Who's Leaving the Pac-12 in 2021?

February 22, 2021

The western United States is home to some of the country’s most touted college football prospects. With the NFL Draft set for April, a new breed of talent will be brought into the pros, and each Pac-12 team will consequently look different in some way, shape or form.

How does that, in combination with the transfer portal, affect each team going into 2021? We take a look with a list of departures and summary for each team.

CAL (1-3)

The Golden Bears aren’t as hurt this offseason as most other Pac-12 schools, losing just three starters from 2020. The loss of All-Pac-12 DB Cam Bynum certainly hurts, but ultimately Cal will return 19/22 of last year’s starters and bring in the Pac-12’s 3rd best recruiting class, making a strong case for an improved season.

QB Chase Garbers will return in 2021

Protected by an experienced offensive line, Chase Garbers will once again take the helm of the Bears offense, throwing to veteran WRs Nikko Remigio and Kekoa Crawford, and handing it off to a deep stable of capable running backs. NFL vet Bill Musgrave will need to will this offense to better yardage totals and redzone success in 2021, after the Bears averaged a meager 319.5 yards/game and 20.3 ppg.

On the defensive side, Cal returns captain Kuony Deng to lead a unit that ranked in the top half of most Pac-12 defensive stats. Cameron Goode and JH Tevis will help solidify a dominant D-Line and Elijah Hicks will lead an experienced secondary.

With so much experience returning, Cal has no excuse not to win more games in 2021.

STANFORD (4-2)

With question marks at it’s most well-known positions, Stanford is forced to make big changes offensively in 2021. David Shaw is tasked with replacing his starting quarterback, top-two wide receivers, top tight-end and three standout offensive linemen.

Stanford’s running back Austin Jones will return in 2021

The Cardinal’s offense was it’s bread and butter in 2020, ranking third in yards/game, second in pass yards/game, and second in rushing tds. Expect the tree to struggle in 2021 as it converts either Jack West or Isaiah Sanders to be it’s starting QB - neither of which has thrown a CFB touchdown - and rely on a new offensive line and wide reciever corp.

Defensively, the Cardinal looks weak and inexperienced with none shouting NFL potential the way draft commits Paulson Adebo, Curtis Robinson or Thomas Schaffer did. Even with those three, the Tree’s defense was poor in 2020, ranking 9th in yards/game and 8th in ppg. Stanford hasn’t finished as a ranked team since 2017. Breakout performances are needed for it to happen again this year.

WASHINGTON (3-1)

The Huskies won’t be left hungry offensively in 2021 with All-Pac-12 First Teamers Jaxson Kirkland (LT) and Cade Otton (TE) choosing to return and forgo the NFL Draft. They’ll contribute to a healthy and experienced front-line, with every member having started in 2021, helping move forward a a solid trio of running backs as well.

The only question marks on offense are the wide-receiver unit, which basically has no experience, and the quarterback position, which was fought for and won by Dylan Morris last semester, but will be contested by Sam Huard, the No. 2 incoming recruit at that position.

UW retains not as much strength defensively with their cornerstone DBs leaving in Elijah Molden and Keith Taylor, and two other defensive players declaring for the NFL Draft as well. They have at least one established player at each line of defense, but ultimately 7/11 are unproven. Look to Ryan Bowman (DL), Edefuan Ulofoshio (LB), and Dominique Hampton (CB) to lead each defensive unit.

OREGON (4-3)

The Ducks lose a lot in 2021 with their starting QB, RB, safeties, defensive tackles, and two cornerbacks leaving. Oregon maintains depth in some of those departments, but a change at quarterback along with defensive coordinator is bound to create some bumps down the road.

Oregon safety Brady Breeze has declared for the NFL Draft

Tyler Shough’s departure is likely due to his dwindling performances and reduction in playing time as the 2020 season went on. Graduate transfer Anthony Brown picked up some of the slack and impressed, but he may compete with highly-touted, incoming 4-star recruit Ty Thompson.

On the defensive side, Oregon loses the heart of its defensive line in DTs Jordon Scott and Austin Faoliu along with 5 stud defensive backs. Nike’s flagship CFB team churns talent, and the consequence is high turnover due to high competition and performance. The Ducks, however, will still retain their two All-Pac-12 first team performers in DE Kayvon Thibodeaux and CB Mykael Wright.

