The California Golden Bears have ‘excused’ WR Trevon Clark from the program for ‘personal reasons,’ according to head coach Justin Wilcox.
“Trevon is excused for personal reasons right now and we’ll update you moving forward,” Wilcox said.
Though unclear why this all came about now, nor when we can expect him to return, Wilcox was prompted to answer the question after Clark was left off the depth chart ahead of this week’s matchup with the Washington State Cougars.
Clark did not play last week against Oregon and has caught just four passes all season long after transferring from Ventura Junior College a season ago. During his first season with Cal, he caught 18 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.
Originally from Victorville in San Bernardino County, Clark caught 89 passes for 1,561 yards and a whopping 20 touchdowns during his time in JUCO at Ventura. Former Cal receiver Geoff McArthur was his coach at Ventura.
We’ll continue to update with anything else that pops up in this case but it is also worth noting that Clark became a father prior to the season last year and we hope all is well with him, his family and his friends.
