"He's going to play a little bit of that inside receiver/fullback guy for us, and could potentially do some things at quarterback," Cal head coach Sonny Dykes told GoldenBearReport Friday at Pac-12 Media Day. "I liked his toughness. I liked the way he responded to the move just as far as putting the team first. That's a hard thing to do, to say we're going to play you some place you've never played before and he's physical and tough and competitive and mean. Guys that can do those things -- and he catches the ball extremely well -- if you're that guy, a tough mean guy with a big body and those kind of hands, this is a good offense for you to play in."
A 3-star quarterback out of Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, Boehm was the 7th ranked pro-style quarterback in his class coming out of high school in 2011.
Sounds like some exciting changes for the Diamond/Axe/Grizzly/Bearnado. We really need a name for this...
With a great Pac-12 Media Day in the books, today's edition of Golden Nuggets is chock-full of footbally goodness. With kickoff around a month away, I don't think anyone's complaining!
