Football: Bears get commit from SoCal DE

Garrett Hughes, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound defensive end from Corona-Centennial, has committed to the Bears. Scout.com rates Hughes as a two-star prospect.

Hughes will come to Cal from the same school as offensive lineman Cameron Hunt, who previously committed.

    Wow UCB state just found a way to recruit a 5*. Add this guy (2*) with the last gus at 2* and you only need a 1* to sign.


  • Juancho

    Whoopdy do! Looks like the staff has decided we’ve already lost this year, let’s just get enough bodies at this point. Let’s hope it’s a small class and we don’t harm the program for the next 2-3 years by offering a bunch of two star guys.

    This isn’t early in the process. A two star guy at this date isn’t like a two star guy six months ago. High school seasons are about halfway done.

    What a travesty. High paid coach, clueless AD, and now bad recruiting means we’re going to leave little in the pantry for the next coach.

  • Larry

    Hey! At least we didn’t sign Kevin Hart!

  • Kyle

    Juancho has all the answers. Hey dummy why don’t you go coach and be the AD. I mean you know it all. 1 star, 2 star….etc doesn’t mean anything loser.

  • rollonubears

    Happy Big Game Week everybody!

  • joey

    Right on Kyle!

  • Easy Ed

    Hey Cheeto Kid, have you gotten a job yet? Have you completed junior college yet? Please get your life together, myself and several members of the Club are ready to do an intervention for “Daddy”. We were going to ask for your help but I told them that you were the reason he drinks in the first place!

  • Ho

    Juancho for head coach! Not…

  • covinared

    Welcome Garrett! Please disregard those who feel your committment is a bad thing for the team because some recruiting service gives you two stars. I am happy for you and the Cal community.

  • covinared

    you will also find that the people in nocal are more genuine, earthy, and more aware of what really is important in life. the downside is that fewer women will have fake breasts.

  • The Wisdom Cow

    This sure takes the sting out of Lee going to Kentucky.

    Roll on you Bears . . .

  • Suttree

    If you follow recruiting you know we are still in the mix for a bunch of high rated guys. We knew a down year was coming with To$h gone. I’m totally fine with how it is pannig out as long as we finish strong.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    In order to get more elite recruits, UCB state should invest $150 million into a start of the art high performance center.

    That should do it.

  • Beastmode

    Too bad Cal can’t auction off the knife collection of its most famous graduate to pay the bills. Discount double check!

  • Steve W

    Juancho is dead on about the need for 4 and 5-star recruits in order for Cal football to succeed. Only guys like Mike Riley and Kyle Wittingham can coach up unknown 2- stars to greatness. Tedford……forget about it. He needs those sure thing guys like Keenan Allen and Desean Jackson to get to the minor bowl games he is now famous for. Kind of sad, but true.

  • Boaltblue

    Welcome Garrett Hughes to the Cal Family! Please ignore those so-called fans, including one who calls himself a youth coach, who spout so much negativity, fear, and ignorance in disparaging the Cal Football program, its coaches, and players.

    I join plenty of other Cal Football fans who wish you the very best and hope that you follow in the footsteps of so many 2-Star diamonds discovered by Coach Jeff Tedford and his staff who have went on to great Cal careers and the NFL, including Justin Forsett, Alex Mack, Mike Tepper, Thomas DeCoud, Matt Giordano, and 2009 Big Game Hero, Mike Mohamed.

    The sky is the limit! When you get to Cal, show the world what you are made of!

    Go Bears!

  • Juancho

    Thanks to everyone who took time to make a personal attack on me. Especially to boalt for bringing my baseball coaching into it.

    I volunteer as a baseball coach in one of the roughest neighborhoods in the bay area, bayview hunters point so i can expose kids to cal and encourage them to always pursue excellence. So your snide comment hurts.

    I analyze our football program like a business. When i express dissapointment in mediocrity its not personal. And i dont make personal attacks. On that note. Im out.

  • Boaltblue


    One of my points is that a coach like you should not disparage a player/recruit which you obviously did. You were referring to our recent 2-Star recruit and described it as “bad recruiting” before the recruit stepped out on the field. How is that not a personal attack on our recruit (as well as others listed in your comment)?

  • Juancho

    Sounds good boalt. Best wishes.

    Jeff its been a pleasure being one of your bloggers.

    I wish you would reconsider. I think you are taking this a bit too far.

    Your main point is a valid one. The bloggers on this site are an uncivil, rude lot but why let that stop you. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

    Stick to the truth.

  • BlueNGold

    Spoken by one who has been untruthful for such a long time that it cannot discern what is, in fact, the truth.

  • Easy Ed

    Juancho I value your input on this blog and would never personally attack you for your thoughts. Having said that, if Boaltblue hurt your feelings, imagine you’re a 17 year old kid who just committed to Cal and you read that you’re not a player but instead a mistake from a bad coach and AD? Kind of hurts doesn’t it? Toughen up Juancho come on back and contribute to the conversation. As for you Cheeto Kid? Get a job, finish school and get a life!

    How about yet another prediction from you?

    Then after you are wrong again you can stay around this blog and call me a liar when I say that you don’t follow thru on your bets.

    And you are still above 90% but that’s another subject in which you are deeply in denial.

  • BlueNGold

    how about yet another prediction from the parasite? What is your predicted final score? Put some specifics behind your trash talk. You might give yourself at least one life accomplishment to crow about. Otherwise, your posts are just more of the same undistinguished, no life troll babble.

  • wehofx

    Wow. just got around to reading this wack thread.

    Juancho, Boalt and Easy both explained their remarks were NOT personal. imo, there were not.

    More importantly, I’m pretty sure kyle #4 and ho #8 are more sn aliases from moron. Think about it, isn’t that typical sociopathic sh*t disturbing from amy?

    Anyone else remember posts from kyle or ho?

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    #25 – You are wrong. Why is it that any anti-UCB state automatically gets put on me.

  • BlueNGold

    moron sez:

    “Why is it that any anti-UCB state automatically gets put on me”.

    Because you are a Cal hating, trash talking parasitic troll. DUH!!!!
