Not a fan of Close but you have to give it to her- she consistently out recruits us.

Well, I don't know about *consistently*. She wanted Kianna Smith and didn't get her. She (and UCLA) was/were eliminated from the Ionsescu sweepstakes before Cal ever was (although, granted, neither school ended up landing Sabrina). I'm sure there's plenty of others.

UCLA under Close gets good recruits, and so does Cal under Gottlieb.

We landed ONE recruit last year (losing a few to UCLA) and have only one recruit this year (again, losing a few to UCLA). You know what I mean- UCLA wins far more battles than we do.

Now... are our wins talented? Of course- Kianna Smith, Mckenzie Forbes, etc were top recruits. We are dangerously thin though for the upcoming years. This year will be incredible for Cal. I am very worried for years to come.

Right on. Wasn't necessarily trying to debate you. Was just giving your Bears some props, is all. Do expect you guys to have a very special season in 2018-19, and wish the Bears plenty of luck (though not when you're playing my Bruins, of course).

Congrats Pat. Nice recruiting.

This will be an interesting year for you as you lost 2 key players. If your team does well this year it will say a lot about your coach. When Boyd and Gray graduated our team went from 13-5 to 4-14.

I think we need to add a young, dynamic recruiter.

As far as Charisma Osborne goes, her tweet says it all. She wanted to stay in Los Angeles.

I'm actually pretty optimistic about this season. There'll definitely be growing pains as the team tries to figure out how to play without Canada and Billings, but there's some good players left, starting with Burke and Drummer, as well as Dean, and then a lot of talented (albeit young) depth behind 'em. By season's end, it should be a reasonably strong team (knock wood).

And the Bears, of course, may well have a *very* special year!

Good luck to both.
