Three-star safety Zach Hoffpauir (Peoria, Ariz./Centennial) chose California and will play football and baseball in college.

After narrowing his choices to also include Stanford and Arizona, the talented safety decided Cal was the best fit for him.

"I visited Cal in the summer and really liked it there," Hoffpauir said. "The new facilities they're building are going to be incredible and I really like the coaching staff a lot. They offered me back in June and Clancy Pendergast, the defensive coordinator there, has been recruiting me really hard since the summer.
