Darius Powe pulls the trigger early

It didn’t take Cal long to get things rolling on its monster recruiting weekend. Wideout Darius Powe of Lakewood, Calif., confirmed via text this weekend that he’s a Bear.

Powe, one of the top receivers in the region and an Under Armour All-American, tripped to Oregon State and was also looking hard at UCLA and Utah. The Beavers appeared to be in a good spot, and Cal didn’t get heavily involved with the receiver until an in-home visit just two weeks ago.

“I’m a Bear, it’s true,” Powe said via text. “I just like it here, and I’m blessed by the opportunity to play for a school like Cal.”

We’ll have more on Powe’s decision following the weekend, but nice early momentum for the Bears in what promises to be a huge couple of days for the program.
