Four-star running back Marshwan Lynch (5-11, 195, 4.4) from Oakland (Calif.) Tech has had a very busy week so far. He and his cousin four-star cornerback deluxe Virdell Larkins (5-10, 195, 4.4) have hosted Cal and Oregon this week, in addition to getting ready to face Oakland (Calif.) Skyline for the Oakland city championship this Friday night.
Cal had the first in-house visit as defensive coordinator Bob Gregory and running backs coach Ron Gould talked about the benefits of being a Cal Bear.
Cal head coach Jeff Tedford will be coming in-house next week after Larkins takes his official visit to Cal this weekend December 5th.
The Oregon Ducks sent in their heavy hitters as head coach Mike Bellotti and defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti were in the house Tuesday.
Lynch has had an awesome season thus far rushing for 1,600 yards and 23 touchdowns.
When asked if it was down to Oregon and Cal Lynch was adamant that all the schools that were recruiting him were still in the hunt for his services.
That is good news for the schools that are recruiting him because the smart money is the lucky school that signs one of the cousins will sign both.
The other schools that are still in the running are ASU, Oregon State and UCLA.
Lynch and Larkins were scheduled to visit UCLA in November but the visit was canceled. So far it hasn’t been rescheduled.
Concord (Calif.) De La Salle standout athlete Jackie Bates (5-10, 180, 4.4) is very good friends with both Larkins and Lynch. When Bates committed the Ducks on Monday Night, one of his first calls was to Larkins and Lynch.
Could Bates be the Trump Card and help the Ducks land the talented duo?
Only time will tell.
