FULLERTON, Calif. — TMI Episcopal center Kendrick De Luna has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Cal State Fullerton men's basketball program, head coach Dedrique Taylor announced Wednesday.
"Kendrick makes me smile just to think of him," Taylor said. "He has a great personality, he's a very good student and he plays for Titan legend Bruce Bowen. At 6-11, his size and skill give me goosebumps when I envision the possibilities that he allows for this program. He is Texas tough and allows us to do different things on the floor in our pursuit of a Big West title and another appearance in the NCAA Tournament."
A three-star commit from San Antonio, Texas, De Luna is ranked as a top-50 center nationally from the class of 2023, per 247Sports. He was named District MVP as a junior in 2021-22, as well as a First Team All-State and First Team All-District member. De Luna helped lead his team to a district championship and state championship game appearance in 2022.
De Luna holds his school's record for rebounding and is coached at TMI Episcopal by former Titan and longtime NBA forward, Bruce Bowen. He chose Cal State Fullerton over Texas, Oklahoma and others.
De Luna is the third player to sign with the Cal State Fullerton men's basketball program, joining Keith Richard of Dallas, Texas and Antwan Robinson of East St. Louis, Illinois.
