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

Scouting Report - Nunie Tuitele
Colorado OLB Nunie Tuitele gave his verbal pledge to Cal over the weekend, making him the fifth member of the 2022 class and the fourth on defense.Tuitele is a young man whose recruiting pedigree belied how high the Cal staff had him on their list. It starts with a limited opportunity for him to be evaluated. Tuitele had planned to use the Spring and Summer between his Sophomore and Junior seasons to do the camp circuit and get scouted. COVID prevented those from taking place, putting a premium on a limited five-game Junior season. Secondly, his HS film had as many snaps of him playing nose tackle/defensive tackle, tight end, and long snapper as it did playing as a DE/OLB. That makes projecting him more challenging. So what did the Cal staff see that shot him up to the top of their board?Tuitele is built differently from most of the prototypical OLBs you'll see in a 4-3 defense. He has a very stout lower body that creates a lot of power and projects well to his ability to set the edge against the run. He plays with great leverage and can really bend for a long-player at nearly 6-4. Those attributes might seem more in line with a DE/DT though in Nunie's case, he can also really run. Very good top-end speed mixed with good change of direction quickness, allowing him to shed tacklers and rush the passer. His flexibility, speed, and power are a rare combination for an OLB and that matched with tremendous physicality and a very high motor caught the eye of the Bears staff. His playstyle projects similarly to current Cal OLB Braxten Croteau though Tuitele appears to have a higher ceiling given his speed and power. With regard to his motor, every prep player at this level plays hard, that's a given. However, there are some kids who play with extra relentlessness, who seem to be indefatigable in a way that is rare. The 2022 Defensive commits thus far all have that in common. On the current roster, JH Tevis comes to mind as a player whose non-stop motor stands out even on a field of elite and passionate athletes.Coach Wilcox has always put a premium on finding young men who love to play football as opposed to those who love being a football player. There seems to be an additional emphasis on finding recruits who have an extraordinary passion to play in 2022.

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.”
