  05/24/22 - Brayden RohmerJr/2024, California, 6-5, 285 (DS#999 OT) + More +

  After a promising initial playing stint in the covid-shortened 2020 season, redshirt soph right tackle Brayden Rohme suffered a debilitating injury in spring ball last season. Rohme made a fairly quick comeback and was able to play in nine games in the 2021 season, including starts against Arizona and Stanford. Though he wasn't back at 100% then, he's much closer now after wrapping up a healthy spring ball session last month. "It's been good," said Rohme. "The trainers really took care of me. I tore all the ligaments in my ankle last spring so it's nice to be out here finally. It's my first full spring I've been healthy so it's nice to be out here with the guys. I haven't had any problems with it after all the rehabbing with the trainers. I haven't had any pain with it all, so it's been awesome."

Players who tear ligaments often have to relearn techniques and get used to the physicality of the game and trust their bodies to stay healthy. "The first couple months after coming back, it's all about trust," said Rohme. "You're kinda scared about it coming back and a little stiff but now it almost feels better than my other ankle after all the work." Most spring or fall sessions see significant missed time for offensive line units because of injuries or just giving guys time off to stay healthy but this spring saw an unusally healthy unit, with only a few missed practices by redshirt frosh guard Bastian Swinney, who eventually returned the last week of practice. The ability to keep a unit together virtually the whole month allowed the line to build cohesiveness and gave the younger linemen like Swinney, redshirt soph guard Everett Johnson and Rhome the critical reps they needed to continue to develop and improve their games. - Bearinsider.com

  Background on Raiders undrafted rookie quarterback Chase Garbers from California: 6-2, 215 pounds; Garbers started 34 of the 36 games he appeared in at Cal, posting a 19-15 record as starting quarterback and finishing fourth among the school's all-time leaders in total offense (7,756 yards). That would be behind quarterback Jared Goff (12,086 yards), quarterback Troy Taylor (8,236) and quarterback Kyle Boller (7,811) - Raiders.com and Cal record book

  05/19/22 - Jeremiah HunterJr/2024, California, 6-2, 200 (DS#107 WR) + More +

  The cornerstone of the Bears youthful and talented receiving corps coming into the 2022 season, 6-2/200 redshirt soph receiver Jeremiah Hunter is the leading returning receiver this season. The former 4 star prep from Central High School in Fresno, strongly considered Oregon before choosing the Bears in the spring of his junior season. Hunter was injured in his 2020 frosh season and didn't play. He played in eight games in 2021, including one start and hauled in 21 receptions for 388 yards, averaging an impressive 18.5 yards per catch. All spring, Hunter looked like a new receiver, hauling in every ball thrown his way and playing with physicality off the line of scrimmage.

What's led to the stellar play and high level of excecution? "I just think it's my confidence," said Hunter. "I was hurt my freshman year, so I have been just taking all that in. Just reading the defenses with BT (Coach Burl Toler III). BT has been breaking down the defenses. "In high school, I knew how to release and all that came natural to me but reading defenses helps a lot and it can determine my route, so I feel like me being hurt allowed me to break everything down and learn the offense as well, too. I feel like over time my confidence is growing and I feel like you can see that now." - Bearinsider.com

  05/16/22 - Odua IsiborrSr/2023, California, 6-2, 265 (DS#999 DE) + More +

  After five years in the UCLA program, defensive lineman Odua Isibor decided to enter the transfer portal on April 21. Now, Isibor announced on his twitter account his transfer commitment to one of UCLA's Pac-12 rivals, as he is going to play out his sixth season of eligibility with the California Golden Bears. Isibor totaled 57 tackles with nine tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery in his five-year collegiate career so far. This past season, he had 14 tackles with 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, and one forced fumble. Last season, Cal had the fourth-best defense in the Pac-12 in terms of yards allowed per game (366.7). The Golden Bears also allowed 22.3 points per game (third-best in Pac-12), 137.2 rushing yards (fifth-best) and 229.5 passing yards (seventh-best). - Odua Isibor Twitter and other online sources

  05/14/22 - Spencer LovellrSr/2023, California, 6-6, 325 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  Former ASU 6-7/335 offensive guard Spencer Lovell officially visited Cal over the weekend, followed by a trip to the Palousse on an official visit to Washington State through Tuesday. After returning from Washington, the redshirt junior was ready to make his decision. "I just committed to Cal," said Lovell. "I think the combination of the culture, the offense, where Coach Musgrave really plays to the strength of his players, his and Coach Wilcox and the staff's high level of coaching experience -it all felt right. As a vet coming into their program, Coach Angus (McClure was really open to me to work with techniques I've been taught previously. He's not a cookie-cutter coach where everything has to be done the same way. Whatever is a strength in an individual player, he'll work with them."

