The Bears got perhaps their biggest recruiting news of the year on Monday when Jordan Duncan, rated a four-star wide receiver by Rivals, announced via Twitter he will attend Cal next fall.
“It’s Official! I AM A CAL BEAR! #CalGang16 LET’S GOOOO”
A 6-foot-1, 193-pounder from Oak Grove High in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Duncan made a campus visit over the weekend.
He caught 71 passes for 1,207 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior, according to Rivals. As a sophomore, Duncan caught 65 passes for 926 yards and 10 TDs, reported the website RecruitingNewsGuru.com.
Duncan also plays safety and cornerback for his high school team, helping the Warriors to back-to-back state championship game appearances and a title in 2013.
The 22nd player to orally commit to Cal, Duncan is rated as a three-star prospect by Scout.com. He chose the Bears among offers from at least a dozen schools, including Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Tennessee.
