Cal Football Recruiting: Tyler Foreman, Ray Davison, Riley Sorenson, Trey Cheek Updates

So a lot of stuff has gone down in the last few days in terms of Cal football recruiting. For those of you were hoping to see a little more excitement prior to NSD, you got it.

As always, check out our Cal recruiting board for all the latest updates on who we're recruiting and where they're going!

Tyler Foreman, Crespi Carmelite High School Safety, has decommitted from Wisconsin. Remember Foreman was specifically recruited by coach Buh when he was in Madison. Make of that what you will.

To add insult to injury, Foreman is claiming that the Badgers aren't even a possibility for him anymore. Ouch.

As of now, 247 Sports has Foreman most interested in Cal and UCLA.

We got a good shot at getting this guy.

Also, Foreman's teammate, outside linebacker/defensive end Raymond Davison, Northwestern commit, has had his offer pulled from Northwestern because he recently took an official to Cal.

Apparently, he was set on Northwestern until his visit to Berkeley.

Apparently-and this is pretty old school- Northwestern has a very firm policy on athletic commitments, even if they are just verbal. I guess commits are not allowed to go visit other schools after they commit to NW.

I hope we end up getting Davidson. He seems like a strong fit for our program. He is clearly is interested in academics judging by his school selections, and says he even wants to be an accountant.

Apparently Davidson and several other teammates will be visiting Cal not this weekend, but in the near future. I'm assuming the other teammates include Foreman, not sure who the other ones are.

Also, Arizona commit Tony Mekari is compelled to take a serious look at Cal now that he has been offered.

Here's what ESPN has to say on him:

"Mekari comes across as a tough and physical football player. He looks to predominately play offensive tackle and defensive end for his high school team, but at the college level he will likely slide inside to D-Tackle or offensively move to guard." -ESPN Analyst,

However, an Arizona beat writer-Jason Scheer- is doubtful that the visit will actually happen.

Brandon Arnold, a safety, and another prospect from Crespi Carmelite, just recently got an in-home visit from Cal. He may be another one of the Crespi guys who is coming up to visit with Davidson in the next few weeks.

Also, 3 star Safety/CB Patrick Enewally from Gahr High School recently got an in-home visit as well.

We know that Akins decommitted earlier this week, but it looks like Trey Cheek is still on board based on his tweets.

I'm sure Dykes didn't want to contact Cheek before he had the defensive coaches sorted out. Glad to have Cheek still with us.

Tustin High School linebacker, Edward Tandy, recently got an offer from Cal and has a visit scheduled in the coming weeks.

3 star Athlete, Darius Allensworth from Heritage High School, recently posted his senior year highlight tape prior to his knee injury. Allensworth was injured early in his season, and has to sit out the rest of the year.

He looks pretty nasty. Love to see him play corner or safety for us. Could definitely be a sleeper recruit.

Not so good. De La Salle DE/TE Austin Hooper is taking an official to Stanford this weekend. Not sure if Stanford has also offered Hooper a chance to play TE. If so, he may end up there because both of their starting tight ends are leaving for the draft.

Highly versatile player from Wilsonville High School, LB/DE/FB/HB Johnny Ragin the III, BYU commit, is seriously considering offers from both Iowa and at Cal at this point.

He has a Cal official visit this weekend.

Offensive Tackle from Santa Margartia High School, Riley Sorenson will be taking official visits to both Cal and Washington. He hasn't committed anywhere at this point, but says he'll do so after his visits.

Some good news. Aaron Cochran, massive offensive tackle from Buhach High School, will likely decide after his visit to Cal. For those of you who have been reading Golden Recruiting Wire, you know how quiet Cochran has been about his commitment status.

He also just got an offer from Vandy.

That's all for now. More news will be coming in on how these visits went over the next couple of weeks. Go Bears!
