Cal back in race for four-star receiver

Cal is among the top competitors for Pasadena receiver Jamire Calvin. Can Cal land the talented athlete?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

After an extremely successful recruiting season in terms of wide receivers, head coach Sonny Dykes and his crew are back at it on the recruiting trail trying to lock up talented athletes for the future of the receiver rotation.

One of the main targets for the 2017 cycle appears to be Jamire Calvin, a four-star wideout out of Pasadena, California.

After landing both Melquise Stovall and Demetris Robertson in the 2016 class, Cal has two impact wideouts for at least the next three years. The Bear Raid does, however, require about 7-8 receivers to be rotates in and out, so extra bodies are always welcome.

Calvin seems to be leaning elsewhere right now, but a good showing from Cal this year could be enough to convince the talented prospect that he could have a home in Berkeley. If the offense continues to put up 50 points and successfully run the spread offense, a lot of high-end offensive talent could find its way to Cal. Landing Calvin would be a nice start, but Dykes is going to have to draw a lot of talented bodies to the bay to continue Cal's upward trend in recruiting.
