While much of the news around California of late has been about the departure of two coaches to Washington, there is some good news: Two highly-regarded recruits have enrolled in school and began attending classes Tuesday on the first day of the spring semester.

From the press release:
QB Zach Kline (Danville, CA/San Ramon Valley HS) and OL Christian Okafor (Houston, TX/Westbury HS) graduated from their respective high schools in December and are slated to participate in the Golden Bears’ practices this spring.

Kline is rated the nation’s No. 3 quarterback by Rivals and was a high school All-American in 2011, participating in the Under Armour All-America Game and also being listed by SuperPrep as an All-American. In addition to his ranking by Rivals, Kline is listed among the nation’s top quarterbacks by Scout (No. 4), ESPN (No. 4) and MaxPreps (No. 6 pro style). He ranks as high as the No. 58 player overall nationally according to ESPN. Kline was named the Gatorade California Football Player of the Year and a first-team member of the San Francisco Chronicle’s All-Metro squad as a senior when he completed 230-of-341 passes for a school-record 67.4 completion percentage, a school-record-tying 36 touchdowns and 3,630 passing yards to rank fourth in the state of California and No. 18 nationally. He is a four-star recruit of ESPN, MaxPreps, Scout, Rivals and 247Sports.

Okafor is a four-star recruit according to ESPN and MaxPreps. ESPN ranks him No. 30 nationally among offensive tackles, while Scout has him at No. 34.
