College Football Recruiting: Oregon 3* LB Patrick Hisatake announces commitment to California
Bears grab a future pass-rusher
Patrick Hisatake, a 6’5, 240 lb outside linebacker from Portland, Oregon, has committed to California. Hisatake plays at Westview High and chose the Bears over offers from UCLA, Arizona State, Utah, Colorado, Maryland, Kansas, Arizona, Washington State, and Michigan.
Hisatake posted an IG TV video on his Instagram account to highlight great Cal moments and his decisions for choosing the school; he later Tweeted to reinforce his commitment and to thank important figures in his life.
Hisatake is friends with current Bear Muelu Iosefa and current commit Fatuvalu Iosefa, stretching back to when Hisatake lived in Hawaii.
Hisatake is a consensus 3* recruit. He has been named a player in the 2021 Polynesian Bowl. Last year, he played at the small school of Clackamas High before transferring to Westview High for this upcoming year.
With Hisatake’s commitment, the Bears have picked up their 15th recruit of the class and their second linebacker (Moses Oladejo committed a few weeks ago). With his body type, though, look for Hisatake to end up playing on the edge.
Welcome to Berkeley, Patrick! GO BEARS!
