Golden Recruit Darren Ervin Commits to Cal


Darren Ervin from Lamar (Houston, Texas) is Tedford & Co's first verbal pledge in the 2011 class.

BearInsider.com's full report on Ervin's Junior Day -

"I was able to sit down with the Cal coaches and we talked about what I was looking for in a school," said Ervin. "They have everything I like. It's a great area, a great program and their academics are some of the best around. I'm thinking about studying engineering and they're the No. 1 engineering program in the country."

He played quarterback, receiver and running back as a junior and is being recruited as an athlete.

Scout.com has the following notes -

STRENGTHS
Balance
Cutback Ability
Elusiveness

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Power
Size
Tackle-Breaking Ability
A finesse runner and not a power runner, he is around 5'8 so he is not a large back. Does a great job of picking his hole and then accelerating into it. On runs between the tackles he runs square and can lower his shoulder low enough to punish a defender. On outside runs he runs with loose hips and can chop his feet to change directions inside or out. 

Junior rushing stats from MaxPreps -

Car: 142 Yds: 716 Avg: 5.04 Y/G: 71.6 Long: 40 TD: 10

Ervin was selected as 1st Team All-District RB.
