For those of you looking to catch up on recruiting, here's a quick overview. Thanks to Jeff Faraudo for his update from the Sonny Dykes media teleconference.

Cal has currently filled up to 24 recruiting commits. The Bears are looking to close on several more prospects and finish up with around 28 players.

Dykes mentions the following positions as possibilities.

Obviously, there could be potential decommits, so it's quite possible there could be other surprises at other positions (Victor Viramontes?). But right now those are the positions to watch for Cal's final commitments.

At least nine will be entering Cal this incoming semester and be on campus for spring practice: Quarterback Max Gilliam, running back Derrick Clark, athlete Melquise Stovall, wide receivers Jordan Duncan and Jordan Veasy, offensive linemen Jake Curhan and Dwayne Wallace, defensive back Marloshawn Franklin, and defensive end Rusty Becker. Barring some drastic circumstances, expect all of them to be Golden Bears, with some of them to actively compete for starting positions.

Dykes cited Wallace particularly as a potential prospect who could compete at the opening at right guard with Jordan Rigsbee graduating. Patrick Mekari and Kamryn Bennett are also expected to be in the mix. Semisi Uluave is also reportedly coming back.
