Cornerback Nygel Edmonds flips his commitment from Stanford to Cal

Cal is not shy about going after Stanford admits, and flips cornerback Nygel Edmonds from the Cardinal.

After committing to Stanford on April 4, 2015, and being admitted to Stanford just this December, three-star cornerback Nygel Edmonds out of Chattanooga (Tenn.) McCallie School has flipped his commitment to California Bears, making no announcement other than changing his twitter banner to a shot of California Memorial Stadium, and his twitter bio to read "Cal berkeley football commit."

Source have confirmed to BearTerritory that safeties coach Greg Burns has indeed flipped Edmonds, and this morning, head coach Sonny Dykes sent out his traditional #FightForCalifornia tweet.

http://www.scout.com/college/california/story/1631597-nate-herbig-talks-... It's the second time in the past month that Cal has gone after one of its rival's commits, the first being Nate Herbig, who de-committed from the Cardinal and will be visiting the Bears on the weekend of Jan. 22.

Edmonds attended the McCallie School after playing at Westminster in Atlanta the previous two seasons (where he was good friends with current Bears freshman Russell Ude, who also attended Westminster), and had scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Harvard, Louisville, Miami, Ohio State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

Edmonds becomes the 24th member of a class that's expected to finish out with 28 commits.

The 6-foot, 182-pound corner is ranked as the best corner in the state of Tennessee, the 19th cornerback in the South region and the No. 55 cornerback in the nation.
