Cal football’s new defensive backs coach Marcel Yates has wasted no time since his introduction at Memorial Stadium. After securing cornerback Kaleb Higgins’ commitment earlier this month, Yates added to his secondary with 2021 commit safety Hunter Barth.

Barth is a three-star prospect out of Queen Creek, Arizona. At 6’2” and 200 lbs., Barth has prototypical height and size for a safety and will be a welcome addition on a Cal depth chart, which will likely lose last season’s starters, Jaylinn Hawkins and Ashtyn Davis, to the NFL this weekend.

The Arizona product was recruited by multiple Power Five teams, ultimately choosing Cal over the likes of Oklahoma State and Iowa State, as well as Pac-12 rivals like Oregon and Utah. Barth will join a position room headlined by Daniel Scott, Isaiah Humphries and Elijah Hicks.
