Ashton “Champ” Sanders, a defensive tackle from Cathedral High School in Los Angeles, became the fourth player to commit to Cal in the class of 2023 when he made his announcement on social media on Friday night.

And based on his twitter messages and videos he should be fun to have around.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound Sanders, who lives in Pasadena, chose Cal over his other finalist, Wisconsin, and he also had offers from Notre Dame, Utah, Washington, Arizona State and Washington State, among others.

Sanders is ranked as the nation’s 59th-best defensive line prospect in the class by 247 Sports, while the 247 Sports Composite rankings (which take an average of all major recruiting sites) place him 72nd among defensive linemen and 613th among all prospects in the class of 2023. Both 247 Sports and Rivals rank Sanders as a three-star recruit, and Rivals ranks him as the 54th-best prospect in the state of California.
