It didn’t take Cal long to get things rolling on its monster recruiting weekend. Wideout Darius Powe of Lakewood, Calif., confirmed via text this weekend that he’s a Bear.

Powe, one of the top receivers in the region and an Under Armour All-American, tripped to Oregon State and was also looking hard at UCLA and Utah. The Beavers appeared to be in a good spot, and Cal didn’t get heavily involved with the receiver until an in-home visit just two weeks ago.

“I’m a Bear, it’s true,” Powe said via text. “I just like it here, and I’m blessed by the opportunity to play for a school like Cal.”

We’ll have more on Powe’s decision following the weekend, but nice early momentum for the Bears in what promises to be a huge couple of days for the program.
