Someone to keep an eye on is Dallas (Tx.) Skyline wide receiver Carlos Strickland. Strickland has long had his eye on the Bears and seems to have put Cal pretty high up on his list.
"I just got offered by Cal," Strickland said via text. "I"m soooo excited!! Cal is definitely in my top three at this point without a doubt. I love the tradition and always wanted to be a part of it. Now I just need to get out there and check them out."
Strickland just recently picked up offers from North Texas, Notre Dame, and UNLV. LSU, Oklahoma State, TCU have all offered as well.
Dallas (Tx.) Bishop Dunne wide receiver Adrian "A.D." Miller gets a Cal offer, as does his teammate defensive tackle Darrion Daniels. Miller has offers from Colorado, Illnois, Oregon State, Southern Miss and Tulsa. Daniels has offers from the big names (Baylor, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas) so he's probably a longer shot.

Another fun name: Cedar Hills (Tx.) wide receiver DaMarkus Lodge, who already has offers from the five major Texas schools, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma and UCLA. It would be nice to land a talent like Lodge.
Texas was once seen as the leader for star Cedar Hill wide receiver Damarkus Lodge. Where do the Horns sit now... http://t.co/4OC0fMBkRM

Horn (Tx.) offensive lineman Connor Dyer has a Cal offer along with two dozen other major football programs. He recently received a dream offer from Miami but LSU and Arkansas also got in the mix. T

Flower Mound (Tx.) offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland has Arkansas as his overwhelming favorite.
Mesquite (Tx.) Poteet linebacker Malik Jefferson has all the major offers out there and seems very interested in local programs like Texas, Texas A&M and Baylor.
Finally, a week after Bellaire (Tx.) Episcopal running back Tyreik Gray put Cal in his top three along with Oklahoma and Baylor...
