Cal football practice report: Safety Damariay Drew out for season

Best of luck to Damariay!

NCAA Football: California at Washington Jennifer Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Another short practice. Here are your Wednesday Cal practice updates.

Sonny Dykes confirmed that Cal safety Damariay Drew (injured earlier this offseason at the knee) will not be back in time for the 2016 college football season, ending his Cal career. A senior safety, Drew will spend the rest of the season rehabbing and then prepare for the NFL Draft.

Drew was the de facto starter at safety. The current two starting safeties are Khari Vanderbilt and Evan Rambo. Here is the full Cal depth chart.

  • Cal might have two reliable nickel backs in Cameron Walker and Trey Turner, but that isn’t stopping Jaylinn Hawkins from getting reps at the position. Hawkins has also seen a lot of time at safety.
  • Offensive line coach Brandon Jones made it clear that Dwayne Wallace will be starting at right guard, but Jeremiah Stuckey will be the super sub at left guard or right guard.

Here’s a feature for you to meet new starting Cal quarterback Davis Webb, who talks a little bit about the culture shock transferring from Lubbock to Berkeley.
