Colton High School will be hosting a recruiting seminar titled “The Realities of College Recruiting” Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the school auditorium open to high school athletes and their parents. The seminar, presented by Jack Renkens, will hit on the methodology of college recruiters, NCAA Clearinghouse Guidelines and the best way to present yourself to colleges.

The Citrus Belt Area will vote for and announce its releaguing for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons May 2 after an 8:30 a.m. meeting at Riverside Norte Vista High School. As expected, rumors are flying about possible shifts, with several prominent county schools possibly being impacted.
Possibilities that are being put out there through discussions with sources include Cajon moving from the San Andreas to the Citrus Belt League to replace Fontana, which would join fellow Fontana Unified School District schools Summit and Kaiser in the Sunkist League. The Sunkist would be a FUSD-Colton Joint Unified School District league, with Colton and the new Grand Terrace school joining Bloomington.
The Riverside County schools in the Sunkist — Jurupa Valley, Patriot and Norte Vista — would likely be placed in Riverside County-contained leagues. There might be a jumbling of schools in Riverside County, as schools such as Riverside North and Riverside Poly are supposedly asking for relief from the ultra-competitive Big VIII League. That relief, if granted, could cause a shuffling of schools or even the formation of another league.
Obviously these situations are rumor at this point and will be revealed and voted on in a couple weeks, but I thought it’d be fun to see what people think about such proposed changes.
Rialto’s do-everything forward Brittani Walker will sign with La Sierra University in a ceremony in the Rialto High School Gymnasium according to a phone call I received from Knights coach Michael Anderson. Walker, who was the glue do Rialto’s CIF-SS championship and CIF-State runner-up team, averaged 8.4 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.1 steals this past season.
