Boys' basketball player Christian Ware-Berry didn't exactly keep his transfer plans under wraps. In fact, the high-scoring guard posted on his Twitter account that he is transferring from Providence High to West Ranch in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Pioneers' Coach Ernest Baskerville confirmed that Ware-Berry has left the program.
"I had an idea that it was coming because his family had to move," Baskerville said Monday.
"It was unfortunate for sure, but I wish him the best. He is just a great all-around person; a great student, great kid, great basketball player, great leader, great teammate, all of those things. We had a team barbecue [Sunday] and he was there hangin' with the other guys…he will always be a part of our basketball family."
Last season, Ware-Berry was one of the most talented boys' basketball players in the city.
"To me, he was the best — period," Baskerville said.
During the 2012-13 season, Ware-Berry was called upon to be the leader for Providence and shoulder the scoring load when Pioneers' All-State and All-Area Player of the Year Marcus LoVett Jr. was sidelined with an illness.
