It would have been nice to see Malik McMorris get an invite since he was such a fan favorite and plays a position that’s losing favor in the college game. I’m a little surprised that Patrick Laird wasn’t invited given his production, versatility, and the workload he took on in 2018. But the biggest, most mind-boggling snub was Jordan Kunaszyk, who earned all-conference honors and put up an ungodly number of tackles this year.

It’s unclear if additional players—including Cal players—could be invited if other players drop out for some reason.
