With the untimely deaths of Barbaro and Anna Nicole Smith, I wasn’t sure if we should post anymore. But I thought, for Cal sports, we should soldier on. For Cal Sports.
I am not the recruiting master that so many others are. Even before the Ayoob debacle, I wasn’t really into it and now I feel like having Vietnam-esque flashbacks to Ayoob anytime recruiting is brought up. But I thought it interesting to link to this video about the 2005 recruiting class. You might want to block your eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and soul for the minute or so that they gush all over Joey Boy Ayoob. But after that, it’s safe. That class has some total studs like DeSean and Bishop. And some guys who hopefully will become studs for us going forward, such as SydQuan and Follett. So, enjoy that video. It is about 4 minutes long and has a lot on DeSean.
Also, as I noted, I don’t know too much about recruiting. But I do happen to know one of Matt Summers-Gavin’s coaches at SI. So, I contacted him to ask him about the inside scoop on one of our newest Golden Bears. It’s not much, but here it is:
"matt is about 6′6 275, and a great athlete. fast dunk a basketball…..etc
he still has tons of room to grow
his first step is the best i’ve ever seen. he will most likely play guard at cal. notre dame (and other high profile colleges) wanted him as a center.
he was lineman of the year in the WCAL and was a key figure in us winning our first WCAL title in 40 years and our first ever CCS title."
Also, ESPN.com has a poll on their front page about what the best highlight of the ESPN Era (how self-absorbed!). The Play is one of them and last I checked was winning with 32% of the vote. Go Bears!
Lastly, it looks like rain throughout the weekend. Not good for baseball this Saturday. Perhaps next Saturday, then. !!!
