Quite a day...

Cal beat out their counterpart in Davis for two football recruits on the same day!

We should lock up Ragle for the future. This is his class.

Nice footwork setting in the pocket.
Good judgement in the RPO game.
Some nice passes while scrambling.
Nice elusiveness and speed when running.
Arm strength looks decent --- but lots of his passes were to wide open receivers behind the defense. We'll need to see how he is when he has to look off defenders and make tighter passes.

Nice get, Go Bears!

Now we're a'talkin'!

Coach Wilcox and Blueblood now seem to be operating on the same page., i.e., he is 6'-3" and
can run as well as pass!

"He could probably throw the ball threw through a brick wall." But I digress.

Spencer is an amazing athelete. What I like most about his background is the leadership position he's taken on his team, and his willingness to take on any role his coaches ask him to fulfill. He could be our first "three-way" player: QB, Safety and Punter.

Then he could pitch for the BB team, and drop in on the volleyball team for big matches. Oh, and win the Pac-12 triple-jump in track during the Spring.

All while getting top marks academically.

Our ability to successfully recruit a player this talented speaks to the huge progress our coaching staff is making in recruiting.

Welcome to Cal, Spencer!

Just curious. Is there anything Cal can do that you would approve of?

If he ends up being very good for us, which joke will we hear more of: Brasch Balls or Bill Braschy?

Where's the genius that wants Tui gone? Lol. I love our genius commentators that specialize in buttplay and moonlight as college football coaches.

What's wrong with buttplay? Also, every single person on this site is an expert on college football and basketball, at least.

Buttplay? Well there's a well reasoned post.

He's got huge hands. That's always a comment that I get when college coaches shake his hand. He's got big 'ol paws.

"Big 'ol paws." No more small hands jokes for our QBs.

Wow! Well, that's a really nice vid. He sure does make some nice throws, and his running is impressive. And even with his punting.....I get the impression he hasn't reached his potential punting yet. If he gets just a bit more extension out of that leg, he could add a yard or 2 or 3+. Seems like a terrific young man with great statements about his character. I'm jazzed.

"Dual Threat"
I don't recall any previous quarterback we recruited in recent memory that was described this way.

Nothing it all. But you gotta respect the specialists. The dudes that roll up their sleeves and REALLY get in the mud. We are lucky to retain a number of said specialists.

A "Brasch young quarterback"

I think Brasch is a great get. Could be great at QB, but even if he is beat out by someone else could play safetyor a situational punter on 4th down, with run, pass and punt (providing an 11th on coverage) all an option.

No disrespect to Spencer but I'm pretty sure that VicV, Gilliam, and McIlwain were/are all described that way.

Mark me as very impressed.
1. Strong arm on long and medium range passes.
2. Good field vision and pocket presence.
3. Strong and savvy runner.
4. Respectable punter (for those plays where the QB does a quick kick on 4th down)
5 decent speed and quickness

Only negative appears that he might be a little too Colin Kapernick with the run. But I did notice a few plays where he kept his eyes down field when pocket protection broke down instead of his taking off. And his runs usually looked like designed plays.

I think Maynard was described this way or was it Ayoob?

Plus he's got big hands so he won't have all those issues Goff had

Nothing beats seeing one of your kids do well, does it? A lot of hard work on Spencer's part.

I think for him, the best part of being at Cal may well turn out to be the opportunity to connect with outstanding faculty. It's hard to think of an area where Cal does not have world class faculty & research.

Welcome to Cal too, DB.
