Cal gets a huge offensive line commit. Buhach Colony OL Aaron Cochran will join his brother Matt in Berkeley.
The Cal Bears seem likely to start one Cochran on the offensive line in 2013, and they'll get a chance to possibly start the other one, too. That's right - younger brother Aaron Cochran decided to finalize his commitment to Cal earlier today, choosing the Bears over the likes of Notre Dame, Nebraska, Washington and Oklahoma in the process.

Cochran’s long-awaited commitment is a boost to the hopes of Cal fans everywhere – the 6'8, 350 behemoth should be the final centerpiece of a lineman heavy recruiting class, and could provide an immediate upgrade to one of the worst offensive lines in the country last season.
Here are his rankings across the four major recruiting services, and his highlight tape:
Scout: 3 star, 60th ranked tackle
247sports: 3 star (86), 57th ranked tackle, 84th ranked in California
Rivals: 3 star, 52nd ranked tackle, 67th ranked in California
ESPN: 4 star (82), 20th ranked tackle, 37th ranked in California
With Cochran now in the fold, the Bears have 6 OL commits for next season. Are you happy with how that has shaken out? And other recent developments like Tyler Foreman to UCLA, who do you want the Bears to still work on heading into signing day? Share your take in the comments.
