Cal WR Makai Polk enters transfer portal

Big loss for Cal if he finds a new home.

The California Golden Bears are losing a key wide receiver for their 2021 plans. Makai Polk is entering the portal.

After showing promise in his first season with 19 catches, 295 yards and two touchdowns, Polk became Chase Garbers’s second favorite target in Cal’s abbreviated 2020 campaign, grabbing 17 catches, 183 yards and a touchdown.

With Trevon Clark’s status still in limbo (he is currently on leave from the program), Cal is now down to three wide receiver contributors from their 2020 campaign for the 2021 season: Kekoa Crawford (who still has to announce whether he’s returning or not), Nikko Remigio, and Monroe Young.

Expect true freshman J. Michael Sturdivant (who did play last season in Texas, unlike most 2020 commits due to COVID) to make noise for an opening spot, as well as redshirt freshmen Jeremiah Hunter, Justin Baker, Aiden Lee, Mason Magnum and Tommy Christakos.

This is not a deep group at the moment. Lots of opportunities for playing time though!
