Video Highlights: 4-star Cal Commit WR Mavin Anderson

Get to know the future Bear a bit better than you do now

Mavin Anderson is committed for the California Golden Bears Class of 2021 and is rated as a top wide receiver prospect in this upcoming class. He was a big get for head coach Justin Wilcox and Co., standing as the nation’s 188th-best overall prospect and 30th-best wide receiver, according to 247Sports.

The 247Sports evaluation of Anderson is perhaps even better, comparing him to former Fresno State standout and current Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams.

Strong frame with a running back type body but projects best as a receiver. An explosive athlete who has battled injuries but was healthy as a junior and had a solid season. He has good short area quickness and long speed and clocked a 11.0-100m back as a freshman. Looked primed to run in the 10.5-100m range this year before spring sports were shut down. Is good after the catch and is able to use his strength to create separation. Runs well after the catches and has strong hands as well. Isn’t afraid to go over the middle and is the kind of receiver you can move around and play in the slot and out wide. Can continue to improve as a route runner and showing more explosiveness getting in and out of his breaks. Projects as an impact upper tier Power 5 starter and future mid-round NFL draft pick.

He committed back in February and will see his senior year at Mission Viejo High School as the state of California’s 17th-best player for this class. He had over 10 scholarship offers from some of the best Power-5 football programs in the country but chose to stay out west with the Bears.

And now we can get to know him better:
