A pair of Pac-12 programs picked up recent commitments, including one player leaving one conference program for another. Maximo "Junior" Espitia (Salem, Ore./South Salem) committed to Oregon State back in August, but after picking up an offer from his dream school, the athlete decided to head to the Golden State. "I switched my commitment to Cal," Espitia said. "It was very hard to tell the Oregon State coaches and Coach [Mike] Riley because they're such great guys but I had to follow my heart. I've always liked Cal, it's a dream school for me and once they offered me, I knew I had a tough decision to make.
