Cal knows that this has to be a class heavy on offensive linemen to build their foundation for the future up front. Cal’s offensive line is heavy on upperclassmen, and the Bears know they’ll need to stack up the bodies to feel comfortable in who they have going forward.
One particular target is Chris Murray. The Santa Ana (Ca.) offensive guard is stacking up offers, one of which originated from Cal. It was one of the last offers made by Sonny Dykes and his coaching staff before their dismissal.

It seems like every day, a new offer flies in for Murray and he recently hit the double digit mark. A few of his more recent offers include TCU, Washington and UCLA and Murray said he plans to get out to all three of them at some point in the coming months.
Murray holds offers from programs like Arizona, Cal, Washington, UCLA, Utah and Washington State on the West Coast, as well as TCU, Texas Tech and Mississippi State. Murray is a three-star prospect according to 247Sports Composite, ranked as the 32nd best offensive guard and the 73rd best prospect in California.
Murray isn’t the only Mater Dei lineman that Cal is garnering serious interest from in a giant capacity. Cal is also going hard after his teammate Tommy Brown, who is considered perhaps the best offensive tackle in the West.
