Senior RB Leaves a Crowded-ish RB Room as a Graduate Transfer
Oof, this one hurts. Guess we have to expect a higher-than-normal level of transfers with all the extra eligibility and crowded position groups piling up.
This one hurts though because he was my favorite RB. Wish him the best of luck (at a school not playing Cal next year).
This sucks! I thought it was odd that Brooks wasn't #1 from the start of the year. I thought he was clearly the better overall back & he appeared to be healthy all year. One time Cal commit, Adrian Martinez, has entered the transfer portal and is considering between Kansas St. & Cal.
Dang, and (some) commentators were just figuring out his name change.
Gonna happen a bunch this year unfortunately...I really enjoyed watching Chris, and he was a helluva weapon in the passing game for a big back.
Isn't it the case that for many players they either can't get into graduate programs at Cal or Cal doesn't offer a program of interest to them? Or are there other sorts of "graduate" certificates and programs that have been developed that have a lower entry bar? I wish Brooks all the best and he will always be a Golden Bear!
Ugh. Criminally underused. If he just had 20 touches a game, we're probably at least 8-4 instead of 5-7. Best of luck to him - hopefully he'll join a team that will let him showcase his abilities to the fullest.
Damn, I'll miss Brooks. Helluva back and I always enjoyed how tough he ran with the ball.
Sad, but I kinda felt this was coming
