The California Golden Bears have a ton more recruiting to do. One of their biggest targets: Tight end Camren McDonald, the decommit from the USC Trojans.
McDonald visited Cal this past weekend. He has many good things to say about the Bears.
"I'm going to visit Cal," McDonald said. "I like Cal a lot, they have been recruiting me for a while now so I'm excited to get out there and check things out.
Other programs to watch for the Long Beach Poly standout: UCLA with Chip Kelly on board, Washington up north, and apparently Georgia wants to get in on the mix. Nebraska and Texas A&M received official visits, but given both programs are changing coaches, you have to feel like Cal is in a decent spot.
McDonald (three stars, 0.8881) is ranked as the 14th best tight end in the 2018 recruiting class and 41st in the state of California. McDonald would be the second tight end Cal would try and land a commitment for, joining McCallan Castles.
After the injury to Ray Hudson (who sounds like he’ll return in 2018), with Ben Moos, Kyle Wells, Jake Ashton, and Gavin Reinwald, Cal had a hard group of workers but no standout tight end they could rely on in 2017. McDonald could very well be that player going forward if he commits.
