California WR flips from Boise to Cal 

January, 21, 2013
Boise State has done a very good job recruiting California over the years, but this past weekend proved what a challenge it can still be to hold onto verbal commitments when one of the in-state schools comes calling.

Wide receiver Jack Austin (Chino Hills, Calif./Chino Hills) had been committed to Boise State for months, but it took all of three weeks for the new coaching staff at Cal to reel him in.

"About three weeks ago, Coach [Tony] Franklin, the offensive coordinator, contacted me and asked me to meet with the coaches," Austin said. "They came in on a couple of in-home visits and on the last one, Coach [Sonny] Dykes invited me up on a trip."
