SF Chronicle: Cal Nabs Top 15 Recruiting Class

John Crumpacker

Over a span of 5 hours, 38 minutes on Wednesday morning, a total of 22 faxed national letters-of-intent arrived in Cal's football office, giving the Golden Bears a recruiting class expected to be ranked in the top 15 in the country.  There was one new name on the list, that of defensive back Kameron Jackson from Long Beach Poly High School, alma mater of former Cal great DeSean Jackson, no relation.
At 4:12 a.m., the first letter-of-intent to arrive was from wide receiver Maurice Harris of North Carolina, 12 minutes after the official start time of 7 a.m. Eastern standard. The last to come in was at 9:50 a.m. from defensive back Jordan Morgan of Lakeside, Ariz.
Three signees are already in school as of the spring semester in defensive back Avery Walls of McDonough, Ga., running back Darren Ervin of Houston and offensive lineman Matt Williams of North Dakota.  The big catch for coach Jeff Tedford was defensive tackle Viliami Moala of Grant High School in Sacramento, the only five-star recruit on Cal's list of 22. Moala and high school teammate Puka Lopa, a defensive end, wanted all along to play for the same college and now they will.
