More roster upheaval for the Bears.
Terry was kind of my breakout candidate last year, and while the offense was admittedly a disaster, I really wasn't all that impressed with his play. That said, a better and more dynamic offensive mind may have gotten more out of him than Musgrave, but he sure didn't look like a P5 player, despite the size and athleticism.
Something tells me, though, he'll be just fine with proper coaching.
To be fair, we haven't lost Millner yet. He may not get the starting opportunity he was looking for elsewhere, and Cal may still be his best bet to get real playing time next season. I imagine everyone else who hasn't found a school yet is gone gone, though.
Perhaps a new team with a good coaching staff might convince Terry to change positions where he could be a potential terror as an edge rusher, a position he played in high school. Let's hope Byrne can follow in the footsteps of Sekou Sanyika and be the next great Cal player from the Monterey Penninsula.
Everyone seems to be really bummed about Terry leaving because he was such a highly rated 4* recruit. But forget his rating and tell me how well he played the last two years in a system MADE for TE's. He played no where near to the potential that his recruiting scouting report suggested he would play. For his size and strength he was not a good or effective blocker and he did not seem to get open and did drop some easy catches. Hopefully he will do much better where ever he ends up. I want nothing but success for him. And just to show you that highly ranked TE's can be a bust, check out Arik Gilbert. I don't think there are many guys with a 5* rating and higher than a .9972 score. Yet he's been to LSU, FL, GA and is transferring again. https://247sports.com/Player/Arik-Gilbert-94709/
Sometimes the highly regarded guys are just a bust.
I like our new kid, JT Byrne, from Oregon State. He's 6'6" like Latu. He's big. He's a multi sport athlete who has yet to participate in Spring drills (I'm sure he will at CAL if he want's playing time and I'm sure that was part of the discussion with his new coach). Let's see what he can do, but one thing is for sure, and he CAN block well. i'm not dying with the departure of some of our guys like some on this thread.
But, unless we get ourselves a solid QB we will be in trouble.
If we have desperate need on the OL, why have we not seen any commits? Should we be concerned? Can we even field a team?
Program is rotting at the head with Wilcox. Clearly he has no buy-in from players, recruits or fans.
It’s just musical chairs at this point. Hopefully the new opportunities work out!
Haven't we got a transfer QB from James Madison?
Can't blame Terry, though with Latu leaving you'd think that would result in more opportunities, but he sure seemed underutilized.....
Afraid to compete (or unable - Terry's lack of production/development has been puzzling)
