Football: Kenbrell Thompkins

El Camino College wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins is still considering Cal. Thompkins took a recruiting trip to Oregon last weekend and has yet to make a decision. He also still hasn’t been granted his release from Tennessee, which could complicate things past Signing Day. Thompkins has several major offers, and El Camino coach John Featherstone said Nebraska and Oklahoma have entered the mix recently.

    Great news. Hopefully this guy decides to choose Cal. Anyone have an idea how long Cal has been involved in recruiting this guy?

    OT- but, big news! The combo brothers Keenen Allen and Zach Maynard are visiting this weekend. Martin will likely be there to sway them…

    Go BEARS!

    Another OT – Rumor Mill is brewing that Gabe King could be on campus, too. Smells like another late push.

    Go BEARS!

    Rumor is you just signed two more no name, no star wide receivers. that’s what I call going to the bottom of the barrel. The way you guys are going I might have to changed my projection for next year. 7th in the conference sounds too high.

    NoMoreNC…that is Bull Sh** He is 3* from Rival.
    Well, don’t cry if $C is barred from any post season for a few years.

  • Calduke

    Coleman Edmond is probably the ‘referenced’ WR. 3-star.
    He led SoCal JCs in all purpose yards.

  • uh oh.

    In a prior post, I said it’s good to go away for college. Oklahoma and Nebraska do not qualify as “away”. They qualify as “hicksville”. Come north, Kembrell, but not too far north. Too much cloud cover can be culture shock for a So-Cal boy.

    rumor has it Amy’s ‘inside source’ at USC was not retained by Boy Blunder. No more ‘inside scoops’ on potential recruits choosing the Trojans over the Bears. What will we ever do ?

  • MEXgldnbear

    Dude, Amy does not really have any inside sources.

    Here isa great report from the Senior Bowl practices. If you watch the video clip you will see your team on it multiple times.


  • CruzinBears

    Is that the clip that has a NFL scout saying Taylor Mays can’t plant and his footwork reminds him of Fred Flintstone or the clip that has Syd’Quan tearing it up in zone coverage and run support?

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    I find it amazing how much hate there is on this board. Taylor is a Pac 10 guy. don’t you want him to do well? Here let me answer that for you. No – because we beat 7 out of the last 8 years. Stay classy Bear fans.

  • Cal93

    You do the same, since you are good at it.

  • CruzinBears

    No one here hates Taylor Mays, only all the players he cheap-shotted do, we are just all happy to see NFL scouts recognize that Syd’Quan is a much better prospect than Taylor Mays… You may go back to trolling now…

  • Cal Ferrari Martin

    No, I hope Taylor is a flop.

  • BlueNGold

    Its not just ironic that moron the troll would try to call out Bear fans for not being classy- its absolute hypocrisy. Taylor Mays will be the beneficiary of the law of karma- as you sow, so shall you reap.
