Modesto Christian High center Robinson Idehen and Stanislaus State recruit Jaelen Ragsdale were named to MaxPreps’ all-state basketball team.
Idehen was a second-team all-state and Division I selection. The 6-foot-10 senior was named the Modesto Metro Conference MVP and helped guide the Crusaders back to the CIF Northern California Open Division final.
Modesto Christian was defeated by De La Salle High in the final seconds and finished with a record of 32-2. Idehen, who will play in Friday’s 6-County All-Star Senior Basketball Game at Modesto Junior College, led the team in scoring (15.8), rebounding (8.7) and blocked shots (2.8).
Ragsdale was a three-year all-Valley Oak League performer at Weston Ranch High and a prized recruit by Stanislaus State coach Larry Reynolds. The 6-foot point guard landed on the all-state third team and was the Division III Player of the Year.
