    "Richard's is an athlete," Andreoli [John, St. John's Head Coach] said. "It was the kind of catch that an athlete makes, a ball-in-the-area catch. Athletes make that catch. They just have to be in the area, the ball doesn't have to be right on the numbers. If it's in the vicinity they'll got and get the ball. Athletes catch balls that wouldn't ordinarily be caught."

    Game clips w/ Thompson #2

Tedford & Company

  • Zach Kline, QB (Cal) {2012} verbally committed [19]
  • Richard RodgersIfo Ekpre-Olomu, CB Chino Hills (Chino Hills, CA) offered by Cal. He will be officially visiting Cal, Oregon, Stanford, Washington [20]. Cal & Oregon lead [$21]. 
  • Richard RodgersRichard Rodgers, TE (Cal) profiled [22].

    He’s a special talent,’’ said St. John’s coach John Andreoli. "His size, speed, and soft hands make him an unusually dangerous weapon. And he makes so many plays that don’t show up in the stat sheet. Whether he’s drawing two or three guys in coverage or breaking open a play with a downfield block, he impacts each and every play.’’ And he does so, like a number of his teammates, and hundreds of others in the area, as a two-way player, on both sides of the ball. Rodgers is also a terror at defensive end.

  • Jon Lewis, DE Klein Oak (Spring, TX) photo gallery [23]. Lewis is leaning towards Cal.
  • Stefan McClure, CB Vista (Vista, CA) came back from his official visit to Washington w/ no clear leaders. McClure will be coming to Cal for an unofficial visit. If the Golden Bears make it to a Bowl game McClure will also attend the Bowl practice [24].
  • Jalen JeffersonJalen Jefferson, ATH St Bonaventure (Ventura, CA) will be officially visiting his leaders Cal, Boise State, and Washington. He unofficially visited USC for Trojans' game against Virginia [25].
  • Brandon Wright, RB/DB Palo Verdes (Las Vegas, NV) profiled [26].

    Wright said he is weighing scholarship offers from California, Colorado, San Diego State and Utah, but the offer from Cal is in the ambiguous "athlete" position.

    "I’m trying to make a statement to colleges that I’m a running back," the 5-foot-11-inch, 190-pound Wright said. "For me, putting up 2,000 yards would be more than enough explanation."

    Wright plans by next week to begin scheduling official campus visits. He said he has no timetable for an oral commitment, which wouldn’t become binding until the Feb. 2 signing day.

    "Basically, whenever I feel comfortable, I’m going to go ahead and commit," he said.

    Wright said sticking at running back, playing in warm weather and how he meshes with a coaching staff will be keys in his recruitment.

    "I’m hoping to go somewhere that’s close, where people can notice I’m a running back and not move me to another position," Wright said.

  • Cyrus HobbiCyrus Hobbi, OG Saguaro (Scottsdale, AZ) contacted by Cal on September 1st. After visiting Nebraska officially on October 16, Hobbi will most likely not take anymore visits until his senior season is over [27].

    "All the ones that called today are the main schools," said Hobbi." Cal, Nebraska, and USC too. I have pretty close contact with those coaches and now I'm just looking to see where I will fit in best. I want to really evaluate those schools on my visits and I will likely announce after my season. I may announce at the Under Armour game, I'm not sure. I'm just ready to get my season started, hit someone in a different colored jersey."

  • Danny SheltonDanny Shelton, DT Auburn (Auburn, WA) has Cal, Washington, Oregon, UCLA as leaders. USC is no longer under consideration [28].
  • DeAnthony ArnettDeAnthony Arnett, WR Saginaw (Saginaw, MI) may still be considering Michigan State [$29]. Arnett is officially visiting USC, Oklahoma, California and Tennessee [30].
  • Brendon BigelowBrendon Bigelow, RB Central East (Fresno, CA) isn't 100% and is out at least until mid-season [31]. He could be out for the year [32]. Bigelow's recovery from his ACL reconstructive surgery is also becoming a media issue regarding privacy for players in the Central Unified District [33].

    Already among the top 15 prospects in the state of California, Bigelow is someone to keep an eye on because a healthy senior season could see him rise even higher. The Washington commit suffered an ACL injury during his junior season, but if he can bounce back and stay healthy he has the tools to be a home run threat any time he touches the ball. He could break into the top 10 among this class of running backs. A healthy Bigelow could be considered one of the quickest and fastest backs in the 2011 class. He can burst through the hole with great footwork or he get thin and can slide through small creases, presenting a difficult target for defenders to get a clean shot on. Plus, when he is able to get to second level or turn the corner he has breakaway speed. A dangerous player in space, he also has great hands and can contribute as a receiving target. He does not have great size and may not -- at least initially -- be able to carry the load, but he can create big plays [34].

  • Marqise LeeMarqise Lee, ATH Serra (Gardena, CA) offered by USC [35]. Lee & George Farmer are extremely close [36].
  • Viliami MoalaViliami Moala, DT Grant Union (Sacramento, CA) clip [37].

  • Frank Clark, ATH Glenville (Akron, OH) is generating interest from UCLA. Clark visited UCLA during the summer on the same west coast trip to Cal [$38].
  • Aaron GreenAaron Green, RB James Madison (San Antonio, TX) will be officially visiting Florida State this weekend [39].
  • Kyle Boehm, QB (Cal), Byron Marshall, RB Valley Christian (San Jose, CA) {2012}, Amir Carlisle, RB The King's Academy (San Jose, CA) named Bay Area High School Playmakers [40].
  • Devon BlackmonTodd BarrJason GibsonDevon Blackmon, ATH, Todd Barr, DT, Jason Gibson, OLB visited UCLA unofficially for Bruins' game against Stanford [41].
  • Bryce Treggs, WR St John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) {2012} is coached by his dad Brian Treggs [42]. He is adapt at making things happen in space and create yards after catch.

    Recruiting has steadily picked up as well. Arizona State and Stanford have already offered and mainly all Pac-10 schools along with Alabama, Miami, Colorado State and Northwestern are showing interest. Early on, Treggs said he’d like to stay in the Pac-10 but now is considering all options - and realizes it’s still very early in his recruitment.

    "He’s only a junior and he has a long way to go," Brian Treggs said. "He’s open. In the beginning he wanted to stay in the Pac-10 and now he’s starting to open his mind up to pursue other options to see what’s best for him.

    "He understands it’s too early to tell and that he should take a closer analysis at the schools to see who provides the best academic and athletic opportunity for him. That could change from year to year, you just never know."

  • Miles ShulerShaq Thompson, ATH {2012} interviewed [43]. He's looking to go undefeated and win state. Thompson is a five-star recruit according to [44].

  • George Atkinson IIIGeorge Atkinson III, ATH Granada (Livermore, CA) pledged to Notre Dame w/ Josh [45]. Cal eliminated.


Montgomery's Crew

  • David Kravish, PF 6-9/200 Lee's Summit North (Lee's Summit, MO) is expected to visit Cal on September 24. [46].

    Kravish said he’s looking forward to meeting his potential teammates.

    "I want to just to get a feel for how the players get along," Kravish said "Then I’ll know if he’s going to recruit a bunch of knuckleheads. Knowing coach Montgomery, I don’t think that’s the case."

     Asked to describe his game, Kravish said: "Every coach I’ve talked to has told me what they like about my game is how I  get up and down the court. They tell me they like my motor and they say I’ve got some good spring. I can shoot, so I  don’t have to be pinned under the basket. I can face up, handle the ball and I’m a good passer."
