Four-star wide receiver Jordan Duncan of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, is the third committed Cal football prospect to sign a financial agreement with the Bears, allowing him to enroll in January and participate in spring workouts.
Don’t be surprised if you see Duncan on the field immediately as a freshman next fall.
His early arrival will be significant for the Bears, who will lose much of a veteran receiving corps after this season. Bryce Treggs, Trevor Davis, Maurice Harris, Stephen Anderson and Darius Powe all are seniors and junior Kenny Lawler may consider entering the NFL early.
Duncan, rated as a four-star prospect by both Rivals and ESPN, certainly will get the chance to help fill the void.
“Jordan Duncan is an elite athlete,” Cal coach Sonny Dykes said in a statement. “He’s got good size and speed as well as great ball skills. He also has a fantastic work ethic and is one of the most mature young people I’ve ever met.
“Jordan is very focused and knows what he wants. I think he is going to be a very productive football player and because he’s going to graduate early from high school and go through spring ball he will have a great chance to play as a freshman.”
