Schea Cotton, one of the top young basketball players in the nation, has registered at Mater Dei, Monarch Coach Gary McKnight said Monday. Cotton, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound freshman, began the school year at Bellflower St. John Bosco, where he was playing on the varsity.

Under Southern Section rules, a player who transfers is eligible if his family has a change of residence.
