Johnny Ragin III, an outside linebacker from Wilsonville, Ore., decommitted from BYU and said he will attend Cal, according to scout.com.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is rated as a three-star prospect by the website.
Ragin, on his twitter account, wrote: ” . . . I have decommitted from BYU and have officially committed to
#Cal. Go Bears!
“And I’m not one to go back on my word, so this is difficult for me. But ultimately, I have to do what I feel’s best for my family and I.”
Tweeted recruiting expert Greg Biggins of Scout: “Tough loss for BYU, big pickup for Cal, Johnny Ragin was easily among the most underrated prospects in the west region this year.”
Ragin’s commitment boosts the total to 26 players expected to sign with the Bears on Feb. 6.
