Four-star El Cerrito (Calif.) offensive tackle Aaron Banks talks about his summer plans and the Cal coaching staff

SAN PABLO, Calif. -- Aaron Banks discusses his summer plans, and his day out at Contra Costa College at the Golden Gate Showcase.

SAN PABLO, Calif. -- El Cerrito (Calif.) offensive tackle Aaron Banks has dropped nearly 20 pounds over the spring and summer, and he showed off that new, svelte look at the Golden Gate Showcase on Sunday at Contra Costa College. He wasn't there to participate in the Golden Gate Showcase, though; he was there to support his younger brother Frank Banks, an up-and-coming defensive tackle.

While there, the older Banks got to chat with several coaches, including UCLA's Angus McClure, as well as California offensive coordinator Jake Spavital and offensive line coach Brandon Jones.

"They're the local team, so I've been up there a couple times, and it's a pretty good relationship," Banks said of the Bears. 

Jones has already coached Banks -- a year ago, at Cal's full-contact camp -- and brings a "down-to-earth" approach, said Banks.

"He's just a regular guy, and he knows what he's talking about," Banks said.

This summer, Banks is going to try to hit as many schools as he can for visits, like NebraskaWisconsinMichigan and Notre Dame. He'll also head down south to see FloridaArkansas, and LSU, before swinging back to see ArizonaArizona State and Washington.

He wants to come out with a top 15 in the next three weeks.
