Cal sophomore WR Demetris Robertson did not play in Saturday's win over Ole Miss due to an undisclosed injury concern.

The extent of Robertson's injury has not yet been divulged, but we should receive an update on Monday. In two games this season, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder has caught seven passes for 70 yards while rushing for 40 yards and a touchdown on two carries.
Sep 17 - 12:18 PM

Cal junior RB Patrick Laird ran for 78 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in a 27-16 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.

It wasn't the dominant effort that he had against Weber State, but Laird (6'0/200) was also facing a much tougher defense, so that makes sense. Essentially replacing Tre Watson for the remainder of the year, Laird shows the ability to make people miss, and he's also a capable receiver who caught five passes for 28 years on Saturday. His touchdown was a 13-yard dash that gave Cal a 7-3 lead in the middle of the first quarter. He'll get another tough test next weekend when the Golden Bears host USC.

Cal junior RB Tre Watson (lower body injury) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

It's a major loss for the Cal offense. Watson suffered the injury against Weber State last Saturday. The versatile running back had a monster game in week one against UNC, and was being counted on as a focal point of the Bears offense. In his place, Cal will go with junior Patrick Laird, with senior Vic Enwaire subbing in on short-yardage plays.
Sep 11 - 9:10 PM

Cal junior RB Patrick Laird lowered the boom on Weber State in Saturday's 33-20 win, rushing for 191 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries.

Laird (6'0/200) had an opportunity with Tre Watson exiting due to a knee injury. He more than made good on the chance for playing time, averaging a just-plain-silly 15.9 YPC while busting it for a long run of 73 yards (that one going for a touchdown with two minutes remaining in the game). While this was a beautiful performance for the junior back, it may well have been a one-off: Prior to this contest, Laird had just 74 total rushing yards in his collegiate career.
Sep 9 - 8:56 PM

Cal junior RB Tre Watson left Saturday's game against Weber State early with an apparent knee injury.

Watson was able to hobble to the sideline after what appeared to be an ankle injury, but came back in one player later. That's when he suffered the injury to the knee. He's questionable to return.
Sep 9 - 6:35 PM

Cal redshirt sophomore QB Ross Bowers completed 24-of-38 passes for 363 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in a 35-30 triumph over UNC on Saturday.

The Golden Bears needed almost the entirety of the first two quarters to get their new offense rolling. But once it did, Cal sliced and diced UNC in its first game under Justin Wilcox. Though Cal is no longer running the Bear Raid, it'll throw plenty this year in new OC Beau Baldwin's attack. Bowers is in line for another big day against Weber State next week.
Sep 2 - 4:45 PM

Cal redshirt junior WR Vic Wharton III had five catches for 156 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 35-30 win over UNC.

Wharton's biggest grab was a 67-yard score just before halftime, which helped the Bears begin to dig out of an early 17-7 hole. Wharton played in 11 games and posted a 28-293-1 at Cal in 2016, but he was an integral part of the game plan in the new staff's debut on Saturday. Wharton redshirted in 2015 after transferring over to Cal from Tennessee.
Sep 2 - 4:39 PM

California sophomore WR Melquise Stovall was listed as a third-stringer on the team's depth chart.

Stovall was listed behind Kanawai Noa and Jordan Duncan on the WR-F list. Frankly, this is a stunner. The 5-foot-8, 179-pound Stovall was a four-star recruit who posted a 42-415-3 line as a true freshman in 2016.
Aug 30 - 2:51 PM

Cal redshirt sophomore QB Ross Bowers completed 8-of-12 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for another score in the team's final scrimmage.

"We finished strong so it was good. It was a positive day I thought," Bowers said. He has been competing in camp with South Carolina transfer Brandon McIlwain, Chase Garbers and Chase Forrest. Forrest, long assumed to be the front-runner to finally earn a starting shot after patiently sitting behind Jared Goff and Davis Webb, has fallen behind in this race. Bear Insider's Ben Ross passes along that Forrest "took much fewer snaps than any of the other quarterbacks" during Saturday's scrimmage. Smart money at this point would probably be on Bowers to start when Cal takes on North Carolina on September 2.
Aug 24 - 3:00 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. tagged Cal redshirt senior DT James Looney as the No. 5 senior draft prospect at his position.

Looney (6'3/275) earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention from the coaches after the 2016 season. He started all 12 games for the Golden Bears last season, recording 51 tackles (7.5 for loss) and two sacks along the way.
Jun 29 - 5:17 PM

Cal senior G Dwayne Wallace is no longer with the team.

No reason was given. Losing a starting offensive lineman in late June is obviously a disappointing development for the Golden Bears. The 6-foot-5, 330-pounder started nine of the 12 games he played in last season, his first and last with Cal after Wallace spent his first two years of eligibility at a JUCO. He was set to be Cal’s starting right guard.
Jun 23 - 1:19 PM

Former Oregon redshirt freshman OL Valentino Daltoso transferred to California.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Daltoso reunites with Cal OL coach Steve Greatwood, who recruited Daltoso to Oregon. The Golden Bears offered Daltoso a full scholarship after he walked-on with the Ducks, which means he’ll be eligible to play immediately in 2017. Daltoso has four years of eligibility remaining.
Jun 21 - 12:51 PM

Cal received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 WR Nikko Remigio.

Remigio had an eclectic little top-four consisting of Cal, Wisconsin, Tennessee and UCLA. Scout.com's Greg Biggins is sold on the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder, writing, "He's a natural pass catcher, explosive after the catch and very elusive in the open field. He can be a deep threat as well as a possession receiver and has all the tools to play early at the next level." After finishing a dreadful No. 75 on Rivals' team rankings at the close of the 2017 cycle, the Golden Bears currently sit at a much more respectable No. 45 for the 2018 class.
Jun 17 - 3:47 PM

Cal redshirt sophomore QB Ross Bowers completed 18-of-29 passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns in the team's spring game.

Bowers is locked in competition with Chase Forrest for the right to replace Davis Webb as Golden Bears' signal-caller. There is no current leader in this competition and it would not be a surprise if it lasted well into August camp. OC Beau Baldwin noted near the end of spring practice that "[y]ou could see it in the last week and a half of practices. They both do certain things well. ... I think the more they play the better they're going to get."
Jun 1 - 8:02 PM

Cal junior WR Kanawai Noa caught eight passes for 112 yards in the team's spring game.

"He's tough. He's not afraid of contact or guys hanging on him. I just like the effort at which he plays the game," said OC Beau Baldwin. The 6-foot, 175-pounder was a three-star recruit for the 2015 cycle. He has yet to work into any sort of sizable role with the Golden Bears, having caught just 10 passes for 110 yards over the first two years of his collegiate career.
