California's tumultuous recruiting season continues to be just that, with good news and bad news arriving the day before national signing day.

The Bears lost receiver Jordan Payton (Westlake Village, Calif./Oaks Christian) to Washington -- the school which lured Cal's former ace recruiter Tosh Lupoi -- but salvaged the day a few hours later by getting a re-commitment from athlete Cedric Dozier.

Payton, also a one-time USC commit, admitted that Lupoi as well as Eric Kiesau -- who also left Cal for Washington -- played a major role in his flip to the Huskies.

"I was very close with Tosh Lupoi and Eric Kiesau at Cal," Payton told ESPN.com's Greg Biggins "When they left for Washington, I decided to take a look there. I really wasn't looking at Washington before, but I took a visit and was blown away."
