Cal fills wide receiver void

Four-star pass-catcher Kenny Lawler (Upland, Calif.) chose California on Wednesday. Almost one year ago, he became Arizona State's first Class of 2012 pledge.

Lawler also had offers from Arizona, UCLA, San Diego State, Colorado, Indiana, Nebraska, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and SMU.

The Bears lost four-star wide receiver Jordan Payton (Westlake Village, Calif./Oaks Christian) just before signing day.
