Report: Cal picks up D-line recruit

Four-star defensive end Gabe KingInsider will pick California on Wednesday, according to a report from the Contra-Costa Times.

That's a blow to Oregon because King transferred from North Carolina to South Eugene (Ore.) High School this past season.

The Ducks also are apparently out of the running for ESPNU 150 end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, who attends Portland's David Douglas High School.

It's not often the state or Oregon produces two elite defensive linemen, and the position was a need-area for the Ducks in recruiting.

Meanwhile, California's class may move up from its No. 22 national ranking. King is the third ESPNU 150 defender to commit to the Bears, joining end Chris Martin and outside linebacker Cecil Whiteside.
