One fact that I don't think is ever mentioned regarding recruits, but is important, is the level of competition each recruit played against in high school. Most states have "levels" or "divisions" or other terms to place each high school or conference within their state. Cal obviously would like every recruit who has done well to have played at the #1 ranked high school in the state or country, like Mater Dei in Orange County, or closely ranked St. John Bosco from the same area. The conference they play in is ranked #1 in California and probably in the nation. Players who have played for them should obviously be rated as playing against the toughest competition.
Texas is probably the most famous state to do that and seem to have several divisions within their state. Cal has recruited a few running backs from Texas but I think it was mentioned that one or two of them were from lower division levels within that state. Don't recall if they made our squad and/or how often they played. But the level of the division a player played in is one factor, among many others, to see how good they might be at the college level. But others may disagree.
