Former Sooner Commit Talks Cal Offer
Last week, Wariboko was talking up the Bears in a big way as he started fall practice, after speaking with graduate assistant Jacob Peeler, and he did so again with BearTerritory following the offer.
“Right now, I don't know a lot about them, but I just know that they have really good academics, and they take care of their players really well,” Wariboko said. “I know they've got a new staff, too, and they had one of the best offenses in the nation last year, so I'm looking forward to finding out more about them, and I'm excited.”
Wariboko has been expecting the offer for quite some time, as the recruiting process has steadily moved in that direction.
“A few weeks ago, I was talking to one of their GA's, and then coach Yenser and coach Dykes, they asked for my transcript, and once we got through that process, they officially offered me, and I talked to coach Yenser and coach Peeler, too,” said Wariboko. “I like Yenser a lot. He's young, he loves his players, and he's a great coach, too.”
Cal is far from the first West Coast offer Wariboko has pulled down. Arizona State, Oregon, USC and UCLA have all offered, and he's come out to visit the two Los Angeles schools, already.
“I've already been to L.A. about three times this year, just visiting USC and UCLA, and I'm familiar with them, so I'm going to try and logistics and everything to try and get out there to the Bay Area to see Cal,” Wariboko said.
Wariboko said he has no preference whether to visit on an official or an unofficial visit.
“It'll be cool to come and see them play,” Wariboko said. “I just have to still talk to my family and work out the logistics.”
The Bears offense intrigues Wariboko, who runs a similar set down at the Casaday School in Oklahoma.
“We're in the spread, hurry-up, really up-tempo, high-speed,” said Wariboko, who would “definitely” feel “very comfortable” in the Bear Raid. The offense is also a bit of a draw for the 6-foot-3, 305-pounder.
“I'd say I pride myself on being versatile, and being in that offense, I'd know what to do and I can do it, but I also look forward to learning something new in any offense, even if it stays the same,” Wariboko said. “That's something I pride myself on.”
Wariboko has a 3.3 GPA and wants to major in business.
“I like their business school,” Wariboko said about Cal. “That's something that I want to go into.”
