Cal's biggest recruiting target is Ivan Rabb, the local Bishop O'Dowd product who could immediately elevate the Bears back to a good team real quickly. Rabb is likely to have the Bears in his final decision, along with Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, and UCLA.
Rabb visited Arizona recently, and then made the trek to Berkeley on Saturday night to see how the Bears did. Let's take a look at how the visit went via social media.
The Cal Bench was up to the challenge of making Rabb feel welcome. The Bench put together a Rabb giant head.

Rabb seemed to be a big fan of the giant head, according to various media scuttlebutt.
Conversation in the press room right now: apparently Ivan Rabb was holding the blow up poster of his own face for a few seconds. Ha.— Lindsay Brauner (@lindzcatharine) January 25, 2015
They also had a blowup of Rabb's jersey.

The chants were coming out in full force.

Rabb was seen meeting with the Cal coaches after the game.
Yep that's Ivan Rabb with the entire Cal coaching staff. He did not talk to any Arizona coaches tonight. pic.twitter.com/RGX2glZ7aE— Lindsay Brauner (@lindzcatharine) January 25, 2015
It's clear to anyone watching the Bears that Rabb would be so so ready to play and immediately become the number one option on the Bears. He'd become a perfect four to supplement what should be a strong returning group of wing men and complement our developing centers.
There's plenty of time left in the recruiting cycle, but it's good to see Rabb up here on a regular basis.
