Cal got a key player in an area of need on Sunday when Jordan Veasy, a wide receiver from Golden West College committed, he announced on Twitter. He caught 63 passes for 1,036 yards and 11 touchdowns for the 8-3 Rustlers this season.
At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Veasy will play an outside receiver spot. He is expected to enroll for the spring semester, participate in spring workouts and will have two seasons of eligibility.
Most of Cal’s frontline wideouts — Bryce Treggs, Trevor Davis, Stephen Anderson, Darius Powe and Maurice Harris — are seniors, so the Bears are in the market for newcomers at the position.
Veasy grew up in Gadsden, Alabama, spent on season at Itawamba CC in Mississippi, then transferred to Golden West in Huntington Beach this fall. He had five 100-yard receiving games this season, including six catches for 168 yards and two touchdowns against Palomar and 11 receptions for 117 yards and two TDs against Mt. San Antonio College.
Veasy is the Bears’ fourth wide receiver commit — all of them 6-2 or taller.
