Cal tight end Jermaine Terry enters the portal, Oregon State TE J.T. Byrne ends up at Cal
More roster upheaval for the Bears.
Cal tight end Jermaine Terry has entered the transfer portal, joining his compatriot Keleki Latu.
Terry started last season, catching seven passes for 41 yards.
These losses are tough but expected, as new offensive coordinator Jake Spavital has generally run offenses that do not emphasize tight end play. But it doesn’t make the losses any easier. Both Latu and Terry are talented players that seemed to be underutilized last season by Bill Musgrave, and with the right coaching could’ve made a significant difference.
Cal did stop the bleeding a little bit with the commitment of tight end J.T. Bryne, who entered the portal from Oregon State yesterday. He played in nine games in 2021, logging no game stats as a redshirt freshman.
The Cal offense has seen a number of key losses in the portal from their 2022 campaign.

And now our top two tight ends.
Cal has peppered over some of the losses with Byron Cardwell and now Byrne, but more transfers are needed in a hurry.
