Cal WR Chris Harper, who declared early for the draft, did not receive a Combine invite.

Harper posted 52 receptions, six receiving touchdowns, and 634 receiving yards this year, which was actually a drop down from the previous season. Worse receiver prospects were invited to the event, but Harper will definitely qualify for a regional combine.

Cal junior WR Chris Harper will forego his last season of eligibility and declare for the NFL draft.

It's a surprising decision, as Harper could have helped himself by spending one more season in Cal's pass-happy offense. He posted 52 receptions, six receiving touchdowns, and 634 receiving yards this year. "After having many talks with my family, mentors and coaches I have decided that declaring for the NFL Draft was best for me at this time," Harper stated. "Millions of different thoughts and prayers have been put into this educated decision which is why I have decided to enter the draft." A scout "familiar with the program" called Harper a "poor man's DeSean Jackson" over the summer. Harper has a wiry (5-foot-11, 170 pounds) frame and great agility, though he is not as fast (4.53 forty) nor skilled as Jackson.

Cal senior LS John Sheperdson accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Sheperdson, Cal's three-year snapper, has gone 37 consecutive games without an errant snap. That streak spans his entire career, so Sheperdson should be snapping in an NFL camp near you over the summer.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff boasts sound mechanics and natural accuracy as a thrower, according to Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio. "The 6-4, 210-pound sophomore throws with excellent balance and has above-average accuracy and touch at all three levels," the duo wrote. "Goff also shows strong poise handling the pocket, and flashes the ability to scan the entire field and work through his progression. He will hold on to the ball for too long at times, and can speed up his internal clock, but overall, he has a very high ceiling and a bright future if he can continue to hone his craft." We love Goff's arm and long-term potential, but want to see him work on his accuracy when pressure forces him off his spot.

Former USC DL DeVante Wilson has transferred to Cal with two years of eligibility remaining.

Wilson has played at the JUCO level for the last two seasons after leaving USC following his first season. He tore his ACL prior to that first season after being signed as a three-star recruit.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl said Cal "is in great hands the next few years" with sophomore QB Jared Goff.

"Polish stands out at an early age," Weidl wrote. "Naturally accurate thrower." Goff couldn't quite lead the 5-7 Golden Bears to a bowl game, but expect that to change next season. The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio.

Draft insider Tony Pauline has heard Cal junior WR Bryce Treggs is leaning towards entering the 2015 NFL Draft.

Pauline adds some have even suggested he is gone. "Scouts stamp Treggs as a late rounder," Pauline tweeted. We do not know much about Treggs other than he started opposite Keenan Allen as a freshman and witnessed a major jump in his receiving yards and catches last season. He is listed at 5'11/185 pounds.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 29 of 47 attempts for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 38-30 loss to USC.

Goff was pretty impressive despite his yards per attempt average. The non-draft eligible quarterback has a nice arm and can hit throws at every level of the field, but poor placement when moved off his spot forces missed opportunities. Cal is a team on the rise and could be better next season.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Mike Vernon, Cal junior DE Brennan Scarlett will miss the rest of the season with a partially torn ACL.

Scarlett partially tore the ACL in the team's October 8 match-up with Washington State. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound junior has dealt with several injury concerns over the course of his career. He missed all of the 2013 season with a broken hand. "He’s disappointed obviously," Cal head coach Sonny Dykes said. "He was really starting to kind of come into his own." Since going down, Scarlett has been replaced in the lineup by freshman Noah Westerfield.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 32 of 52 attempts for 360 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 59-41 loss to Oregon.

Goff is quietly putting together a great sophomore campaign, as he outplayed Brett Hundley last week. It is too early to conclude on Goff and Penn State's Christian Hackenberg, but that is a debate to file away. Cal faces Oregon State next week.

California junior WR Trevor Davis (neck) will miss Friday's game against Oregon.

Davis was involved in this past weekend's scariest moment, taking a knee to the head on a fourth-quarter kickoff return versus UCLA. He was carted off the field after laying motionless for a few minutes. Golden Bears coach Sonny Dukes said Davis suffered a "jammed neck," but noted he'd been released from the hospital. "Luckily all the tests came back good, and his long-term prognosis is good," Dykes said on the weekly Pac-12 coaches conference call. Davis has 21 receptions for 360 yards and four touchdowns this season, averaging 51.4 yards per game. Meanwhile, Cal is expecting junior Chris Harper to play, despite a bruised back.

California sophomore S Griffin Piatt will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

A school spokesman confirmed the news, but wouldn't disclose the nature of Piatt's injury. Piatt was California's leader in tackles (32.5), interceptions (3) and passes defended (9). The converted receiver missed all of last year after tearing his ACL in spring practice.

California sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 23-of-41 throws for 449 yards and seven touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's overtime victory over Colorado.

Goff had never gone over four touchdown throws before. Cal's offense has made great progress this season under Sonny Dykes, an evolution apparent in Goff's numbers. He's 79-for-127 (62.2%) for 1,339 yards and a 17/3 TD/INT ratio through four games, during which the Bears are 3-1. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has "extraordinary talent and potential" according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks, who added in May: "The super sophomore is a polished pocket passer with A-plus arm talent and a terrific feel for the position."

Ted Agu's family will file a wrongful death lawsuit against The Regents of the University of California.

Agu died after collapsing during a conditioning workout with teammates in February. Cal team physician Casey Batten said he was pulled out of the run by members of the training staff and transferred by cart to the team's medical facility inside the stadium. "He was on the back of the cart, he was talking, he was hydrating, he did not exhibit any labored breathing or other signs until he got to the north tunnel," Batten said in February. A release from the Agu family's lawyers states, "Despite the symptoms which clearly could and should have been observed, UCB coaches and trainers failed to immediately come to Agu's assistance. It was only after Agu struggled and encountered obvious difficulties for a significant period of time that intervention occurred and he was placed on a cart and taken back towards the stadium, where he collapsed for the last time."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline urges readers to keep an eye on California senior S Michael Lowe.

The Bears obviously don't boast an embarrassment of future pro riches on their current roster, but Lowe is an exception. "Lowe is the only Cal senior who receives mention in scouting circles," Pauline writes. "Lowe is a legitimate NFL prospect and considering the number of late round safeties the program has put into the league, he’s one to watch." The free safety has "nice size," is "instinctive," takes "good angles" and is a "solid open field tackler," according to Pauline.
