Sidney transfers to Fairfax

As eluded to on this blog earlier in the week, blue chipper Renardo Sidney will indeed play basketball at Fairfax (Los Angeles) next season.

According to RISE Magazine, the rumor become reality when his father, Renardo Sr., broke the news to reporters Thursday at the Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic in New York City.

It's the third high school in as many years for Sidney, a native of Mississippi. Sidney, a 6-9 forward, is considered one of the nation's top 5 players in the Class of 2009. He helped lead Artesia (Lakewood) to the CIF Division III title and final No. 6 ranking last season.

Fairfax won its second Division I state crown in four years and finished ranked No. 21 in the National Prep Poll last season. Top returning players include senior guard
Chris Solomon (6-2) and junior forward Solomon Hill (6-5).

We are already putting together preseason national rankings and it seems likely that the Lions will end up somewhere in or near the Top 10.
