WR Bryce Treggs commits to Cal
By Dave Hooker
BEAVERTON, Ore. - The friendship was that strong. So was the pull from Berkley.
Bryce Treggs gave his good buddy a future target at California when he committed to the Golden Bears during ESPNU's telecast of The Opening on Saturday evening.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder receiver from Bellflower (Calif.) Saint John Bosco High School is close friends with Cal quarterback commitment Zach Kline (Danville, Calif./San Ramone Valley)
"Really, really, really close," Kline said. "He's a good dude."
Said Treggs, "We're real good friends. We played in a seven-on-seven tournament together. He hit me up on Facebook. Ever since then, the chemistry's been there and we're really good friends. We always stay in touch."
The relationship has naturally translated to the field.
"Chemistry is always there," Treggs said. "In that tournament we played in, it felt like we had been playing together for years and we only practiced for a day."
That should transfer to college. However, Kline isn't done recruiting. He has his sights set on another receiver to go alongside Treggs.
"Getting him and [WR] Kenny Walker would be beautiful," Kline said.
Walker is still considering Cal, Washington, Washington State, Boise State and Colorado.
Kline and Treggs weren't teammates Saturday during the seven-on-seven passing camp at the Nike World Headquarters. Playing on opposite teams, Treggs admitted he gave a thorough scouting report of his good buddy.
"Make sure you stay deep because his arm has no limits," Treggs said. "He can sling it."
That scouting report resulted in two deep interceptions by Tregg's team, which won by two points.
"A lot," Kline said when asked how much the inside knowledge helped.
