Four Big Defensive Recruits Projected To Be Golden Bears

The reliable Charles Drake of The West Coast Buzz makes some projections, and Cal comes out very favorably.

DT

Viliami Moala

Grant HS, Ca.

Washington, Cal, Alabama

Drake: It's always been Cal. Tiny and Coach Lupoi at Cal have a great relationship. I'd be shocked if he didn't declare for the Golden Bears after the season.

S

James Sample

Grant HS, Ca.

Washington, Cal

Drake: Likely to announce with his teammates after the season (including Moala) and cement Grant as a Cal pipeline.

 

DE/OLB

Jason Gibson

Serra HS, Ca.

Cal, Oregon, Florida, UCLA, USC

Drake: Right now it looks as if, at least publicly, USC is not doing enough to make Gibson feel wanted. Cal has been on him the longest and have made him a priority. Another team to watch for with Gibson is UCLA.

 

DT

Todd Barr

Lakewood HS, Ca.

Cal, Washington, Florida, UCLA

 

Drake: Very tough projection here. He loved his trip to Florida and will come back for an official, Cal has always seemed to be his leader, and he really likes UCLA. If he wants to stay out West, at this point, I think it's Cal. But Florida is a very real possibility at this time.

Other big names considering Cal include cornerback Stefan McClure (projected for UCLA), safety Marqise Lee (projected for USC), athlete Devon Blackmon (projected for UCLA)
