Cal has had great success thus far with quarterback Aaron Rodgers who came out of Butte JC (Calif.) and could be dipping in to the JUCO ranks once more. San Francisco City JC (Calif.) signal caller Joseph Ayoob was recently offered by the Bears and a decision could be coming in the next few weeks.
Ayoob, 6-3, 200 pounds played in just five games last season but is on a tear on the recruiting front. He backed up starting quarterback Jason Swanson (Kansas signee) but became the starter late in the year when Swanson went down with a hyperextended elbow.
Ayoob stepped in and threw for 1,296 yards and 14 touchdowns including 304 yards and four scores in the state championship game as the Rams finished the year 12-0 and were National champions.
"Cal just offered a few days ago," Ayoob's mother said. "He hasn't made any decisions yet, he just wants to consider all his options right now. He has also been offered by Michigan State, Kentucky, Oregon State and LSU. I obviously think it would be great if he stayed close to home and played for Cal but it's his decision. He could be ready to decide in the next few weeks."
Ayoob, who played his high school ball at San Rafael (Calif.) Terra Nova, will play his sophomore year at CCSF and then transfer in time for Spring practice with three years to play two. The Bears still plan to take another high school quarterback in this year's class.
