June 2010 | May 2010

Quick hits

  • Tedford & Co got their QB recruit - Kyle Boehm [1].
  • Cal scholarship offers went out to (in no specific order)
    • Rahim Cassell, OLB Lakewood (Lakewood, CA)
    • Charles Jackson, DB Klein Collins (Spring, TX)
    • Cody Kessler, QB Centennial (Bakersfield, CA)

    • Jacob Welter, OG Monte Vista (Danville, CA) - confirmed by BI/Scout.com
    • Jon Lewis, DT Klein Oak (Spring, TX)

    • Daniel Lasco, RB The Woodlands (Woodlands, TX)
    • Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE Gig Harbor (Gig Harbor, WA) is back on the Golden Recruiting Board (HT elbarto83). Seferian-Jenkins has already accepted an invite to the US Army All-American Bowl for next January. There are some questions about Seferian-Jenkins' straight-away speed in the highlight [2], even though he has been clocked ~ 4.65-4.7 in 40yd dashes.
    • No new updates on Avery Walls this month, hence the gray background color.

Quarterbacks

  • HT ttgiang15 [3] & Hydrotech [4] for excellent analysis of Boehm's highlights
  • Tedford & Co offered Cody Kessler after the Elite 11 camp at Berkeley. Kyle Boehm pledged to Coach Ludwig the following day.
