Terrell Newby said he had an outstanding time at Cal's junior day and even though he hasn't been offered yet the West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade running back is staying positive and definitely likes the Golden Bears.
"It was great," Newby said.
"It was great to see the new facilities down there. We were one of the first people to see it and there are some great guys over there. I met with coach Ron Gould and he's a very good coach. I know he's coached some great Cal running backs and it was great to be up there.
"Any running back that comes through the program for them to succeed, if they're ready to succeed, then he knows how to coach them and they should be ready to play."
Oregon, Oregon State, Utah and Colorado have offered Newby, a 5-foot-10 prospect who rushed for 2,117 yards and 34 touchdowns in his junior season. Cal continues to show interest and Newby said he's considering a return trip this summer.
"They want to see me back at camp," Newby said. "We didn't discuss any offers. Their coaching staff did look at my highlights as a staff and said I'm pretty high on their watch list."
The Ducks remain the slight frontrunner for Newby, who's planning trips to UCLA, Oregon and Colorado, especially because of the way they can utilize him in the offense and he's been developing a strong relationship with running backs coach Gary Campbell.
Newby will be at UCLA's junior day this weekend.
"Oregon definitely does stand out," Newby said. "I want to take a visit to their junior day. I also got invited to UCLA so my top schools kind of change. Oregon definitely stands out as one of my top schools.
"I want to take a visit down there. I know they have a lot to offer especially because of the offense and how I'd be utilized. I know coach Gary Campbell is a great running backs coach too and I could learn a lot from him."
