There’s been talk during the last week that offensive lineman Stan Hasiak isn’t a firm commitment to Cal. He visited Washington last weekend and there is talk that he will visit USC this weekend. The belief is Hasiak never had any intention of committing to Washington but was simply following through with an orginally planned trip, one he took with a high school teammate. Not as sure about USC, but it still seems as though Hasiak is pretty committed to Cal. He was quoted on the L.A. Daily News blog that “the plan” still is to sign with Cal and that his commitment is “solid.”
With Randall Carroll now apparently out of the picture, the recruitment of Tucson wide receiver/defensive back Adam Hall looms large. Cal has put together a pretty good class, but it could use a wide receiver. Granted, the Bears have many young receivers, some of which we don’t know much about because they played on scout team last year. But based on what we do know, Cal could use as much depth as possible at that position.
Hall is considering Cal, Arizona and Oregon. Hall’s father went to Arizona and it might take a pretty good sales pitch to lure him away from home. But the latest reports are that Hall isn’t leaning toward any of the three schools. All three were scheduled to have in-home visits this week and Hall will annouce his decision at a press conference Friday morning.
As good as Cal’s class is, it would be a little bit of a setback for Cal not to secure one of the there top prospects that have waited until the last moment to commit — Carroll, defensive end Devon Kennard (USC) and Hall.
