It was always been an attractive option for players to head out west to play football. Sure, the west coast already has a nice crop of players to choose from as the San Diego and Southern Cal, but heading east and grabbing more than a handful of players from the Lone Star State has and always will be a great option for Pac-12 coaching staffs.
At California, the Bears coaching staff has done well in recent years in Texas and 2014 is starting off well now as the Greater Houston area has a couple players committed to Cal currently. Clearly these two guys are some of the top players in that both are part of the Preseason All-Greater Houston team and will be honored by the TD Club of Houston on Wednesday, August 14.
First in for the Bears was Spring (TX) Dekaney defensive end Isadore Outing (** DE), who pledged to Cal in late May, choosing over Colorado, Iowa State and North Texas.
In mid June, Sugar Land (TX) Austin running back Vic Enwere (*** RB) pledged to the Bear coaching staff over Michigan State, Colorado, Missouri and SMU. Enwere gives the Bears a larger back (6-1, 213) with versatility.
Outing and Enwere are the only two Houston area players honored who are committed to a west coast program.