After his visit, Lovell noted that the culture of the program, both with the staff and players made a big impression on him. Tonight, he reiterated that fit played a big role in his comfort level in committing to the program. "I really like the group of guys there, especially the O-line," said Lovell. "I met a good amount of them. "I get along great with Coach Angus and Mike (Saffell). I can really be myself around them and just be me. It was nice to have that. I thing the combination of Coach Angus and Mike works really well. Mike's played a lot and was an All-Conference center. He has recent playing experience and Angus has been around for forever so I think it's a good combo." - BearsInsider.com

  05/03/22 - Jack PlummerrSr/2023, California, 6-4, 215 (DS#32 QB) + More +

  One of three key transfer portal additions in the offseason, 6-5/215 redshirt junior quarterback Jack Plummer finds himself in a strong position in his battle to take over as starting QB for departed 4-year starter Chase Garbers at Cal. The fifth-year QB from Gilbert, Arizona earned honorable mention All-USA Arizona honors as a 2017 senior, completing 195-of-335 passes (58.2%) for 2861 yards and 35 touchdowns with seven interceptions, while also rushing for 404 yards and eight additional touchdowns. "Out of high school, my top two were Purdue and South Carolina," said Plummer. "The Purdue connection started from my defensive coordinator in high school who played at Louisville with the Brohm's (former Louisville and current head coach and OC Jeff and Brian Brohm). He slid them my film and they were recruiting me the hardest. I thought it was a good fit playing for a head coach and offensive coordinator who both played quarterback in the NFL." Plummer started 13 games in his time at Purdue, completing 319-of-492 passes (64.8%) for 3405 yards with 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for a 136.35 quarterback rating. - Bearinsider.com

  UCLA's defensive ranks were further thinned Wednesday when veteran defensive lineman Odua Isibor announced he was entering the transfer portal, becoming the second member of the team to depart since the start of spring practice. Linebacker Caleb Johnson made a similar move two weeks ago. One of the last remaining holdovers from the Jim Mora era, Isibor was a contender to start this season at defensive tackle after having become a regular member of the playing rotation over his final four seasons in the program. He was a part-time starter in 2021 and made 14 tackles, including 4½ for losses, to go with one forced fumble. - Los Angeles Times

  12/17/21 - Chase GarbersrSr/2022, California, 6-2, 215 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  The face of Cal football for the past four years is on the move. Redshirt senior quarterback Chase Garbers announced via Twitter on Dec. 14 that he is declaring for the 2022 NFL draft. While sporting a blue and gold uniform, Garbers has thrown for 6,580 total yards and boasts 1,174 total yards on the ground. During the fall 2021 season, the Newport Beach local surpassed former Cal quarterback Joe Kapp as the program's all-time lead rushing quarterback and ranked within the Pac-12's top three quarterbacks for total offense. Garbers' decision follows a series of announcements made by a number of graduating Bears, including Nikko Remigio, Trevon Clark and Christopher Brooks. Stretched thin of former starters, Cal will have to rely heavily upon younger faces to fill gaping voids next season. - Daily Californian

  On Dec. 9, former walk-on tight end turned scholarship starting tight end Jake Tonges entered the transfer portal, looking to find a new home away from Berkeley in 2022. Tonges totaled 47 receptions for 620 yards and four touchdowns at Cal over his career. Proclaimed as the "best tight end in the Pac-12" by fellow tight end Collin Moore, Tonges' seniority and presence in the locker room and on the field may be missed by Cal in the season to come. - Daily Californian

  On Wednesday night, two Bears who helped lead Cal football's offensive unit in the fall 2021 season announced their intention to leave. The first came from tight end Gavin Reinwald, who decided to enter the transfer portal as a graduate transfer. The second came from wide receiver Trevon Clark, who plans on declaring for the 2022 NFL draft. Clark was one of the star offensive weapons for Cal this season after leading the team with 658 receiving yards, four touchdown receptions and an average of 20.8 yards per catch that ranked first in the Pac-12. - Daily Californian

  12/05/21 - Trey PasterJr/2024, California, 6-1, 225 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  Trey Paster scored on a 55-yard fumble return in the second quarter, California's defense made a clutch stop near the goal line, and the Golden Bears held off Southern California 24-14 in the season finale for both teams. Christopher Brooks added a pair of short scoring runs on a day when Cal's offense struggled reaching the end zone to help the Golden Bears (5-7, 4-5 Pac-12) to their first home win against the Trojans since 2003. "It means a lot to end the season with a victory," said Cal quarterback Chase Garbers, who was 18 of 21 for 177 yards. "Just the way this whole season has gone and what our team has done, it shows how big of a family we are. Had some ups and downs but came out on top tonight. The defense played lights out." Jaxson Dart, making his third start for USC (4-8, 3-6) in place of injured quarterback Kedon Slovis, threw a 45-yard touchdown before being forced out with an injury in the third quarter. It was USC's final game before new coach Lincoln Riley takes over next season. The game - which came a day after the Pac-12 championship game - was originally scheduled for Nov. 13 but was postponed three weeks due to COVID concerns within the Bears program. - California/AP College Football

