Cal redshirt sophomore QB Spencer Brasch has announced his intent to transfer. The news comes on the eve of the Cal Spring Game, where it was expected to see a battle for the position of backup QB between Brasch and Zach Johnson.
Brasch becomes the second QB to leave this month, following the departure of Jaden Casey. The former 3-star QB, from Higley in Gilbert, Arizona, played in just 2 games in his Cal career. Both games were as a true freshman in 2019, while maintaining his redshirt during that season. He stepped in after Devon Modster was injured during the 21-17 loss to Oregon State game in 2019, going 2/6 for 24 yards and 1 interception. He then started the following game in Utah. The shorthanded Bears were blown to then #12 Utah, 35-0. In a game where S Ashtyn Davis lined up at WR, Brasch went 7/19 for 47 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.
We thank you for your time in Berkeley, Spencer! We wish you nothing but the best wherever you go!
