Like fellow Cal commit Traveon Beck, Daniel Juarez is a USA TODAY All-State selection. Beck called Juarez the funniest recruit in this class, and he proved that out while on the Bear Republic Podcast with us before his official visit.
Cal's newest signee -- with his National Letter of Intent coming in at 8:59 a.m., PST -- continues the Corona (Calif.) Centennial pipeline to Berkeley, a pipeline that includes fellow 2016 commit Camryn Bynum, running back Tre Watson and receiver Greyson Bankhead.
At 6-foot-6, 305 pounds, Juarez is a massive tackle who plays with a pronounced mean streak. As expected from a lineman out of Centennial, he's been very well coached, and shows advanced technique, and he's as good a pass blocker as he is a run blocker. He projects as a tackle, but he's nimble enough -- and strong enough, with good enough pad level -- to play on the interior, but that's not where I think he ends up.
Juarez is mobile, plays well in space, and keeps getting bigger and stronger. He's grown an inch and a half in the last year, and put on about 15 pounds of muscle.
