Cal got a commitment Sunday from John Porchivina, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound outside linebacker from Casa Grande HS in Petaluma, according to both Scout.com and Rivals.com.
Porchivina, rated by both recruiting websites as a two-star prospect, originally committed last month to Fresno State but flipped to Cal.
Porchivina may turn out to be a splendid player, but the math is bad. On Saturday, the Bears lost OLB/safety Koa Farmer — a 3- or 4-star prospect — to Penn State. A day later, they replace him with a consensus 2-star player.
