It's no secret that Cal is one of the favorites for Bryce Treggs and the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco wide receiver visited Berkeley this past weekend for the Golden Bears' junior day.
Treggs, whose father Brian starred as a wide receiver at Cal, did not commit but he had a good time meeting with the coaching staff and hanging out with many other top prospects who made their way to campus.
"The trip was great," Treggs said. "I saw the new facilities and they were great. They'll be done by my freshman year so that's really exciting.

"I liked seeing all the top recruits there because if I go there we'd have a good chance of winning and we could put together a really good recruiting class. There were a lot of high-ranked players there so it made me feel more comfortable.
"I talked to basically all the coaches. We went over some plays and talked about how they'd use me if I went there. I talked to coach (Jeff) Tedford about the recruiting process and the benefits of going to Cal. I met with a lot of the coaches and we had good conversations."
None of those conversations were pushing Treggs to make a commitment. In fact, Treggs said Tedford told him to visit other campuses if he wanted to be sure he was making an informed decision.
The St. John Bosco standout who finished with 1,010 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in his junior season was happy he wasn't pressured to make a pledge.
"They weren't pushing me at all," Treggs said. "Coach Tedford even told me before you commit make sure you check out other places to make sure you're making the right decision."
Two trips are coming up for Treggs. He will visit Arizona State for its junior day on April 2 and then later that month will head to Notre Dame for its spring game. The Irish are a serious contender in his recruitment.
"I'm more excited for Notre Dame but both will be good trips," Treggs said. "I talk to Notre Dame pretty much every day. I talk to coach (Mike) Denbrock a lot and that relationship is really good."
