SHOUT OUT: NEWPORT HARBOR OLB/WR/TE CECIL WHITESIDE COMMITS TO CAL
Here's his Rivals Profile
As you can see, they've rated him as the No. 91 overall prospect in the country. He's a true athlete and has shown an ability to rush the passer, drop back in coverage, block punts, and even deflect passes at the LoS. Even more, he's dominated one of toughest leagues in SoCal as a rising 4-year starter. As football guys like to say, "HE'S A PLAYMAKER." And, he's got a ton of power.
He could bring his considerable talents to Cal Track & Field as well. He is an elite Discus thrower (No. 3 in the nation IN HIS JUNIOR YEAR). He also works with Tony Gonzalez's former coach, who said he could be one of the best prospects ever!

Quotes from ESPNU Recruiting:
"When I think about Cal, it's just a school I'm very comfortable with and I know I'll be happy there the next four or five years. I went to their Junior Day and really liked it there and it's just a great fit for me."
However, it does not appear that Whiteside's recruitment is finalized, "I still might take my visits in the fall. Cal has really high academic requirements so I might do visits just as a backup. Arizona, Colorado, Arizona State and USC are a few other schools I'm looking at but Cal is definitely my first choice and where I want to be."
You guys know me: I get pumped about recruits. To be honest, I can't think of many more prospects in the nation I'd get more excited about. I MEAN, HE'S HUMBLE TO BOOT. He and Jay Guy will be stars for the Bears in the very near future.
