The Bears continued to add impressive depth with the commitment of Missouri portal transfer Marcus Scott a few days after his official visit to Cal over the weekend.

The 2022 5-11/180 4 star consensus cornerback signed with Mizzou from Conroe High School in Texas after compiling 55 tackles, four interceptions, 18 passes broken up, two blocked kicks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, scoring three touchdowns on a pick-6, a 75-yard scoop and score and a returned onside kick for 65 yards. As a senior in 2021, Scott was named first-team District 13-6A, first-team District 13-6A academic, first-team all-county and second-team academic all-state. The speedy CB also stood out on the track as a member of his 6A state champion 4x400-meter team that had the top prep time in the nation at a blazing 3:13.37). He also ran a 10.9 in the 100m and 21.90 in the 200m.

Scott missed the 2022 season due to injury and will have four years to play four seasons for the Bears. He is the fourth defensive backfield portal add for the Bears, joining junior corners Nohl Williams‍ and Kaylin Moore‍ and safety Patrick McMorris‍ along with JC safety transfer Matt Littlejohn‍. He is the fifth portal add for the Bears in the spring, joining McMorris, QB Ben Finley‍, WR Marquez Dortch‍ and OL Matthew Wykoff‍ as commitments in the late period.

Stay tuned for more on Scott’s signing.

I can't find any info related to his injury. Hopefully it wasn't too severe.

Wow, Marcus Scott is a high-potential stud of a player and exactly the kind of DB we need to match up with the quicker, shifter WRs on our schedule.

The staff has remade the DB room this offseason and competition there will be intense. It was a weakness last season (partly because of lack of DL pressure) but this year should be a huge strength.

I'd like another OL or DL or two but our portal recruiting this year has overall been exactly what people were asking for. Our staff clearly understands the importance of working the transfer portal to bolster the squad.

Welcome to the Cal family Mr. Scott!

Welcome, Marcus!

It seems the Cal staff is finally starting to fully utilize the transfer portal. We'll see how this translates on the field, but it's a promising development.
