Cal football defensive backs coach Gerald Alexander has landed another 3-star recruit for his immensely talented secondary unit, welcoming Tyson McWilliams as the Bears’ 23rd commitment in the 2020 recruiting class.

A defensive back from St. Augustine High School in San Diego, McWilliams made his decision just days after making his official visit to UC Berkeley. He joins Trey Paster, Collin Gamble, Isaiah Young and Dejuan Butler as the fifth defensive back recruit to arrive in 2020.

According to the high school sports website MaxPreps, McWilliams is the 159th ranked defensive back in the country and the 21st ranked in the state of California. McWilliams has 21 tackles and 2 interceptions so far in his senior season at St. Augustine.

At 6’3” and 170 lbs, McWilliams’ lengthy frame will suit him nicely as he will join one of the most feared secondary units in the country at California Memorial Stadium.
