Football: Cal commit rushes for 468 yards

Cal is expected to get an official campus visit next weekend from East Bay prep star Joe Mixon, one of the highest-rated prospects in the country.

But the Bears already have a verbal commitment from one of the nation’s most productive high school running backs.

Tre Watson of Corona-Centennial rushed for a school record 468 yards on 37 carries, scoring seven touchdowns, in a 69-55 win over Ventura-St. Bonaventure on Friday night.

“He was incredible,” coach Matt Logan told the Los Angeles Times, hardly overstating things.

In two games, Watson has rushed for 787 yards and 12 touchdowns.
