READ MORE QUICK HITS FROM JUNIOR DAY
Lavon Washington, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound wide receiver and safety out of Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds was offered yesterday by the Bears after attending the spring game, though he did not take part in the full Junior Day experience. Washington was offered as a safety.
Oakley (Calif.) Freedome running back Joe Mixon attended the game and said he spent time with just about each coach and "was treated like a king."
Mixon was excited to get to meet Jahvid Best and Marshawn Lynch, and sat near the former in the stands. He said he had good chats with coaches, but felt no pressure to commit.
Berkeley linebacker Michael Lazarus was only able to attend the spring game as he had an ACT class in the morning, but told our Greg Biggins that he loves it at Cal, is very comfortable and he and that his cousins -- Mixon, D.J Calhoun and Adarius Picket -- talk about playing together in college all the time, with Cal being the one school they all have in common.
Fresno (Calif.) Central defensive lineman Shariff Williams and defensive back Devon Brewer were at the spring game and while neither got an offer, both had a good conversation with the Cal coaches.
The Bears coaching staff told them they have them high on their board, but want them to come to the camp in early June, and a good performance there could earn an offer.
Four-star defensive lineman Tashon Smallwood also had a good time, and while he remains solid to USC, Barry Sacks was the first coach to offer him (at Nevada) and did again at Cal, and the two have a good relationship, so don't be surprised if Cal stays in the mix for him.
Five-star Michiah Quick was also on hand, and had a good time. While the Bears aren't in his early top five, they are in his top seven, and, sources say, he's got legitimate interest.
