The California Golden Bears currently have five defensive back commits in this class in Traveon Beck, Camryn Bynum, Josh Drayden, Nygel Edmonds and Marloshawn Franklin. It might seem excessive, but with three seniors (two starters) graduating in the secondary, Cedric Dozier transferring, and four regular rotation juniors set to graduate next season, all of them will be needed. The Bears have had to continue trending upward from the porous pass defense they've had to deal with the last few years.
So Cal is looking to close on a sixth defensive back commit. Enter San Marcos cornerback Terrell Burgess, who is set to make his decision tomorrow.
Change of plans... I will be announcing my commitment Thursday Jan. 28th. at 5:45 On KUSI! #StayTuned— #⃣BURGESS5⃣© (@TiTaniumT98) January 27, 2016
Burgess enjoyed the senior season recruiting surge, as his highlight tape simply crackled with energy and ability.
There are three Pac-12 schools he'll be choosing from:
- Cal: The Bears provided a great official visit, and California made a great final recruiting pitch. There are clear advantages afforded compared to the other two schools.
- Arizona: The Wildcats have attracted a lot of interest from the beginning; Burgess visited Tucson early. The Wildcats have plenty of playing time to offer, but Arizona have overhauled their defensive staff.
- Utah: The Utes have the saltiest defense of the bunch, so that has to elevate the Utes in certain ways.
This is your discussion thread for Burgess's decision!
