FULLERTON — Cal State Fullerton received letters of intent from six basketball players Wednesday, two men and four women.

Coach Bob Hawking announced the signing of Mark Richardson, a 6-foot-7 forward from Ft. Wayne, Ind., and Brian Montonati, a 6-9 forward from Muskegon, Mich.

Richardson, who played for Bishop Dwenger High, averaged 10 points and eight rebounds. Montonati, who played for Orchard View High, averaged 23 points and 14 rebounds.

Women's Coach Deborah Ayres brought her recruiting total to eight players in the early signing period with the addition of Justine McMahon of Red Bluff High, Andrea Thieme of Alameda High and two players from the College of San Mateo, Patrice Johnson and Kathy Hankee.

Johnson, a 5-9 guard, averaged 12.3 points last season and Ayres calls her "one of the quickest point guards in the country." Hankee averaged 15.6 points and nine rebounds. Thieme averaged 20 points and McMahon 19 last season as high school juniors.

Fullerton also signed two softball players. Coach Judi Garman added Wendi Griffin of Garden Grove and Liza Brown of Rancho Cucamonga. Griffin holds her school's career records for runs batted in and stolen bases. Brown, a pitcher, was chosen MVP in her league and had a 0.15 earned-run average.
