Can we get a few more Bears?

The California Golden Bears are finishing their class off with a flourish, landing the commitments of four players (athlete Keith Washington, wide receiver Brandon Singleton, wide receiver Carlos Strickland, offensive lineman Patrick Mekari) his past week. How will they wrap up their recruiting class?

The Bears have two visitors this week: The committed Mekari, and the still deciding Honolulu (Hi.) Punahou offensive lineman Semisi Uluave.

As for Uluave, he still has a lot of decision-making left in the process. Texas Tech, UCLA and Oregon have all drawn significant interest. The Bears seem to have as good a shot as any.

Cal commit and Atlanta (Ga.) Dunwoody offensive tackle Nick Buchanan is the big recruit to keep an eye on in terms of potential decommits. Cal has already lost one lineman in Johnny Capra and can ill-afford looking for another replacement this late in the cycle. Florida will be his final official, with Georgia still applying the pressure.

Cal commit and Little Rock (Ark.) defensive end Luc Bequette has thrown an eleventh hour curve ball. Bequette is taking a last minute visit to Florida.

Another priority recruit to watch out for is Gainesville (Ga.) athlete Chris Williamson. Williamson will be making a crucial trip to Florida this weekend along with Buchanan, and then is expected to make his decision Monday. CGB will have coverage of his event. Florida has the late buzz.

In the case that Buchanan decides to go elsewhere, the Bears might have to look at any other options they can find.  Cal has supposedly offered Boise State offensive line commit Eric Quevedo from West Covina as a potential backup. It's a long shot though.

It does not look like Quevedo is taking a visit and will stick with his Boise State pledge, so even if Cal has room this is probably going to be a rough conversion.
