Wolger, Bock and Brigman Commit to Cal

The Cal baseball team continues its big summer, landing three commits on Friday, adding two to the 2016 class and striking with its first 2018 commit, who's got some very good baseball bloodlines.

While the California football team was busy snagging nine commitments in 19 days, the Cal baseball team was doing some work, as well, on the recruiting trail. Over the past five days, the Bears have snagged three commitments, starting with a July 5 pledge by 2016 left-handed pitcher Jack Wolger out of Carmichael (Calif.) Jesuit. The Bears also snagged commitments from 2018 shortstop Dawson Brigman out of San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian and 2016 first baseman Conner Bock out of Newport Beach (Calif.) Sage Hill on Friday.

Wolger checks in at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, and went 5-2 last season with a 1.81 ERA, and his uncle, first baseman Mike Wolger lettered in baseball at Cal in 1994 and 1995, hitting a program-record .432 in 1995.

Brigman, a 6-foot, 170-pound middle infielder, is the younger brother of the University of San Diego sophomore infielder Bryson Brigman, who is currently playing on the U.S. Collegiate National Team with Bears right-handed ace Daulton Jefferies this summer, and was drafted out of high school by the Oakland Athletics.

Conner Bock is a left-handed hitting slugger at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, who hit a combined .390 with nine home runs over his sophomore and junior seasons (.333 with 6 HRs and 34 RBIs this year, and .456 with 3 HRs and 6 2Bs as a sophomore).

Bock and Wolger join a 2016 class that includes outfielder/right-handed pitcher Max Flower, right-handed pitcher Jared Horn, left-handed pitcher Chris Murphy (who recently posted the top velocity among pitchers at the Southern California Area Code Games, at 90-93 with his fastball), right-handed pitcher Rogelio Reyes, shortstop Andrew Vaughn and shortstop Anthony Walters, who committed earlier this month.

Brigman is the Bears' first commit for the 2018 class.
