SAN FRANCISCO -- We have a loaded show for you this week as the California football team enters the first of two huge recruiting weekends, and the Golden Bears men's basketball team heads into a Saturday matinee showdown with rival Stanford at Maples Pavilion.

In our first segment, Scout.com and FOXSportsNEXT National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman joins us for over 30 minutes as we break down the state of Cal football recruiting. Which current commits have the best chance to see their rankings and star ratings improve? Which soft commits could wind up solidifying their commitment -- or not? Huffman answers your questions from twitter and more!

Didn't get your questions answered? Don't forget, we have an 11 AM subscriber-only recruiting chat with Huffman on Friday, Jan. 18, so be sure to sign up and stop on by!

In our second segment, we shift the focus to the hardwood, as Cal gets set to face the Cardinal in Palo Alto, Calif., at 1:30 PM on Saturday.

David Lombardi of TheBootleg.com -- our sister site in the Scout.com and FOXSportsNEXT network -- joins us to break down Stanford as the 10-6 Bears try for their third conference win against struggling Stanford (10-7, 1-3 in the Pac-12), which has lost three of the last four.
