Cal is still in the hunt for five-star running back Joe Mixon of Freedom HS in Oakley, who has cut his list of potential schools to 10, according to the recruiting websites Scout.com and Rivals.com.
Mixon said he also still will consider Oregon, Oregon State and Washington from the Pac-12, but has eliminated Arizona State, UCLA and USC.
Others still in the mix are Tennessee, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Ohio State and Wisconsin. In providing his list of 10 finalists to Scout.com, Mixon said they were in no particular order.
Both Scout and Rivals list Mixon as a five-star prospect, each ranking the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder among the nation’s top five tailbacks.
