Thompson Reopens Recruitment

That's why they call them non-binding. Five-star athlete Shaquille Thompson verbally committed to Cal last Saturday during junior day. However, he decided decommit and reopen his recruitment on Friday…

Shaquille Thompson gave California its signature recruit 11 months before national signing day after he made his verbal pledge last weekend. But it looks like the Golden Bear coaches will have to do it all over again if they want sign the five-star prospect next February.

"His avenues are still open," his mother, Patty, said via text message. "You will know his choice at the [All-American] bowl."

Thompson is open to all coaches until he makes his final decision, says his mother. The running back/safety remains very high on Cal. But he will likely take official visits in the fall before deciding.
