Thank you, sirs, and I will have another. Fresh off of a camp they held on campus Saturday, the Bears were in action again Sunday at Fullerton, where they added a second weekend commitment -- and a second offensive lineman -- thanks to Johnny Capra, out of Auburn.
Fight for California is such a nice phrase, and we got to hear them twice this weekend. Welcome, Johnny!
I have verbally committed to the Cal football family! Thank you Coach Dykes, Yenser, and CAL coaching staff for believing in me. #GoBears— Johnny Capra (@JohnnyCapra73) June 30, 2014
We'll of course get into the film later, but here's a fun fact from Cal Rivals about him that should get everybody excited:
Craziest thing about new #Cal commit Johnny Capra? Was a 1st team all-league OL last year and that was his FIRST-EVER playing on the O-line.— Cal Rivals (@CalRivals) June 30, 2014
A reported 3.75 GPA student, Capra is very, very excited about the academic program, as well:
Ah, and of course, I can't leave out this juicy detail -- he's got a younger brother, too, who we just offered yesterday. Already making inroads into the class of 201(7?), because it's never too early to do stuff like that.
Rivals: 3 star, 71st ranked player in California
Scout: 3 star, 91st ranked tackle
ESPN: Not ranked
247sports: Not ranked
Capra's rankings are odd because he isn't listed on the 247sports composite at all, but with senior years still to be played, I wouldn't worry too much about things like that at this juncture anyway.
Work's starting back up for me so I can't promise that I'll have a scouting report ready for Tuesday, but that's what we're looking at currently.
