Cal Football Gets a New WR for the Bear Raid

Two-year starter Trevor Davis has elected to transfer from the University of Hawaii. A native Californian from Martinez, he'll sit out this next year per NCAA transfer rules. He should have 3 years to play 2.

Davis was rated as high as 3* out of high school. He has good size (6'2) and runs a 4.4. He was impressive enough as a true frosh to earn a starting position for most of the season. His sophomore year was cut in half due to injury.

During spring ball, he was one of Hawaii's top wideouts before deciding to transfer. Scout.com had this to say about his spring performance:

Trevor Davis, in particular, appears to be fully recovered from his injury plagued sophomore campaign and has been basically unstoppable in practice so far this spring. It's pretty clear that he's the #1 option and Taylor Graham confirmed this by zoning in on him on just about every non-run play that was called. My biggest trepidation here with Trevor has always been his weight. He has spectacular hands and athleticism, but somehow always looked like he was one big hit away from bending and breaking (he was listed last year at 170 which was...generous to say the least.) This year he looks quite a bit more filled out and frankly, attacks the ball with a hunger that I hadn't seen from him before.

There's a lot to like from his highlight tape. He shows good hands and the ability to make tough catches while being tightly covered. He also flashes some elusiveness in the open field as well as the wheels to be a deep threat. In many ways, he reminds you of Chris Harper with his smoothness and versatility.

Two years of starting experience playing in Hawaii's spread offense should have him ready to compete for snaps in the Bear Raid after his transfer year. Welcome to Cal! Go Bears!
