Football: Cal gets three defensive commits

With signing day barely a week away, Cal football got three more oral commitments following a busy recruiting weekend, according to Scout.com, adding three defensive players to a class that currently numbers 28.
 
Ray Davison, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound outside linebacker from Crespi-Encino is rated as a three-star prospect by Scout. He had de-committed from original plans to attend Northwestern.
 
The Bears also picked up Jacobi Hunter, a 6-foot, 285-pound defensive tackle from Cypress Falls-Houston, and Marcus Manley, a 6-2, 279-pound defensive tackle from Santa Monica City College. Hunter is rated as a two-star prospect by Scout.
 
Darius Allensworth of Heritage-Menifee,  a three-star defensive back already committed to Cal, also was on campus for his official visit this weekend. But he tweeted tonight that Washington State coach Mike Leach paid him a visit tonight when he returned home from Berkeley.
 
Allensworth, who visited WSU a week ago, is among three Cal prospects considered “soft” commits. Another one of those is four-star offensive guard Cameron Hunt of Centennial-Corona, who also was in Berkeley. Oregon is trying to flip Hunt, regarded as one of Cal’s top commits.
 
Commitments do not become binding until the Feb. 6 signing day.
 

Scout.com is reporting that Jacobi Hunter, a 6-foot, 285-pound defensive tackle from Cypress Falls HS in Houston, Texas, has committed to Cal.
