Curley Young joins Puskas as the second OLB recruit to come to Cal. Curley boasts offers from Arizona, Rice, Air Force, and Army.
He is a composite 3* per 247 and Rivals. Also, per 247 he was predicted to go to ex-Cal HC Sonny Dykes’ SMU with 100% certainty.
Per his Hudl page he runs a 4.69 40. He is long and played primarily with his hand on the ground in HS, rushing from primarily 4-3 DE spot but has had plays as a 3-4 OLB. He projects to make the same transition into a fulltime 3-4 OLB as Alex Funches, let’s hope he will make the same impact on the field as his senior and fellow Texan.
Note that his long arms are a tremendous physical tool for a rusher since it allows him to be able to keep his chest clean when engaging with OL.
Welcome to Cal! Go Bears!
