Fletcher’s signing ends a whirlwind week for him with the Golden Bears. He first heard from Cal on Monday. The Bears offered him around 3 p.m. on Wednesday – National Signing Day.
Fletcher had two offers on National Signing Day — Northern Colorado and Southwest Oklahoma – but remained patient that a bigger school would offer. On Friday, his patience paid off big-time.
“I feel excited,” Fletcher said. “I had contact with (Cal) a couple days before Signing Day. (Coach Jeff Tedford) said they liked my film and that I was a good player and that I had a lot to offer the program. … I told him I wasn’t signing Signing Day because me and my dad (Willie) wanted to pursue bigger scholarships.
Fletcher said it wasn’t hard to be patient.
“Me and my dad had talked about it,” he said. “He just told me to be patient and my time will come, and it came. I knew my talents and capabilities and what (college) division I should be in.”
Fletcher had a combined three interceptions in two all-star games in January.
His signing gives the Lancers an county-leading 11 seniors headed toward the college football ranks. “Since I was a kid, Division 1 has been my dream,” Fletcher said.
