NORTHRIDGE — Orange County might be short on funds but not on basketball players--at least not as far as Cal State Northridge is concerned.
Gerald Rhoden on Thursday became the second junior college player from Orange County to sign a letter of intent with Northridge.
Rhoden, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, averaged 22 points for Golden West College during the 1993-94 season. He sat out last season to focus on his studies.
Rhoden is the fifth junior college transfer to accept a scholarship to Northridge. The Matadors signed Damien Morbley, a 6-6 forward from Orange Coast College, on Tuesday.
