Friday Recruiting Update
Another week closer to the season starting and a week out from Fall Camp.Big BBQ for both 2022 and 2023 recruits coming up - see MBs details hereDecent chance that Cal exits the weekend (inclusive of Monday) with two announcements and just perhaps the two positions generating the most anxiety - DB and OL - won't be so angsty.The offer of DB Jahlil Florence is an interesting one. A superb athlete with wonderful size for the position. As high a ceiling as you will see but also a pretty low floor given his inexperience with Football. Comes from a very academically minded family which may allow Cal to sneak into the race alongside Michigan, UW and Oregon. UCLA has two other corners already with offers, both of whom the Bruins feel good about. That may allow the Bears to be the high academic, closest to home option. It also puts pressure on Jeremiah Earby and Cameron Sidney as DB spots are few and far between in this class. We continue to hear that Jake Maikkula, Sam Yoon and Jackson Brown are all closing in on a decision. Maikkula told us perhaps tomorrow, perhaps not. Our sense is he may take a bit more time. Brown is attending the BBQ and that has to feel good for the Cal staff. Yoon continues to analyze his priority preferences and the remaining slots at those schools. This next week likely will tell us a lot about how the OL class comes together for the Bears.

Tuesday Afternoon Update
A few thoughts:As official visits are now over (for quite a while), uncommitted recruits are back home, and discussions around the timing of making decisions, available scholarships and how long they will remain available, which visit was their favorite, etc are now front and center. I'm a bit surprised things haven't moved faster with some of Cal's recent visitors but that's how things have played out.My intuition is telling me that Sam Yoon is looking to slow play Cal as he awaits a potential Stanford offer. I can't imagine that's going to play well with the staff and at the very least, they will move on and assume he's not coming, and potentially they will move on completely. This one is complicated as Sam's view, his parents and his grandparents may not all be aligned here.Luka Vincic , Jackson Brown, and Jake Maikkula all feel like near-term decision-makers. Ramsey plays things closer to the vest and may take his time. Lots of mutual attraction with him and Cal yet it feels to BI that he's a bit careful about what's going to drive his decision and the most important factors to him and his family. Would not be surprised to see Jaydn Ott make his decision this week. The feeling here is that he will pick the Bears. He comes from a large family and he plays an important role in supporting his Mom and younger siblings so that will weigh on him as he makes a choiceThe Jeremiah Earby situation is less clear. Football and physical-wise, he's tailor-made for the Cal defense. Would be a very good get. His friend/mentor just choose Oregon State which led to some CBs going to the Beavers but that feels premature. A more considered and thoughtful decision (and one that involves his Mom) is likely to lead him to Cal. Interest in him is picking up from other spots and there may be a bit of the allure to enjoy the recruiting process coming out of COVID that delays him.Cal and Stanford are in a dog fight for both Jaiven Plummer and Elic Ayomanor , the two big WRs from Virginia and Canada respectively. I doubt either of them strongly considers any other schools. Look for Elic to decide in the next 7-10 days with Plummer announcing on his birthday, July 21st. I feel good about both but Stanford will be tough competition.

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.”
