Cal Football: Bears Get Second Commitment for 2020 -- CB Isaiah Young

Cal head coach Justin Wilcox picks up a commitment from another talented defensive back. The Bears should have one of the nation's best secondaries in 2019.

Young, who attends Centennial High School, made his intentions known in a tweet

Cal received its second commitment for the class of 2020 as cornerback Isaiah Young from Centennial High School in Corona, Calif., provided a tweet that showed him committing to Cal at the end of the video.

California Golden Blogs and Cal Rivals also reported that Young has committed to Cal.

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Young visited the Cal campus on Junior Day in February, and Young told Bear Insider he enjoyed his stay.

“When I went up to Cal, I loved Berkeley and the area it’s in,” said Young, according to Bear Insider. “It’s a great place.”

Young also has offers from Arizona, Oregon, Washington State and UNLV, among others.

Young is not among the 300 junior recruits ranked by ESPN, nor is he among Rivals' top 100 prospects in the class of 2020. Rivals ranks him as the 50th-best prospect in the state of California. 247Sports does not have Young among its top 500 recruits for 2020, and ranks him as the 91st-best cornerback prospect in the nation and the 97th-best overall prospect in California.

Here is a highlight film of Young:

Trace Travers of Cal Rivals provides this description of Young:

"Young plays bigger than his listed height. He can come down on the perimeter, making tackles on bigger players. He's also about as technically proficient as you'll find at the defensive back position, as he turns his hips well, keeps his head up and reacts well. He takes good angles to the ball in pursuit, and has the reactivity to make plays, as he does on a pick six during the first play of his highlight film. He can play on the perimeter and in the nickel, with the agility to succeed inside."

Offensive tackle Everett Johnson was the first player from the class of 2020 to commit to Cal.
