Nifae Lealao, Sacramento (Ca.) Capital Christian defensive end
Hey, remember when we told you Nifae Lealao was going to visit Cal despite being a Stanfurd commit? That's changed I tell you, in the best possible way!

Lealao has been committed to Stanfurd since September, but it doesn't look like it worked out. Their loss could be Cal's gain; the Bears would get much needed line depth to ensure they're replenished for the long-term as well as the short-term (with the JUCO players already committed, like David Davis, Trevor Kelly and Jonathan Johnson).
Lealao does hold offers from all of the remaining 11 Pac-12 schools though, which probably means he could get the full-court press from a lot of top teams out there. Boise State, BYU, Ole Miss, and Wisconsin all have offers too.
Noah Westerfield, Frisco (Tx.) Wakeland defensive end
You get the feeling that the coaching staff is trying to secure Westerfield after he had to break his commitment with Northwestern to visit us.
Home visit with @CALCoachDykes and Coach Chachere was a success! Both great guys🏈🏈🏈#CalFootball#GoldenBears pic.twitter.com/WPz12Fr73L— Noah Westerfield (@WesterfieldNoah) January 22, 2014
Marcus Griffin, Bellevue (Wa.) defensive tackle
Another prominent defensive line talent has changed up his future visits. Notre Dame is out of the picture, but Arizona will be getting an official instead.

Arizona, Cal, Mississippi State and Washington State currently are looking like the final four for Griffin when he announces on Signing Day.
Shay Fields, Bellflower (Ca.) St. John Bosco wide receiver
His Twitter profile has him down to Cal, Colorado and Boise State.

Fields could decide between the three schools after his final visits.
