The Cal Bears are on a roll hot on the heels of landing one of the top players in Nevada the Bears looked northward and received the pledge of the best prospects from the state of Washington.
The Bears landed four-star linebacker Anthony Felder (6-3, 225, 4.6) from Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea.
"My recruiting experience has been full of twist and turns," Felder said. "It feels good to finally put it behind me and I am looking forward to going to college and playing football at the University of California."
"Once I decided that I wanted to stay on the west coast it got a lot easier," Felder said. "The University of California was clearly the choice for me. The visit met all my expectations."
"I picked Cal because it felt right," Felder said. "I like Coach Tedford and his coaches."
The Bears get a player who earned Metro Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight year.
Felder was also named first-team all-metro linebacker and first-team all-metro fullback for the second season in the row.
Cal wins this recruiting battle over offers LSU, Arizona State, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Colorado State, Ohio State, Duke, and Miami.
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com O'Dea coach Monte Kohler had this to say about his talented linebacker.
"Anthony is big, strong and has a great nose for the football," Kohler said. "He's very physical and makes a ton of plays."
Cal lands one of the west coast's best football players and one of the nation's best linebacker prospects.
Outstanding get for the Bears.
