Update on Defensive Back recruiting in 2022
Coach Watson did not have an ideal start to his Cal tenure as a recruiter. In hindsight, he may have gone a bit all in on too few prospects and left himself vulnerable as those players committed elsewhere or struggled to meet the academic bar. The view is that he will be an exceptional recruiter in the long run given his personality, contacts, and ambitionThe COVID factor is meaningful across position groups but especially at DB in 2022. Jason Oliver was atop many program's wish lists until more film and camp appearances materialized this Spring. The Bears are among many that have moved onZeke Berry is a very good prospect. Less so a student. Sometimes that can still work out at Cal if the recruit is willing to sign up to improve their marks and is excited about the academic challenge in Berkeley. Other times, they decide to commit to Arizona or Oregon or somewhere where they need not improve anything or take on any new challengesThe three players the Bears clearly prioritized that haven't materialized are Jaden Mickey who chose Notre Dame, Avyonee Jones who picked Wisconsin, and Collin Wright who selected Stanford. It seems unlikely Cal will take more than two DB prospects in this cycle. Back in May, the priorities shifted to Cameron Sidney and Jeremiah Earby . Sydney as a CB/NB and Earby as a versatile CB/S prospect. Both are still in play for the Bears.

Predicting the Final 2022 Recruiting Class
It's Father's Day and one of its privileges is the ability to put my neck on the line with predictions about the Bears.Let's get going:QB: Justyn Martin : I think he sticks and the big, athletic prototypical signal-caller heads up the offensive class for CalRB:Kaleb Johnson : Big man with acceleration and soft hands eschews interest from Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan and Iowa State to come West and play for the BearsJaydn Ott : Strong, tough as nails and with home run speed, Ott will join Johnson for the best RB class to come to Cal since Best and VereenWR:Elic Ayomanor : A bit of a raw prospect but there's no denying his height or home run speed. TE:Jack Nickel : Ideal blend of size, physical blocking and plus quickness as a pass receiverOL:Sioape Vatikani : Will be the centerpiece for an outstanding OL classTrent Ramsey : The big 4 star tackle represents athletic upside and length at TackleSam Yoon : One of the rising OL recruits on the West Coast. Smarts, great feet and toughness at TackleJackson Brown : The home town product can play inside and out on the lineDL:Damonic Williams : Strong as a bull, quick as a tiger, the ideal interior DTNate Burrell : An ideal WDE who uses both power and speedJaxson Moi : All around stud, will hold the edge with the best of themOLB:Nunie Tuitele : "Nunie" will be the cry from Bear faithful as he crushes QBs in MemorialCurlee Thomas : Long, strong with oodles of pass-rushing skillDavid Bailey : Sirmon and Heyward pull a rabbit out of their hat for the versatile 4 star from Mater DeiDB:Jeremiah Earby : Will be the steal of the class at 6'2 with sub 11 second 100M speedCameron Sidney : Quick, tough CB who can play nickel or outsideJason Oliver: Yet another, long, athletic Corner for the Cal defense

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a Bear Insider rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Bear Insider Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide Bear Insider readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Cal and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Cal and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
