Oregon is on the verge of landing their best recruiting class in years, but Cal could close just as strong and the Bears are also on the verge of a monster recruiting class. Those two are battling for prospects and two players we had pegged as Duck leans now look like very strong leans to the Bears. Here's how crazy recruiting can be. Running back Brendon Bigelow (Fresno, Calif./Central), who says he's a soft commit to Washington but isn't expected to end up there, and Lakewood (Calif.) defensive tackle Todd Barr were both big leans to Cal all year long. They each then visited Oregon and were very close to announcing for the Ducks.
