Capra Brothers Talk Cal Visit

Cal commit Johnny Capra and Cal offeree Jacob Capra talk about playing together at the next level, and which Bears brothers they've spoken with about that possibility.

Saturday wasn’t the first shootout that the Capra brothers – 2015 California commit Johnny Capra and 2016 offensive line offeree Jacob Capra -- were in this past week. The pair of Auburn (Calif.) Placer offensive linemen were on the losing end of a 62-51 affair against Folsom (Calif.) Vista Del Lago on Friday, before witnessing the Bears’ 59-56 win on Saturday over Colorado at Memorial Stadium.

“We got here and we had the meal, and it was really great,” said Johnny.

“We checked out the campus and talked with the coaches,” said Jacob.

Both brothers had attended the Sacramento State home opener for Cal, and joined a huge list of visitors.

After older brother Johnny committed to Cal back in June, the pressure has been on Jacob to join, but Johnny has made sure that his younger brother has a chance to blaze his own path.

That said, they have spoken with Jordan Rigsbee -- who played with his older brother Tyler – and both Cochran brothers -- Aaron Cochran and Matt Cochran -- who have played next to one another on the offensive line this season. “We’ve talked to them a good amount, and it would be a great opportunity,” Johnny said. “They’re definitely advocates for it, and I would love the experience, but Jake’s his own man, and he has a long time until he makes a decision.”

As for Jacob, there’s plenty for him to like about Cal.

“I absolutely love the location, how close it is to home, how academic it is – that’s a very big thing for me – and the weather is amazing here, the tradition, too,” said Jacob. “There are a lot of amazing things, here.”
