California locks in official visit from 2023 quarterback target
Perhaps the quarterback of the 2023 class will be on campus soon for coach Justin Wilcox and the Cal Golden Bears.
Luke Duncan, a 3-star from Miramonte (Calif.), announced that he’ll be headed to Berkeley for an official from June 23-26. The 2023 class for Cal sits at just two known commitments at this point, but the Golden Bears are gearing up for a big recruiting weekend the last weekend of June.

The fast-rising NorCal prospect has seen his recruitment pick up a bit of late, but Cal has been on him from the beginning.
After an unofficial visit in March, he left with his first scholarship offer. Offers from San Diego State, San Jose State, and UNLV have come since. Duncan recently told 247Sports’ Greg Biggins that UCLA, Washington State, and Oregon State are also showing interest. He’s scheduled to take an official to visit the Beavers this upcoming weekend.
The 6-foot-5 Duncan is a pro-style quarterback prospect. Though he doesn’t have a star rating in the industry-generated 247 Composite, the 247Sports team has him tabbed as a 3-star and the 25th-ranked quarterback in his class.
Biggins wrote this on his game after watching him throw at the Elite 11 camp in Las Vegas:
“Duncan has been one of the standouts on the 7v7 circuit this off-season and there’s a lot to like there. The theme for Duncan is consistency. He had some great throws where you saw the natural arm talent and he looks like one of the top pocket passers the region. We want to see him continue to improve mobility and his ability to make throws outside the pocket but there’s some definite upside with him for sure.”
