Cal Football QB Spencer Brasch to transfer

The redshirt sophomore will have 4 years left to play

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!
