Former Del Oro star Aaron Hendricks to walk on at Pacific

Former Del Oro High School boys basketball standout Aaron Hendricks will play at Pacific as a preferred walk-on.


The 6-foot-2 guard played three seasons at Del Oro before transferring to New Hampton School in New Hampton, N.H., where he will finish a post-graduate year at the end of May.

Hendricks elected to transfer to New Hampton to improve academically and play in the high-level New England Preparatory School Athletic Council.

The Huskies finished this season with a 26-9 record and were ranked No. 13 nationally in the Five Star Basketball High School Power Rankings.

During the season Hendricks was named tournament MVP at the 42nd Annual Mercer Invitational held at The Hill School in Pottstown, Pa. He also won the Geico ESPN3 Skills Challenge Three Point Shooting Contest at the Hoop Hall Classic in Springfield, Mass., in January.

"Pacific is a great fit for me academically and basketball-wise," Hendricks said in a press release. "I've known the coaches for quite some time and am excited about where the program is headed."

Pacific recently announced it was leaving the Big West Conference and moving to the West Coast Conference beginning in the fall of 2013.

Hendricks twice made the All-Sierra Foothill League boys basketball team while at Del Oro. He was a Bee All-Metro honorable mention selectee his junior season, when he averaged 18.4 points.
