UC Berkeley recruits Koku Gakuin Prep Kugayama H.S. grad Takeshi Okada for its distance squad, a rare example of a good Japanese high schooler going to a U.S. program.  His twin brother Nozomu Okada runs for Waseda University, one of Japan's top running schools.  The pair's progress through the two systems should be interesting to follow in coming years.  Thanks to Dan Lilot for the link.
