BERKELEY -- After working one-on-one with California defensive backs coach Randy Stewart for much of the day on Sunday, the son and grandson of two former Major League Baseball players -- Quentin Tartabull -- got his first scholarship offer and committed to the Golden Bears.
"Right when I got there, the coaches, I could tell they were already excited to see me there, getting me up from Southern California, and then, I got into the camp, felt good, and afterwards, we took a beautiful tour of the whole campus," Tartabull said. "Everything just came together. It was amazing. At the very end, they threw the offer out there, and I committed right on the spot."
Tartabull – a safety out of Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany – plays linebacker during the high school season, but showed off incredibly fluid movement and quick hips during his workout with Stewart. He gets out of his breaks very quickly. Last season, Tartabull tallied 130 tackles, nine sacks and two picks. The most striking thing about the 2014 prospect today was that he worked out sans pads, and still, in one-on-one reps against receivers and tight ends with pads on, he was still easily able to tally three picks and a breakup.
At 6-foot, 200 pounds, Tartabull is the No. 37 safety in the nation, and is a three-star prospect.
Stay tuned for more from Tartabull as we go Beyond the Commitment.
