The Bears are expected to bring in about 20 players next week in what will likely be the most star-studded visit weekend for any school out West this year. This weekend isn’t bad either as tight end Taylor McNamara (San Diego, Calif./Westview) and a handful of other talented players coming in as well.
• Athlete Derrick Woods (Inglewood, Calif.) just added Cal to his list in the last couple of weeks and the Bears are now in his top two along with Oklahoma.
• Daje Johnson (Pflugerville, Texas./Hendrickson) is a TCU commit and solid with the Horned Frogs, but reports are he could be in Berkeley. Johnson is the one the fastest players in the nation and a very talented cover corner.
• Another committed player planning to visit is offensive lineman Christian Okafor (Houston, Texas./Westbury). Okafor, a Texas Tech commit, has already visited Stanford and Arizona State and looks very open right now.
• Five-star athlete Stefon Diggs (Olney, Md./Good Counsel), No. 10 in the ESPNU 150, has a list of about seven or eight schools but has consistently mentioned the Bears on his short list.
• Running back KeiVarae Russell (Everett, Wash./Mariner) has visited Notre Dame and will also visit Washington and USC. Russell attended the Bears' junior day in the summer and Cal has a real solid shot right now.
