Will Craig, a 4-star offensive tackle from Granite Bay, California, committed to the California Golden Bears on Saturday.

The 6'5", 265-pound Craig is Scout.com's No. 26 offensive tackle in the class of 2018. Greg Biggins of Scout broke down Craig's game:

"Craig shows up well on film on both sides of the ball but we like his upside highest as an offensive tackle. He was the OL MVP at the Nike Opening Regional Camp in Oakland and shows the natural athleticism to be a dominant tackle in college. He moves well, has good lateral mobility, is equally strong as a run blocker or pass protector and is among the most talented line prospects out West."

That combination of skill, athleticism and upside makes Craig a very exciting prospect for Cal.

If he is able to add bulk and strength without sacrificing his mobility, he could be an absolute beast at the next level and earn a starting job sooner rather than later.

As far as the Golden Bears are concerned, Craig represents a major score for a 2018 recruiting class that currently ranks 72nd in the nation and eighth in the Pac-12 and will need to keep scoring big commitments moving forward in order to keep pace with the likes of Oregon, USC and UCLA.
