MISSION VIEJO — Scott McCorkle of Capistrano Valley High School, a member of The Times' All-County basketball team last season, will sign a national letter of intent to attend Syracuse, he said Sunday.
McCorkle, 6-feet-5, led Capistrano Valley to a 20-4 overall record and the Southern Section 5-A title last year as a junior, when he averaged 24.1 points.
McCorkle said a factor in his decision was the recommendation of his friend, Mike Hopkins, a former Mater Dei player who is a redshirt freshman at Syracuse. Wednesday is the first day seniors can sign national letters of intent for basketball.
McCorkle also visited California, Loyola Marymount and UC Irvine.
