Mission Viejo (Calif.) offensive lineman Kevin Bemoll took an official visit to Oregon this past weekend and checking out Cal the previous week. According to Diablo coach Bob Johnson, Bemoll loved both visits and could decide in the next couple of days.
Bemoll, 6-5, 300 pounds was an early commitment to Ohio State but recently backed out saying he wanted to be closer to home and also added he was afraid of possible sanctions that could be coming down.
The talented lineman, a tackle in high school but likely a guard in college, told us a week ago that he loved his visit to Cal and said it would take a lot to beat the Bears. He was equally as wowed after his Oregon trip.
"He loved both visits about the same," Coach Johnson said. "It's going to be a very tough decision for him and he has a lot to think about. Both are great programs with very good coaching staffs and he felt very comfortable at each place. He's going to take the next couple of days to make his decision and should have an idea of what he's doing later this week. I can say he's down to those two schools and will not be taking any more trips. It will be Cal or Oregon, one or the other."
Bemoll had another strong season after earning Student Sports Junior All-American honors last season. He earned 1st team all-league, all-county and all-CIF honors for a Diablo squad that went 14-0 and finished the year ranked No. 2 in the country by Student Sports.
"Kevin had a great season, he's a great football player," Johnson added. "He's big and physical, works hard and is very tough. He's a dominating player and should be a very good college player as well."
