Football: Cal gets some good news on recruiting front — 4-star WR flips from Washington

After two days of tough news on the recruiting front, Cal has reason to celebrate: Erik Brown, a four-star wide receiver from Summit HS in Fontana has flipped from Washington to Cal, according to both Scout and Rivals.

Brown originally committed to Washington in July, but changed his mind, despite Cal’s 1-10 record.

At 6-foot-2, 170 pounds, Brown is rated as a four-star prospect by both Scout and Rivals.

His change of heart comes on the heels of Cal recruiting losses earlier in the week:

— Four-star cornerback Jaleel Wadood of St. John Bosco in Bellflower, a “soft” commit to Cal, decommitted and plans to attend either USC or UCLA.

— Four-star basketball recruiting target Thomas Welsh, a 7-footer from Loyola HS in Los Angeles, opted for UCLA.
