Welcome to Cal Evan!

Defensive end Evan Weaver has faxed in his commitment to Cal. Oregon tried to make a move at the last minute, but Weaver stayed firm to the Bears. In terms of absolute gems, Weaver is near the top.

Weaver brings the type of skillset that Cal so desperately needs in their defense. Weaver is a large human being who is relentless in his one pursuit in life--attacking things that are wearing a different jersey than him. He's one of those players who is flying under the radar and could be the steal of the class.

Weaver is built to wreck opposing offensive lineman and he's already getting conditioned at a high level. Take a look at how much this man can lift and just imagine what he'll be capable of a year from now.  Weaver was named the state player of the year by the News Tribune, racked up 122 tackles, 36 TFL and 22.5 sacks. He has drawn comparisons to Travis Long from his head coach.

Here are the video highlights for Weaver.
