DE Kennedy Emesibe of Oaks Hills HS has signed, meaning the Bears landed all 15 players on Wednesday who previously had committed to them. Unless there is a late surprise — and you never know — Cal looks to be done.
Here are the current Pac-12 team rankings from Scout.com and Rivals.com:
Scout: 12. Stanford; 14. ASU; 19. UCLA; 21. Arizona; 23. Oregon; 30. USC; 38. UW; 43. Cal; 47. OSU; 59. WSU; 71. Utah; 72. Colorado.
Rivals: 13. Stanford; 16. UCLA; 19. ASU; 24. USC; 27. Arizona; 30. Oregon; 39. UW; 45. Cal; 52. OSU; 63. Colorado; 67. WSU; 72. Utah.
Still awaiting word on DE Kennedy Emesibe of Oak Hills HS. Otherwise, the Bears have signed paperwork from each of the remaining 15 prospects they anticipated signing today. Word is an offer has gone out to one more player. Will keep you posted.
Nifae Lealao, the 4-star DE from Capital Christian-Sacramento, fooled no one when he lined up four hats — including Cal, but not Vanderbilt — on a table in front of him as he made his college announcement. The 6-foot-6, 290-pounder chose Vandy, whose new HC Derek Mason, recruited him for Stanford last fall.
We’re not sure why Saf Sam Atoe of College of San Mateo — a mid-year signee — is not listed with Cal’s other signees on its website. An oversight or a hint that he is not enrolled in school after all? We’ll find out at Sonny Dykes’ signing day news conference this afternoon. Update: Atoe had paperwork that needed finishing; his signing is now complete and official.
