A pair of South Sound basketball standouts have made verbal commitments to play at two Pac-10 schools.

Vashon High’s John Gage, a 6-foot-10 center, has selected Stanford and Auburn Riverside guard Mercedes Wetmore will play at Washington. Gage, who picked the Cardinal over Cal and Washington, helped the Pirates win the Class 1A state title in March. Wetmore has been a mainstay in the Ravens’ lineup the last two seasons, helping Auburn Riverside win the Class 3A title in 2008 and place fourth at the 4A tournament this year.

Gage and Wetmore were selected to The News Tribune’s All-Area boys and girls first teams.
