California added No. 13 to its commitment list on Wednesday night, as four-star linebacker Victor Egu (Concord, Calif./De La Salle) pledged to the Golden Bears.
Egu announced his commitment on his twitter page: "Officially committed to Cal #calbound"
The commitment is a big win for Cal, which adds the No. 22 outside linebacker in the country and one of the state's top uncommitted players. It also gives the Golden Bears another local standout, and one who earned scholarship offers from an impressive list of programs, including Arizona State, Boise State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon and Washington.
Egu has 24 tackles and four sacks for the De La Salle defense, which led the Spartans to yet another undefeated regular season. He is part of a terrific foursome of defensive standouts, along with USC commit Michael Hutchings, and undecided defensive end Austin Hooper and linebacker D.J. Moffitt.
The Golden Bears continue to do well in California, as 10 of their 13 commitments are from in-state prospects. Egu is the first outside linebacker in Cal's class
