Three-star DL commit Jaxson Moi announces he flipped to Stanfurd
Four decommits in just over a month.
What a turn of events.
California beat the downtrodden Colorado to win our first game over FBS opposition this year!
But just minutes before the final whistle, DL commit Jaxson Moi announced that he was decommitting from Cal, instead choosing the despicable Stanfurd Cardinal.
Moi—a three-star defensive lineman—first committed to Wilcox and staff in June, rejecting Stanfurd in the process. However, Stanfurd ultimately won.
Most concerning is the jarring number of decommits for the Bears in a short period of time. The decommit extravaganza started with four-star running back Jaydn Ott five weeks ago. It continued with four-star quarterback Justyn Martin and then three-star running back Kaleb Johnson ten days ago. Though Johnson is staying out of the conference and there is no recent prediction for Ott, the decommits are made worse by the fact half of these decommits are currently projected to be on the opposing sideline every year—Moi to Stanfurd and Martin to UCLA. Can we complete the misery and have a recruit decommit to choose USC in this cycle, too?
Luckily, the Bears still have a number of recruits on the defensive line for the class of 2022—three-star edge rushers Nunie Tuitele and Curlee Thomas IV, three-star defensive lineman Damonic Williams, and three-star defensive lineman Nathan Burrell (all rankings from 247 Sports).
