After a solid season, Cal is in danger of a huge regression on the offensive line. The California Golden Bears have announced offensive lineman Dwayne Wallace is no longer with the program, meaning Cal is down four starters from last season. Wallace was the projected starting right guard.
With Wallace out of the rotation, the spring depth chart indicates that there will be a battle between giant junior offensive guard Semisi Uluave and a ton of underclassmen, like Daniel Juarez and Tanner Prenovost. To say it loosely, Cal is running out of bodies on the offensive line.
With the loss of Wallace, Cal has now lost four starting offensive linemen, with Chris Borrayo and Dominic Granado graduating and Aaron Cochran transferring. Only Patrick Mekari (starting left tackle) and Addison Ooms (starting center) remain with any significant playing experience. The other current spring starters are Kamryn Bennett at left guard and Jake Curhan at right tackle.
Wallace played a lot as a guard in his lone season with the Bears and proved to be decently effective. Can his backups step up and be effective in a starting role?
