on TV, he texted Cal to see if Cal would check his phone during the show. He did.
“I saw him at the ESPYs last night and I texted him to see if he would reply to me and he did, so that was pretty cool,” Zimmerman said. “I wanted to see him pick up his phone on TV because I saw him sitting behind a couple people. I was too slow though, but he replied to me, so that was pretty cool.”
Cal flew in to watch Zimmerman and other top prospects the next morning, which the 2015 big man said was “big” considering he was in LA the night before (according to Matt, Jaylen Brown was also impressed with Cal’s jet-setting recruiting style).
Zimmerman just cut Louisville from his list, and plans to visit Kentucky on October 17 for Big Blue Madness. He’s also taking official visits to North Carolina on October 3 and Kansas on October 10. Head on over to Rivals to read more of his quotes about the Cats.
