Lars Thiemann officially announced his commitment to Cal.

"I'm happy and proud to announce that I will join Cal next season. I'm incredibly excited to be a part of Mark Fox's very first recruiting class. I couldn't pass on the opportunity to attend such an academically prestigious university while playing college basketball at a level like the Pac-12," Thiemann told Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

The 7-foot Thiemann averaged 19 points and 13 rebounds for Leverkusen in the German NBBL U19 league last season.
