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