Cal had already offered Isaiah Langley but he was on a camping trip with limited cell phone service so it was only days ago that the 2015 prospect learned about it.
Once the Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill wide receiver/cornerback heard the Golden Bears offered, he was thrilled and they definitely became one of his favorites early in his recruitment.
"I was at a camping trip on the border of Nevada so I was out of the loop for about four days," Langley said. "They offered (last) Thursday but I just got reception and my dad called me and told me about the Cal offer. I'm pretty excited.
"I visited the school. I sat in on a couple of wide receiver meetings with coach (Rob) Likens. I really like their staff and this has been going on since my sophomore year after football season."
The camp season has been especially important for Langley, who is also hearing from Oregon, Oklahoma, USC, UCLA, Boise State, Michigan, Georgia and others.
Some programs like the Pleasanton Foothill at receiver, some prefer him at corner and others want to bring him in and then figure out which positions fits best later on. One of the biggest draws about Langley is that he can play on offense or defense.
Cal is definitely one of the frontrunners but many other offers could be close especially after he performed well at Oregon's camp as well.
"My father and I had a meeting with coach (Randy) Stewart and the defensive coordinator, coach (Andy) Buh, and they broke down everything, what I need to do to play at Cal, they talked about grades," Langley said. "They offered me a month later and I was so excited."
