Bears Net Big Running Back Target in JSerra RB Chris Street

June 23, 2019

The Bears pulled in one of their top offensive recruiting targets with today's commitment from 5-10/185  JSerra running back Chris Street. 

Street was in town on an official visit with fellow running back Damien Moore (Bishop Alemany) as well as Lawndale DB EJ Jackson and St Louis-Honolulu WR Matt Sykes.

It was one of several visits for Street to Berkeley. After his second trip earlier this month, Street noted his high comfort level with the program and seemed prime for a commitment on his official visit this weekend.

Street has been close with fellow Cal commit (Corona Centennial DB) Isaiah Young for much of his life.

“That’s family,” said Young this afternoon. “We are cousins and I’m more than excited to be able to play ball with him in college.

“I know he can be a big difference and playmaker on the other side of the ball and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for both of us.”

“Isaiah’s been texting me, saying, ‘Come to the bay with me! Come join the family!’ said Street earlier. I’ve known Isaiah since we were young, since were around four years old. Our moms were close, so I was always there, hanging around.”

As a junior, Street rushed for 1342 yards in 202 carries and 17 td’s for JSerra.

The Bears beat out Oregon, Utah, ASU, Florida and more for Street’s services.
