Cal football recruiting: Marcus Griffin Signing Day decision, Shay Fields decommits from USC

Cal Bears Online

The recruiting news is flying all over the field.

Cal recruiting is make or break for Sonny Dykes this season. Dykes can maybe afford one more bad season, but definitely not two. These players have to get on the field and contribute immediately to offset all the losses this team has struggled with this season.

Here are updates on some of the big recruits.

Marcus Griffin, Bellevue (Wa.) defensive tackle

Griffin seemed to enjoy a solid visit to Cal this weekend, but big players are scooping in to try and get in on the action.  Griffin's final two visits will take him to Notre Dame on January 24th and Mississippi State on January 31st.

Decision day will come on National Signing Day! Washington State and Arizona might be in the mix right along with Cal and the other two schools.

Griffin is one of those must-win battles. Cal needs to figure out who exactly will be coaching him to try and close the deal before the first week of February rolls around.

Shay Fields, Bellflower (Ca.) St. John Bosco wide receiver

Cal has already landed their big receiving recruit in Erik Brown, but are still on the look out for good wide receivers wherever they can find them. One possibility is Shay Fields, who has been with the Trojans for awhile but has been sniffing around at other schools. He officially reopened his recruitment earlier today.

Koa Farmer, Sherman Oaks (Ca.) Notre Dame safety

Farmer is attracting interest from Vanderbilt (James Franklin's old school), Penn State (James Franklin's new school), and now just got a Wisconsin offer.

Farmer has been publicly quiet on his recruitment for awhile. We shall see if the Badgers mess things up.

Tre Watson, Corona (Ca.) Centennial running back

UCLA seems to be a little bit cooler on Watson now that they have Nathan Starks, but that's just opened the door for Washington to begin their pursuit.

Watson will visit Washington this weekend.

Troy Bacon, Apple Valley (Ca.) Oak Hills offensive guard

Aaand your Da Vinci Code tweet of the day.

That being said, our thoughts and prayers are with Bacon for the following Tweet.

Vic Enwere, Sugar Land (Tx.) Fort Bend Austin running back

Enwere got an offer from Vanderbilt. That's cool.
