Lineman back from Cal trip

Zach Okun is still in the early stages of his recruitment so even though a trip to Cal went really well the 2015 offensive guard is not contemplating a commitment.
The Newbury Park, Calif., standout said he spent a lot of time with the new coaching staff, which went well, toured the campus and definitely likes everything the Golden Bears have to offer.
"It went really well," Okun said. "I spent more than five hours with the coaches. I took a tour and it was really nice to finally get out there.
"I really liked all the coaches. I spent quite a bit of time with them. I spent most of the day with coach (Zach) Yenser and then I met coach (Sonny) Dykes toward the end.
"For the most part, I liked all the coaches quite a bit and it was cool to get up there and talk with all of them and really build a relationship with all of them."
Cal has already offered Okun, a 6-foot-3, 320-pound recruit who looked good this summer at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Chicago, so getting to campus was important. No decision is expected but the Golden Bears could have a little edge especially after his visit.
"I just wanted to get out there and a take a look," Okun said.
"I'm not really looking to commit any time soon. I just wanted to get out there and see what they're all about and see the school."
So far, Cal, Arizona, Kansas State, UCLA and Washington have offered Okun, who said he wants to take some more trips during his junior season. The Newbury Park recruit said Washington is a strong possibility for a trip and others could happen as well.
"I definitely want to get out to some more colleges and see what they have to offer," Okun said.
