Take a bow Jeff Tedford, and whoever your recruiting co-ordinator is....
The Cal Golden Bears have just received their third commitment this week from an ESPN150 defensive player; Avery Walls joins Todd Barr and Jason Gibson in what has to be one of Cal's best recruiting scalps in a long time.
Michigan was the leader back in September, but since then it all went downhill. The shocking defensive performance and the lack of certainty was more than enough to turn him away from Michigan. The December announcement was a good indicator that it wasn't going to be UM. Personally I thought he would choose the Ducks, I'm not really sure where Cal even came from?
It always sucks to lose a player who at one point during the summer was actually recruiting for you...but still, we must look forward. Wayne Lyons is the most important recruit left on the board now in my opinion, as Michigan badly needs to take a good safety. He, like all UM's targets now, will announce after the RR decision is made.
