After tearing his ACL during a camp this summer, it was certain that ESPN 300 athlete Devante Downs (Mountlake Terrace, Wash./Mountlake Terrace) wouldn't be making any noise on the field this season. But on Thursday, the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder made plenty of noise off of it, when he announced his commitment to Cal.

Downs, the nation's No. 209 prospect, took an unofficial visit to Cal in mid-May and said ever since then, he's been thinking hard about the Golden Bears.
