  06/05/21 - Ryan GloverrSr/2022, California, 6-1, 210 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  The Bears picked up some experience in the QB room with the grad transfer of former Penn and Western Carolina QB Ryan Glover on Friday. Glover was was on campus Thursday to get a thorough tour of everything and also had a chance to visit his grandma and other family members in the evening. "Everything was super nice," said Glover. "Obviously it's a step up from what I'm used to with Cal being a Power-5 school. Everything seemed very new and organized and I liked how they had all the football facilities in one place." Already holding a degree from Penn, the chance to add a certificate in Business Administration and Management from Cal, as well as play a season under the tutelage of longtime former NFL offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave was too hard for Glover to pass up. "Coach Musgrave has been recruiting me the most over everybody," said Glover. "I'd say he's a very smart, intellectual guy. He has experience with his playing and coaching in the NFL. Just having that type of guy on the staff and being able to be coached by someone like that will take my game to the next level, which is one of the reasons I chose Cal." - Bear Insider

  04/15/21 - Brett JohnsonJr/2023, California, 6-4, 290 (DS#999 DT) + More +

  Brett Johnson, who started all four games on the defensive line for Cal in 2020, was ruled out for next season by head coach Justin Wilcox on Wednesday. Johnson underwent a successful surgery to repair a broken hip suffered in an automobile accident this spring. "The most important thing right now is that he focus on his overall health and well-being," Wilcox said. Since arriving at Cal as a true freshman in 2019, Johnson has racked up 46 tackles and three sacks over 13 starts. Last season, Johnson embraced his role as a veteran presence on the defensive line and enjoyed arguably his best year at the collegiate level, tying for third place on the team in total tackles. Against Stanford in the 2020 Big Game, the junior recorded a career-high 10 tackles. Johnson is expected to make a full recovery for the 2022 season and will retain three years of collegiate eligibility from 2022 onward. - Daily Californian

  03/23/21 - Jeremiah HunterSo/2024, California, 6-2, 185 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Earlier this spring, head coach Justin Wilcox declared that the team's "whole mission in life" was to improve as a staff and as a team. It appears that Wilcox and his players have followed that mission closely. "We're better than we were yesterday. I don't think there's any doubt in our minds," Wilcox said. For a team that finished a lackluster 1-3 last season, being better than yesterday is a great place to start. Adding fresh talent and developing older talent should only further boost the Bears' chances. "It's more competitive in each individual position group than it's been since I've been here, which is a great thing," Wilcox said. "There are some newer, younger guys who are really pushing the other guys at those positions."

One of those younger guys will presumably be rising sophomore wide receiver Jeremiah Hunter, who has been receiving plenty of buzz this spring. Standing at 6'2" and measuring in at 190 lbs., Hunter did not see the field time last year due to injuries, but he ran with the first-team group Saturday. Cal's first-team offense had limited time to operate, as the staff sought to get more live reps for those lower on the depth chart. But in that limited time, Hunter snagged a nice catch along the sideline on a well-run comeback route and nearly moved the chains. - Daily Californian

  03/04/21 - Jaden CaseySo/2024, California, 6-1, 185 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  On March 2, freshman quarterback Jaden Casey announced that he will be transferring away from Cal via his Twitter. Casey was a highly touted high school recruit in the 2020 cycle, garnering three-star ratings and offers from schools such as Alabama and Fresno State among others, the latter of which he ultimately decommitted from in favor of signing with the Bears. This leaves the Cal QB room a little less crowded, but still stout, with returning starter Chase Garbers along with Robby Rowell, Spencer Brasch and Zach Johnson still in the mix. - Daily Californian

  02/03/21 - Michael SaffellrSr/2022, California, 6-2, 290 (DS#25 C) + More +

  Cal senior center Michael Saffell was named the 2020 Pac-12 Football Scholar Athlete of the Year the conference announced Tuesday. The award, which is presented in each of the 24 sports sponsored by the Pac-12, was established to honor collegiate student-athletes that are standouts both academically and in their respective sports disciplines. Saffell becomes the fourth Cal player to win the award since its inception in 2007 and the second in the last four seasons following placekicker Matt Anderson in 2017. Cal's other winners were Alex Mack (2008) and Mike Mohamed (2010). Saffell earned his bachelor's degree from the Cal's Haas School of Business in three-and-a-half years in December of 2020 and had a 3.62 undergraduate grade point average. He was accepted into the university's Master of Information and Data Science program, which he began in January of 2021. - Bear Insider

  Inside linebacker Kuony Deng, safety Elijah Hicks, outside linebacker Cameron Goode and cornerback Josh Drayden will all stay in the blue and gold. The group accounted for 92 tackles and directly contributed to four of Cal's five turnovers in 2020. Their announcement came with a claim: They have yet to finish their business. This sentiment is likely shared by running back Marcel Dancy and center Michael Saffell, two key seniors for the Cal offense who will also return in 2021. - Daily Californian

  Cal's 2021 roster continues to grow as the Bears added Raymond Woodie III, a former four-star recruit, through the transfer portal. Woodie III, who has played safety at Florida State for the past two seasons, received an offer from Cal in 2017 and was reportedly recruited heavily by the Bears. The Florida local eventually elected to attend Florida State, where his father, Raymond Woodie, coached the inside linebacker unit. Woodie has since left the Seminoles for an assistant position with Florida Atlantic University. The blue and gold's newest defensive back played with the Seminoles for two seasons and made 14 appearances, including six as a true freshman. In that time, Woodie III had 34 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a pass defended and a fumble recovery. - Daily Californian

  01/06/21 - Zeandae JohnsonrSr/2021, California, 6-3, 270 (DS#41 DE) + More +

  It turns out that a seventh year in college is not the charm - at least not for defensive lineman Zeandae Johnson. Johnson, despite having eligibility for a mind-boggling seventh year with the Bears, will forego that opportunity in favor of the 2021 NFL draft after doing plenty in Berkeley. The redshirt senior played in 41 games for the Bears and was granted a rare sixth year of eligibility this season due to past injuries. It is eligibility that Johnson could have used next season, but after registering 59 tackles and 5.5 sacks over his career in blue and gold, the 6'4", 290-pound defensive end will try his trade in the NFL. - Daily Californian

  After five seasons in blue and gold, Cal offensive lineman Jake Curhan will say his goodbye to Memorial Stadium and take his talents to the next level, according to a tweet from the right tackle on New Year's Eve. Curhan's career with the Bears consisted of 40 starts at right tackle after he redshirted his freshman season. The Redwood High School product featured on academic honor rolls and All-Academic teams throughout his time at Cal and featured on All-Pac-12 teams after his junior season. - Daily Californian