  11/21/21 - Chase GarbersrSr/2022, California, 6-2, 215 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  Chase Garbers returned from a bout with COVID-19 to throw the longest pass in Big Game history, leading California to a 41-11 victory over Stanford on Saturday. Garbers was one of more than 20 players from Cal (4-6, 3-4 Pac-12) to miss the game at Arizona two weeks ago following a positive test. The Golden Bears had more than 40 positive tests in all for the program, leading to last week's game against Southern California to be postponed. But nearly all of those players were back on Saturday for the Big Game and Cal delivered a thorough beating of Stanford (3-8, 2-7) with 636 yards of offense, including 352 on the ground. Garbers delivered the biggest play with an 84-yard TD pass to Trevon Young to open the scoring in the second quarter. That broke the record for longest pass in the series, eclipsing the 82-yarder Brian Johnson threw to Walter Batson for Stanford in 1987.

Garbers added a 1-yard TD pass to Christopher Brooks later in the half to deliver Cal just its second win in the past 11 Big Games. Garbers ran and threw for a score two years ago in a 24-20 win at Stanford Stadium that was the Bears' only other win in the past 11 games against Stanford (3-8, 2-7). The Cardinal have dropped six straight games overall for their longest skid since losing their first nine games in 2006 under coach Walt Harris. Even the return of Tanner McKee made little difference for Stanford. He missed the past two games when the Cardinal were outscored by 66 points in losses to Utah and Oregon State and struggled to get much going on offense. Stanford was gashed again by big plays, allowing a 75-yard run to Brooks and a 76-yard TD run to Marcel Dancy in the third quarter. The Cardinal have allowed five TDs from scrimmage of more than 50 yards in the past three games. - California/AP College Football

  10/31/21 - Chase GarbersrSr/2022, California, 6-2, 215 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  After three straight Pac-12 losses to open the season, California is starting to find its stride. Chase Garbers threw one of his three TD passes one play after a partially blocked punt and the Golden Bears beat Oregon State 39-25 Saturday. "We're certainly improving," Cal coach Justin Wilcox said. "There are guys who are developing and making some big plays in the game who are coming into their own a little bit. We are improving but the margins are so thin at this level of football and in our conference that there are going to be a handful of critical plays in the game that you have to find a way to make and I thought there were some big ones today." The biggest plays came in the closing seconds of the third quarter with Cal (3-5, 2-3 Pac-12) leading by seven points.

Chance Nolan couldn't connect with Trevon Bradford on a third-down pass and sent out Luke Loecher to punt. Nick Alftin got a piece of the kick and it went out of bounds 1 yard past the line of scrimmage. Garbers then went deep and connected on a 38-yard TD pass to Trevon Clark to make it 31-17 on the final play of the third quarter. The Beavers (5-3, 3-2) lost for the second time in three games and fell a game behind rival Oregon in the Pac-12 North. "There's nobody feeling sorry for themselves, because we put ourselves in this position," defensive back Jaydon Grant said. "We're the ones who came out and didn't execute. We're the ones who came out and got out-physicaled from top to bottom. We're the ones who are accountable for losing this game - not the coaches, not the game plan. It's us. It's not being able to execute for four quarters throughout the duration of the game. It's don't feel sorry for yourself and back to work tomorrow." Oregon State tried to mount a comeback, cutting it to 31-25 on a 46-yard TD pass from Chance Nolan to Trevon Bradford followed by a 2-point conversion. - California/AP College Football

  10/24/21 - Chase GarbersrSr/2022, California, 6-2, 215 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  Chase Garbers passed for two touchdowns and broke the school record for career rushing yards by a quarterback, leading California past Colorado, 26-3, on Saturday. The Golden Bears (2-5, 1-3 Pac-12) made several big plays offensively to go with a solid afternoon from their defense and special teams while snapping a three-game losing streak. Garbers completed 22 of 29 passes for 225 yards but did his most damage on the ground, rushing for 96 yards on 10 carries. That also moved Garbers past Joe Kapp as Cal's all-time leader for quarterbacks with 1,025 yards. Kapp ran for 931 from 1956-58. Dario Longhetto made a career-best four field goals, including a 50-yarder as time expired in the first half. The Bears defense added six sacks and held the Buffaloes to 104 yards of offense.

Colorado (2-5, 1-3) failed to get into the end zone and was limited to a 33-yard field goal by Cole Becker. The Bears, off to their worst start since coach Justin Wilcox took over in 2017, scored on their first five possessions and led 23-3 at halftime. Garbers had a pair of touchdown throws in the first half, including a perfectly thrown 24-yard lob to freshman tight end Keleki Latu over tight coverage by Colorado linebacker Quinn Perry. Cal pushed its lead to 17 when Garbers ran a play-fake and connected with wide open Gavin Reinwald for a 31-yard score. Colorado never got anything going. Buffaloes quarterback Brendon Lewis was held to 69 yards passing while the running game managed only 35 yards. - California/AP College Football
