BEAVERTON, Ore. -- There wasn't much drama associated with Bellflower (Calif.) wide receiver Bryce Treggs' recruitment. It was really a matter of when, not if, he would commit to California. One of the top players at The Opening on the Nike campus, the silky smooth athlete decided the event full of 150 of the top players in the country was just the right time for him to make public where he would be heading to school, announcing his choice Saturday afternoon on national television.

"I'm going to commit to Cal," Treggs told "Just my relationship with coach (Ron) Gould -- he's a great guy, and I can see myself being around them for four years.

"The Cal area, I can see myself living there for four years not only to just play football. The education was a big factor. It's the number one public school in the nation. It just felt like the right place, so I figured I might as well commit."

No one could be happier to hear the news that Treggs finally committed than fellow Bears verbal commit Zach Kline, who quarterbacked a 7-on-7 team at The Opening that took a loss at the hands of the speedy wide receiver.

"He tore our defense up," Kline said. "He's definitely their biggest guy offensively. Our defense was locked down, and somehow he found a way to catch the ball. He's just a great player."

"This is fun, we're having a little competition," Treggs said. "I was talking trash the whole game."

Many observers had penciled in Treggs as a Cal lean ever since he picked up an offer from Jeff Tedford because Treggs' father, Brian, was a former Cal receiver who also played in the NFL. Despite considering Arizona State, Stanford, Notre Dame and UCLA among others, the chance to follow in his father's footsteps was just too much to pass up.

"It's a big factor," the younger Treggs said. "Every time I go up there, everybody always calls me Little Treggs and stuff. I'm well known around the Cal area."

With Kline and Treggs officially headed to the same school next year, the two have already turned their sights on adding more pieces to the Golden Bears' recruiting class.

"Christo Kourtzidis, he's a good dude," Kline said. "I'm still trying to get Taylor McNamara, Kenny Walker -- he's a stud. Those guys and Cedric Dozier, that will be an unstoppable team. I'm really excited  about this recruiting class. Should be one of the best in the nation for sure."

Despite being a commit to the school for only a few hours, Treggs had no problem joining his future quarterback in spreading the word about what is going on in Berkeley.

"I'm trying to get Shaq Thompson and some of the other DBs I see out here," Treggs said. "I'm still doing a little scouting."

The 6-foot, 170-pound receiver is the third commitment for Cal's class of 2012. Treggs finished his junior year with 56 catches for 1,010 yards and 12 touchdowns.
