Cal Gets 14th Commitment for 2021 -- DE Myles Williams
Defensive end Myles Williams of Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, Calif., committed to Cal on Friday, according to multiple reports and Williams' Twitter account.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Williams, who also plays defensive tackle, chose Cal over offers from Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado, Washington State and Boston College, among others.
Williams is the 14th player in the class of 2021 to commit to Cal.
A three-star recruit, Williams is rated the 1,110th-best prospect overall in the class of 2021 by 247Sports Composite and the 63rd-best weakside defensive end prospect.

Williams played his junior season at Calabasas High Shool before transferring to Bishop Alemany in January. He was a teammate of incoming Cal freshman quarterback Jaden Casey.
“I’ve always followed the Golden Bears but I’ve recently been able to watch some game film with coaches," Williams told Bear Insider, "and in the next fews days, I plan to take a trip up to the Bay Area for an unofficial visit so we’re looking forward to that.”
As a junior Williams had 60 tackles, 16 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, 30 quarterback hits and 22 quarterback hurries.
Defensive line coach Andrew Browning was the primary recruiter for Williams.
Williams' high school coach is Casey Clausen, a former quarterback at Tennesee.
