A good night for Cal football recruiting.
Linebacker Aisea Tongilava of Orange-Lutheran High announced via Twitter on Monday night that he has picked Cal over Washington.
A 6-foot, 210-pounder, who originally committed to San Jose State, Tongilava is rated as a three-star prospect by both Scout.com and Rivals.com.
With barely a week left before national signing day, Cal also picked up commitment Sunday night from one-time Northwestern pledge Noah Westerfield, an outside linebacker/defensive end from Wakefield High in Frisco, Texas.
Scout rates the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder as a three-star prospect while Rivals gives him two stars.
The Bears lost Saf/OLB Koa Farmer to Penn State last weekend, but now have landed three defensive players since Art Kaufman came on board as defensive coordinator.
