Eddie Vanderdoes continues to hear from numerous schools and one of the most aggressive is Cal as the Golden Bears' coaching staff keeps showing interest in the 2013 defensive end from Placer, Calif.
According to Vanderdoes, coaches from Cal, Oregon State and Washington stopped by his high school this week and he said all three have certain aspects about their programs that he likes. Cal is definitely up there on Vanderdoes' list.
"The Cal coach wants me down for an unofficial visit this off-season a few months down the road," Vanderdoes said.

"I've talked to the Cal defensive line coach a few times and he said that he really wants me to be a Bear and how fired up he is getting to know and recruit me. He said he's going to make it up here to visit me also. I'm definitely hoping for that offer though."
Vanderdoes, whose grandfather played football and basketball at Cal, said he would also like to visit Oregon State and Washington sometime soon.
So far, the 2013 prospect has picked up offers from Oregon State, UCLA and San Jose State. He said it's far too early to name a frontrunner.
"Oregon State and Washington, I really like the area up there especially Oregon State and their campus," said Vanderdoes, who's hearing from a variety of programs across the country.
"Oregon State's town is a lot like my hometown which I really like. I haven't seen Washington's campus really but I would love to visit it down the road."
Purdue is also starting to show interest in Vanderdoes, who finished with eight sacks and two forced fumbles in his junior season.
Next up for the 2013 defensive end is a trip to the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio. More offers could certainly arrive if Vanderdoes performs well during that all-star event.
