"I just committed to Cal," McTyer said Thursday night. "I sat down with my family and we talked about everything. I've been thinking a lot about this and I just felt like Cal is where I wanted to be and it's the best overall place for me.
"Cal has everything I wanted in a school. It's close to home but still far enough away to feel like I'm leaving home. I like the football program and the coaches and Cal is a great academic school as well. I just can't wait to be part of the Bear family."
McTyer camped with Cal in the summer and also took an unofficial visit. The visit this past weekend was his third this year.
"I'm very comfortable at Cal," McTyer said. "I really like the school a lot. The coaches are recruiting me as an athlete and haven't specified if I'll be at corner or receiver. I can play on either side of the ball and I'll do whatever it takes to help the team win."
