Foothill senior basketball player Michael Bryson will sign an NCAA letter of intent with UC Santa Barbara, reports Mustangs coach Drew Hibbs.
"Mike is 6-foot-5 and plays point to post in our system," Hibbs said in an e-mail. "He will be one of the top players in the area this year and was heavily recruited.
"But he made a tight connection with UCSB coach Bob Williams and the current Gaucho players. He and his family believe UCSB is the right fit."
Williams is the former UC Davis men's basketball coach.
Bryson averaged a team-leading 14.4 points for the Mustangs last season.
Two other area athletes also announced signings:
St. Francis golfer Ashley Noda will play on scholarship for Santa Clara.
Pleasant Grove's Jessie Sisler will compete in gymnastics for Arizona. She competes for Technique Gymnastics in Rancho Cordova.
