Gabe King, one of Cal's top recruits for 2010, wrote an article on BearInsider introducing himself to Cal fans and thanking the fans and program for this opportunity.
Cal was first on my list for the longest time because I love Coach Tosh Lupoi. He is the realest, most down-to-earth coach I have ever met, and if anyone is going to yell and scream obscene things at me, I'd feel honored if it was him. He has shown that he goes 137% percent for his guys and that made me feel even more comfortable with my decision.
Being a long way from family, it was essential that I felt at home where I'd be playing and at home I felt being with Coach. Choosing Cal was also easy because it was the only place wherein if I could no longer play football I would still feel happy with life while attending college.
The players at Cal are unlike any others I have met throughout my whole recruiting process. Being a part of a family like this seemed too good to be true. I feel as though Cal chose me as much as I chose them and for that I am truly greatful.
After the jump four sports post high APR scores, the SAHPC nears another milestone, SportingNews rates Pac-10 QBs, and more
The NCAA has recognized men's golf, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, and women's volleyball for their achievement in the latest Academic Progress Rates.
- Construction of the SAHPC is coming along nicely. The final concrete pour for the exterior will take place two weeks from today. This photo gallery provides some images of the latest construction.
- Crumpacker gives his take on the AT&T Park decision. The more he thinks about it, the more he likes the decision.
- The recent television schedule (with all the Thursday, Friday, and late Saturday timeslots) illustrates the new Pac-10 motto for coverage: any and all coverage is good--the more the better.
- Ted Miller looks at the top position battles for Pac-10 teams. Other than Marvin Jones, it's unclear who will become Cal's other starting receivers. Thankfully, there is no shortage of available candidates.
- Two writers for Sporting News rank the Pac-10 quarterbacks. Both rate Riley as the seventh best in the conference. He has the tools and coaching to be excellent, but his own inconsistency coupled with the inconsistency of his offensive line have limited his achievements so far.
