Cal Football: Hayward 2021 4* DE/LB Kaleb Elarms-Orr announces commitment to Bears

Local talent, NFL upside

When his mother was a masters student at California, an infant Kaleb Elarms-Orr would come along with her to class. Now, the 4* defensive end/linebacker, who plays for local school Moreau Catholic in Hayward, is coming home. Elarms-Orr is the Bears’ 19th commit of the 2021 class.

Elarms-Orr stands at 6-3 and weighs 222 pounds. He currently plays both outside and inside linebacker and has the traits to play our new STAR position. He can also line up with his hands on the ground.

Elarms-Orr held offers from the Naval Academy, Arizona, Colorado, Washington State, and Boise State, among others.

Although Elarms-Orr’s 247Sports Composite rating ranks him as a high 3*, 247Sports’ analysts list him as a 4* and rank him the 17th best player in California. National recruiting editor Brandon Huffman projects Elarms-Orr as a multi-year starter and a 4th-7th round NFL Draft pick.

You can view his latest highlight reel on Hudl.
