Golden West receiver Jordan Veasy commits to Cal

Cal gets its first commit of the official visit weekend, and third in the past two weeks, with JuCo receiver Jordan Veasy.

California has now struck in each of its first two big recruiting weekends of the winter, with Jordan Veasy out of Golden West College pulling the trigger on Sunday. Veasy, at 6-foot-3, 225, told BearTerritory that he will be playing outside receiver, and will have two years to play two.

Veasy was a full qualifier out of high school, but only played one varsity season -- his senior year -- and didn't get many looks, despite having grown six inches between his junior and senior years. He was, instead, busy playing baseball for the first three years of his high school career.

After graduating, the Alabama native chose to attend Itawamba Community College in Mississippi, and after one season, transferred to Golden West, where, this season, he hauled in 63 receptions for 1,036 yards and 11 touchdowns.

With 6-foot-3, 220-pound Darius Powe graduating this year, along with seniors Bryce TreggsTrevor DavisMaurice Harris and Stephen Anderson, spots will be plenty for incoming receivers, and the crop that arrived this fall. That was one of the big reasons that Veasy chose the Bears, he said, along with his relationships with Jacob Peeler and Sonny Dykes, who will be coaching Veasy with the outside receivers.

Veasy will enroll at Cal in January. We'll have more from Veasy soon. Top Stories
