Goff happy with decision

Jared Goff committed to Cal in March and has not second-guessed his decision or even considered looking at other schools.
In some ways, it was an easy choice for the Kentfield (Calif.) Marin Catholic pro-style quarterback who recently looked good at the Oakland Elite 11, Oakland NIKE Camp and the Passing Down Best of the West 7on7 tournament.
"Everything seemed to be a perfect fit for me," Goff said. "Every time I went there it got better and better and still when I go there it's getting better so I knew it was the place for me.
"The fact that it's a 30-minute drive is definitely a plus. I love coach (Jeff) Tedford and coach (Marcus) Arroyo. They're great and the fact that they have 40-plus years of coaching the quarterback position helps, too."
Cal football is going through a facelift as well since its new facility is one of the most impressive in the country and the Golden Bears are renovating their stadium.
Those are two more pluses for Goff, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect who threw for 3,220 yards with 44 touchdowns and four interceptions in his junior season.
"To add onto that, the new facilities are great, the new stadium is going to be awesome and just everything about it," Goff said. "They've always been my favorite team so it's been perfect."
The next step for Goff is to recruit for Cal's recruiting class. While he doesn't want to get too personal, the Northern California standout does want to let players know that the Cal program could be a perfect fit for them as well.
"You don't want to get too intrusive but I'll let them know why I made my decision and why I think it's a good place," Goff said.
"I've been talking to Elijah (Qualls). I don't have Darrell Daniels' number but I saw him at NIKE Camp and I talked to him there. Guys like L.J. Moore and Hatari Byrd, we talked a little about Cal there. I didn't see Eddie Vanderdoes there. I've been talking to him a little bit on Facebook. Aaron Cochran is another guy I've talked to."
Fresno State offered after Goff committed to Cal but he said there's really no interest at other schools. Boise State and Washington State have offered, too, but Goff said he's happy with his choice.
"They still come by our school," Goff said. "We still have some good athletes they're looking at. I'll go down there in the morning probably two times per week and schools come by. That's the extent of it."
