Yep, National Signing Day was literally a week and a half ago, and the Golden Bears are already kickstarting the 2017 recruiting class with all sorts of hijinx. Elite Junior Day is today, and will be one of the biggest recruiting days for the Bears for the spring session.

Four star Rancho Cucamonga (Ca.) athlete Jaylon Redd is coming on up. Redd is being recruited by the Bears as a running back, according to an interview he did with Recruiting News Guru. Other squads seem to like him at cornerback. Redd has early offers from most of the Pac-12 programs, as well as Michigan and Oklahoma.

Three star Bakersfield (Calif.) defensive end Gabriel Cherry was offered by Cal early, and the Bears feel pretty good here. Cherry is a Cal legacy and could be one of the first commits in the 2017 class.

Three star Kingsburg (Calif.) OL Andrew Vorhees is coming on up. Cal was the first program to offer Vorhees way back in June. Several Pac-12 programs like UCLA, Washington State, Arizona, and Colorado have already offered.

Three star Cathedral (Los Angeles) wide receiver Jamire Calvin makes the trip up. Calvin already has a host of programs that have offered him early. Oregon State, Utah, Washington and Washington State have offered early.

Santa Margarita (Calif.) three-star WR Grant Calcaterra is heading up to Berkeley. Boston College, Kentucky, Louisville, Illinois and Purdue have offered early, and Calcaterra feels like a big inside wideout at the next level who could be a critical blocker.

Three star Buena Park (Calif.) athlete Jeremiah Hawkins is coming up. Hawkins was offered by Cal at the beginning of the month.

Two other names to watch that haven't been offered yet: El Cerrito athlete Damon Cole and San Jose (Ca.) Bellarmine Prep linebacker Jackson Burrill.
