Cal head coach Mark Madsen is quickly reshaping the roster for the Golden Bears in his first year. His task is to resurrect a program that won just three games during the 2022-23 season, so he’s starting from the ground up.

Last week, former Texas Tech big man Fardaws Aimaq committed to play for Madsen. On Tuesday, former Northern Arizona guard Jalen Cone did the same.

The 5-foot-10 Cone spent two seasons at Virginia Tech before transferring to Northern Arizona. He started 63 times over his next 65 appearances while averaging 33.9 minutes a night and 18.2 points a game.

A two-time All-Big Sky selection, Cone averaged 18.8 points and 3.6 assists his first year with the Lumberjacks. Last season, he averaged 17.6 points and 2.5 assists. Cone is a career 39% shooter from 3-point range and shot a career-high from the floor last year (42.4%).

Cone can pile on the points. He topped 25 in 10 games last season, including a 45-point explosion against a strong Southern Utah team that finished with 24 wins.
