Cal is getting a huge long-term boost to their offensive line prowess with a Jake Spavital special. His former offensive lineman is transferring to be close to home in his final year of eligibility.
Stuckey played a lot of left guard last season for Texas A&M before losing his starting job to Keaton Sutherland, and it appears wants to finish his college career closer to home. As a graduate transfer Stuckey will not have to redshirt this season and will be part of the rotation this season. He could probably play anywhere on the offensive line.

Stuckey hails originally from the Bay Area, growing up in nearby Pacifica. Stuckey went to CCSF in his first year of eligibility, transferred to A&M, redshirted year, and played in both 2014 and 2015.
"Jeremiah is coming home for his final collegiate season and we're excited he is going to do that at Cal," Dykes said. "He was a very heavily recruited offensive lineman coming out of San Francisco City College when he signed at Texas A&M and with his level of experience we're looking forward to him competing for a starting job right away. I know he's also excited to get a master's degree from Cal."
"Having been raised in the Bay Area, I am excited to finish my collegiate career in front of friends and family," Stuckey said. "I am also looking forward to earning master's degree at Cal."
Stuckey spent three seasons with the Aggies and played in a total of 14 games with five starts as Texas A&M rolled up a 25-14 mark during his three campaigns. Stuckey made all five of his starts among six games played as a 2015 junior with the Aggies going 4-1 in those contests. Stuckey also played in eight games off the bench as a 2014 sophomore.
