The grandson of of the GOAT is coming to Berkeley. Biaggio Ali-Walsh faxed in his letter of he all-purpose back put up gaudy numbers in high school and was named the Nevada Player of the year as a junior.

He is incredibly fast, and if that isn’t enough for you to like him, he is also the grandson of the GOAT boxer Muhammad Ali, and a male model to boot. Read these two great profiles from Bleacher Report and Sports Illustrated to learn more about the relationship between the two of them.

Ali-Walsh is ranked as the 11th best all-purpose back and the 9th best prospect in the state of Nevada. He held offers from Arizona, Colorado, Louisville, Nevada, Vanderbilt and also an Ivy League offer from Dartmouth. Below are his junior highlights.

With Tre Watson and Vic Enwere nearing the end of their amazing careers as Cal running backs, Cal will have to replenish its talent in the backfield. Billy McCrary and Zion Echols both looked really good in fall camp, and Ali-Walsh should be another young talent for head coach Justin Wilcox to build around.
