OL Cameron Hunt decommits from Cal, will sign with Oregon

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Perhaps the best commit of the 2013 Cal football recruiting class, Cameron Hunt, is flipping to Oregon.

Well, it finally happened.

After months of being a soft verbal and flirting with other schools - including the likes of Ohio State and Michigan - Cameron Hunt's National Signing Day ceremony will be relatively suspenseless, as he will only confirm a decision many Cal fans had expected for quite some time. Rather than take his talents to Berkeley this fall, the Corona, California native will instead head even further northward, to Eugene, Oregon.

GoldenBearReport has learned that 4-star Centennial offensive lineman Cameron Hunt officially decommitted from California on Thursday and will sign with Oregon on Wednesday, National Signing Day.

The country's 18th ranked o-lineman, Hunt committed to Cal back on July 7th, but re-opened his recruitment following the firing of head coach Jeff Tedford and Cal offensive line coach Jim Michalczik.

Cameron seemed to indicate that he wasn't really committed to Cal after the new coaching regime took over.

There is no denying that having Hunt migrate over to the Ducks is a major blow. Many recruiting services had him as the best player in Cal's 2013 class, and the Bears will likely tumble a spot or two simply for losing him. Still, Hunt's decommitment should not invalidate an otherwise solid group of linemen that Sonny Dykes recruited this year, a group that still contains the massive Aaron Cochran - among others. While Hunt would've undoubtedly helped, no one player makes or breaks a recruiting class, and the Bears will still bring in five other cubs to play up front.

Best of luck to Cameron up in Oregon [except when playing Cal, of course].
