Cal Football: Bears Get 11th Commitment for 2020 -- Lineman Ender Aguilar
Cal received its 11th football commitment for the class of 2020 when Ender Aguilar, an offensive lineman from Anaheim, announced on Twitter on Thursday that he has verbally committed to Cal.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Aguilar attends Servite High School, and he picked Cal after also getting scholarship offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Kansas State, Oregon State, Utah State and Fresno State, among others, according to 247Sports.com.
The 247Sports.com website lists him as a defensive end, but he is likely to play offensive tackle or tight end at Cal.
The 247Sports.com website does not rank Aguilar among its top 1,000 recruits in the class of 2020, but ranks him 124th among prospects in California.
Rivals.com also lists Aguilar as a defensive end, and does not include him among its top 250 prospects in the nation for 2020.
Obviously Aguilar will need to gain weight to play offensive tackle in the Pac-12. His previous experience could also give him the flexibility to play on the defensive side if needed.
Aguilar explained his decision to Golden Bear Report:
"Coach Wilcox, his culture that he's bringing, and Steve Greatwood," Aguilar told that site regarding his reasons for choosing Cal. "(Greatwood) sends a lot guys to the NFL, Cal sends a lot guys to the NFL. They have a really good player base, and it's very unique in the Bay Area. And it's not far from home."
Aguilar worked with former 49ers player Jesse Sapolu in his transition to offensive line.
Cal’s recruiting class for 2020 is ranked 33rd in the nation by rivals.com while 247Sports.com had yet to include Aguilar’s commitment to its team rankings.
