Hughes still feels good about Cal

He was tired, limping and sore but Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive lineman Garrett Hughes was still all smiles following the Huskies dramatic CIF Open Division Championship over a very good Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne team Saturday night.

It was an incredibly physical game Saturday night, especially in the trenches, but Garrett Hughes said that's Huskies football.

"This is what we've been working for," Hughes said. "We've been working hard since the summer to get to this point and have an opportunity to play for a state title. Narbonne is a great team but we jumped on them early. They came back and took the lead but I had faith in our offense. I knew we would get down the field and score and that's what happened."

Hughes committed to California in mid-October and said he just spoke with new Bears coach Sonny Dykes a few days ago.

"He called me on Friday," Hughes said. "He said he just wanted to check in and see how I was doing. It was cool talking to him, he sounds like a great guy. He wished me luck in our game and my commitment to Cal is still very strong and I'm looking forward to visiting but I plan to take a few other official visits as well.

"I don't have any dates set yet but I'm talking with Boise State, Colorado State, Oregon State and Utah State. I for sure want to visit Oregon State and Colorado State and probably Utah State as well. I just want to check out all my options but like I said, I really like Cal a lot and I'm looking forward to seeing how the staff fills out."
