SF Calvin Hermanson picks Gaels

St. Mary's landed a verbal commitment from perimeter player Calvin Hermanson (Lake Oswego, Ore./Lake Oswego) on Wednesday night, the Contra Costa Times reported.

The 6-foot-5 Hermanson chose the Gaels over Marquette, Oregon State, Utah, Drake and UC Santa Barbara.

"They've been recruiting me for about a year now," he told the paper. "I love the coaches. I have a great relationship with them."

Hermanson was the Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Oregon last season after averaging 23.0 points and 7.4 rebounds for Lake Oswego. He joins point guard Cullen Neal (Albuquerque, N.M./Eldorado) as 2013 recruits for St. Mary's.
