    Wow! Those are offers from some real football powers. The problem with sleepers is sometimes they don’t wake up.

    I was thinking the same thing about all those highly rated recruits at USC that can’t even beat a one star Washington team who lost to BYU and they lost to Utah State.

    Welcome to the California Family! So happy he picked Cal over Stanford!

    For all those critics of this recruit…Cal has a pretty good history of getting some good sleepers: Alex Mack, two star recruit, might be the best center in the NFL right now. Mike Mohammed, team’s best LB, two star recruit. Cameron Jordan was a three star. Kendrick Payne was a two star…come to think of it, our two star recruits seem to be producing just as much if not more than our four star recruits (Kevin Riley, Derrick Hill, Costanzo…)

    Also, (1) recruiting is an art, not a science (2) players’ star ratings change over the course of the year, (3) the only thing that matters is what Nate can do once he’s on the field. Welcome to the club!

    Marshawn Lynch just traded to join Forsett with the Seahawks. As a Cal fan and a Seahawks fan, this is pretty great news.

    Nah, he’s too busy investigating the new rules violations at $C. MoreSanctionsAreComing.
