Cal football is not done with their 2016 recruiting. The Golden Bears have an issue they'd like to address before they move on fully to 2017, and it's getting more linebackers.
Cal is still pretty thin at this position going into next season. Jalen Jefferson graduated. Michael Barton moved onto Arizona. Jake Kearney medically retired. Nathan Broussard decided against another year of eligibility. So the Bears have three linebackers that saw significant reps that are back this season: Hardy Nickerson, Ray Davison and Devante Downs. There will be competition on that two deep chart this season from plenty of new faces.
So Cal is looking for a late addition to their class. It might come in the form of American River College linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk, who is visiting Berkeley this weekend.

The other competition for Kunaszyk? The Colorado Buffaloes. More from Rivals.
"Colorado and Cal are my top two schools. Those are the two schools that I am planning to decide between," Kunasyzk said. "Patience has worked out for me and now I have two great opportunities at two places I could see myself playing at. It is going to be a tough decision."
Both Cal and Colorado are in need of sturdy defenders. Kunaszyk looks very solid already and could see significant reps this season based on his tape; his year in junior college have given him solid experience and conditioning. He's also a local prospect--American River is in Sacramento, and Kunaszyk hails from Roseville.
Can the Bears get another linebacker?
