  • If you don’t know what Cal Football has been off to so far this offseason, The Daily Cal has you covered:

With the 2020 recruiting class set — and a handful of them already on campus — Cal heavily invested in improving its offense, reeling in some quality talent across the board. Highlighted by highly touted 4-star tight end D.J. Rogers, the Bears are clearly trying to add athleticism to their receiving core. The class features three receivers who are at least 6’2” and a few others who can add blistering speed in recruits, such as Justin Baker and Mason Mangum.

The quarterback room will also have some added competition, as head coach Justin Wilcox was able to grab Jaden Casey, who held offers from the likes of Alabama and Indiana, while running back Chris Street will immediately push for the backup role behind Christopher Brown Jr.


  • Freshman Nevaeh DeSouza has been a rising star on the Women’s Gymnastics team. This pre-season article spotlights some of her accomplishments pre-Cal, notably a Perfect 10 on the Vault.
  • The Bears couldn’t outscore No. 3 Utah last week, but still looked very impressive.
