Several years since their Top 25 prominence, the California Golden Bears look to swing back into things this season on the tail of a few talented players breaking out.
The Bears have sent a multitude of players to the NFL in the last decade, and in 2012 several current players will show why they're the next crop of stars.
Coach Jeff Tedford has made sure of it.
Cal hasn't won a bowl since 2008, but Tedford has since worked relentlessly to restock the Bears' roster. His recruiting classes have appeared on ESPN's Top 25 rankings each of the past three years.
The studs from those classes are coming into their own. These are the five guys with the biggest potential to make it onto the national scene with stellar performances.
