Four-Star Wide Receiver Erik Brown Commits to Cal

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

For a program in dire need of a recruiting spark, this news comes at a welcome time.

Cal fans, I'm sure, are above gloating that the newest commit comes at the expense of the flea-factories o' the northwest... (Please do your best in the comments.)


Brown is listed at 6'0, 170 lbs and has been ranked as high as the #22 WR prospect in the country.  SBN Recruiting authority Bud Elliot had this report:

Brown is a smooth mover with excellence balance. While he has above-average speed, he's really more quick than fast. He runs clean routes and has a great understanding of how to use pace and rhythm to break down a defensive back's cushion to set up whatever route he intends to run.

On tape Brown shows savvy in attacking coverage. Versus cover three he'll often stem his route vertically, sit down in the void and leave a nice throwing lane for his quarterback.

On vertical routes, Brown uses his burst to the ball to create deep separation. He does a great job tracking the passes down field. In his routes he's able to break down his frame and explode out of his breaks to get open in the short to intermediate game. He has very quick hands, able to immediately shoot them away from his frame in order to pluck the ball away from his body.

In many ways, he's reminiscent of Bryce Treggs.


Welcome to Cal, Erik!  Go Bears!
