Football: Bears get commitment from 3-star WR but lose elite QB prospect to Arizona State

Cal got its third verbal commitment in the class of 2015 when three-star wide receiver Greyson Bankhead of Centennial-Corona picked the Bears over SMU and Arizona, according to Scout.com.

A 5-foot-9, 155-pounder, Bankhead caught 73 passes for 1,031 yards on the same Centennial team that is sending running back Tre Watson to Berkeley this fall.

Meanwhile, Cal recruiting target Brady White, rated the nation’s No. 9 quarterback prospect in the class of 2015 by Scout.com, announced he will attend Arizona State. 

White, from Hart-Newhall — the same high school that produced Joe Kapp — had narrowed his choices to ASU, Cal and Oregon before choosing the Sun Devils.

White passed for 4,535 yards and 41 touchdowns while rushing for 320 yards and nine more scores as a junior last season.

    Disappointing to miss out on White but welcome to Greyson Bankhead – based on what I’ve read about him on other sites, he sounds like a great fit academically as well. I’m encouraged by our staff’s ability to target players that are likely to succeed her both athletically and academically. It’s a major change from a few years ago and bodes well for the future.

    We used to get the best QBs. Things have changed. Ugh.
