MV’s McGovern heading to Cal as preferred walk-on

A little football news today…

Monte Vista wide receiver/defensive back Bryce McGovern said Wednesday that he’s accepted a preferred walk-on spot at Cal.
“I loved how close it was (to home), that it’s really great football and that it’s great academically,” McGovern said. “Everything just seemed like a family. All the guys took me under their wing and it just felt right.”
McGovern was also considering Ivy League schools Princeton and Cornell before taking an official visit to Berkeley last weekend and giving Cal coach Jeff Tedford his commitment on Sunday morning.
In two seasons at Monte Vista, McGovern finished with 177 career catches for 3,263 yards. He set a Northern California record his junior season when he caught 106 passes.
