The Bear Republic Podcast

We break down the past recruiting weekend, what the Bears need to do to finish off this class, and finally, break down this weekend's Cal hoops action.


We're back, folks, and with one week before signing day, we break down the California football team's latest recruiting weekend, who the Bears are still targeting to finish off the recruiting class and what the current bunch will bring to Berkeley once they arrive on campus.

The big news last week, of course, was the triple commitment of defensive linemen Ray Davison, Marcus Manley and Jacobi Hunter, coming off the Jan. 25 official visit weekend.
