SF Chronicle: Cal Wraps up Recruiting

John Crumpacker
Less than a week before national football signing day on Feb. 2, Cal has apparently wrapped up its hunting and gathering of high school talent, with one junior college recruit for good measure. According to both and, Cal received an oral commitment on Thursday from elite cornerback Stefan McClure of Vista High School in San Diego County. Rivals rates the 5-10, 175-pound McClure as the 118th best player in the country at any position while Scout pegs the young man as the country's 4th-best cornerback.
Either way, it's a nice score for coach Jeff Tedford and especially his new secondary coach, Ashley Ambrose. According to, Ambrose made a big impression on McClure at the recent U.S. Army all-star game in San Antonio. Another factor in McClure orally committing to Berkeley was the prospect of playing in a renovated Memorial Stadium in 2012, when he'll be a sophomore.
