Which recruit came to Cal with the least fanfare (i.e. diamond in the rough) and ended up with the most prestigious collegiate career? (prospects who literally had no buzz, so that disqualifies anyone with 4 stars)
LeonPowe: Paws - he was called "the worst recruit in the Pac 10" and ended up the Pac10 offensive player of the year and led Cal to the Citrus Bowl and a number 7 ranking.
Vlad Belo: I agree with Leon Powe here: Mike Pawlawski is the answer to this one. When a magazine calls you "The Worst Recruit in the Pac-10" and you end up raising the program from the dumpster to a top-10 team -- while winning conference player of the year honors -- I'd say you were vastly underrated.
