Linebacker Brian Banks, the former Long Beach Poly High star who spent five years in prison for a rape he didn't commit, will work out for the 49ers beginning Monday at the team's rookie minicamp.
After attending Seattle's three-day minicamp this week, he tweeted, "No immediate invite back to camp w Seahawks. One more tryout w them stands in my way. In the meantime... 49ers mini camp Monday!"
A source told this newspaper that Banks will arrive Sunday night and spend three days with the 49ers.
Banks was a junior in high school when he was accused of rape. He was being recruited by USC and UCLA, among others, when the accusation was made. Banks pleaded no contest and spent five years in prison and five years on parole until last year, when his accuser said she had lied about the rape.
Banks, 26, also has had a tryout with Kansas City.
Adam Plutko allowed just one run in seven innings, and UCLA (48-14) jumped on College World Series newcomer Stony Brook (52-14) for five runs in the first inning en route to a 9-1 win in the opener in Omaha, Neb. A's draft choice Tyler Johnson (12-2) allowed seven runs in 21/3 innings for the Seawolves.
Theo Walcott came on as a substitute to score one goal and set up another in England's come-from-behind 3-2 win over Sweden at the European Championship in Kiev, Ukraine. The result eliminated Sweden and leaves England needing only a draw in its final Group D match against Ukraine to ensure a spot in the quarterfinals. Also, Jeremy Menez and Yohan Cabaye had second-half goals to give France a 2-0 win over Ukraine in Donetsk. A thunderstorm forced the players off the field after five minutes, and the game took an hour to resume. After a 1-1 draw with England, France has four points in Group D, one more than Ukraine.
Justin Wilson, last week's winner at Texas, qualified second. But he and points leader Will Power, who qualified fourth, are among seven drivers facing a 10-position start penalty for making unapproved engine changes.
