Football: Cal building a WR class

The Bears reportedly have received an oral commitment from athlete Cedric Dozier out of Washington. Dozier is believed to be head to Cal to play wide receiver. Dozier had offers from much of the Pac-12, among others.

If Dozier ends up at WR, that means Cal already has three wide receivers among its eight oral commitments so far, with the others being five-star recruit Bryce Treggs as well as Kenneth Walker.

If Shaq Thompson winds up at Cal as many believe he still will, he’s expected to play wide receiver as well. That could give the Bears one of the top WR classes in the country, and there could be others.

It’s a good thing, too. The receiving corps would look pretty thing without an influx of talent next season. The Bears are losing Marvin Jones, Michael Calvin and Coleman Edmond. That would leave Keenan Allen and not much else, especially with the academic status of Kaelin Clay up in the air. Certainly, these incoming freshmen know they have a chance to play right away at Cal, possibly even start.