OREGON STATE (2-5)

 With QBs Tristan Gebbia and Chance Nolan gaining valuable experience in 2020, the quarterback position in Corvallis looks intact for the next few years. Combine that with one of the best offensive lines returning, and the Beavers aren’t in the worst position this year (*cough Stanford *cough Arizona). The absence of RB Jermar Jefferson will certainly be a drawback next season, but the Beavers will bring in former South Carolina RB Deshaun Fenwick, who averaged 5.4 yards as a backup in three seasons, to pick up some slack. 

OSUBeavers.com
QB Chance Nolan will return in 2021 after starting OSU’s last three games

On the defensive side, the Beavers return a unit that was third worst in the conference in points/game and yards/game in 2020. The loss of Hamilcar Rashed and Nahshon Wright is not going to help.

Without a clear leader on defense or playmaker on offense, expect the Beavers to struggle in 2021.

2021 NFL Draft

  • Jermar Jefferson (RB) (R-SR)**
    • First Team All-Pac-12 ‘20

WASHINGTON STATE (1-3)

The Cougars will return in 2021 with Nick Rolovich in his second year as their head coach. After a promising 38-28 victory over OSU in Week 1 of 2020, they would go on to lose every game and finish with a 1-3 record. Going into 2021, WSU is fortunate to lose only two starters.

CougCenter.com
Pac-12 2019 Honorable Mention RB Max Borghi will return

2021 should be better for the Cougars as their offensive star Max Borghi will return to the lineup after an injury plagued 2020 season. He’ll be helped by an Abraham Lucas led o-line, and if freshman QB Jayden De Laura, who is dealing with a DUI, can return then the offense will look solid.

Defensively, WSU has a lot to improve on after allowing a staggering 38.5 points per game last season. Linebackers Travell Harris and Renard Bell will lead that unit.

2021 NFL Draft

  • Blake Mazza (K) (R-JR)**
    • All-Pac-12 First Team ‘19

USC (5-1)

The Trojans were really good in 2020, and the consequence is that they’re losing a lot to the NFL Draft. In sheer volume alone, USC is the hardest hit team in the Pac-12, losing seven starters to the draft and one to the transfer portal. The loss of WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown and Tyler Vaughns for example leaves some big shoes for Drake London and Bru McCoy to fill, but they have the size and talent to do it.

USC QB Kedon Slovis

Offensively, USC doesn’t look like the team they were last season, losing All-Pac-12 first teamers Alijah Vera-Tucker and St. Brown. Add the loss of Markese Stepp and Vaughns, this unit is left with little proven talent. Lucky for USC, they still have the best QB in the Pac-12 in Kedon Slovis, but when you combine him with their poor run game (worst in the Pac-12), mediocre offensive line, Slovis might not have many toys to play with in 2021. 

Defensively, USC looks good, having ranked top-4 in yards/game, passing-yards/game, rushing yards/game, and points/game in 2020. They have veterans and newcomers to replace Talanoa Hufanga and Olaijah Griffin in the secondary, and a plethora of huge defensive lineman that are the envy of the conference. USC’s defense looks good going into 2021.

UCLA (3-4)

The Bruins are one of the least affected teams this offseason, losing just two starters in the offseason in Osa Odighizuwa (DT) and Demetric Felton (RB), who both declared for the NFL Draft. The team went 3-4 in 2020 and will bring back a healthy, experienced unit. 

Bear Insider
First Team All-Pac-12 defensive tackle Osa Odighizuwa

At the helm of the Pac-12’s second-most prolific offense, Dorian-Thompson Robinson had a breakout season for UCLA with 1,120 yards, 12 tds, and 4 ints on 65% of his passes, along with 306 yards and 3 tds on the ground. Combine that with a healthy, full-returning o-line and you have a recipe for offensive success in 2021. Running backs and wide receivers are the only question marks.

On the defensive side, UCLA is in a bit of a pickle, ranking second in 2020 in rush yards allowed/game, but second to last in pass yards allowed/game. Losing their best DT isn’t going to help, and they’ll look to Caleb Johnson (ILB) and Mitchell Agude (OLB) to take on leadership roles.

2021 NFL Draft 

  • Demetric Felton (RB) (R-SR)**
    • All-Pac-12 Second Team ‘20

Arizona (0-5)

The situation in Tuscon is a hot mess going into 2021, and the problems extend far past the players. After firing everyone, Arizona’s coaching staff is so brand new that it’s glistening. Accompany that with a weak roster, and 2021 isn’t looking so pretty. 

Mike Christy / Arizona Athletics
2020 Pac-12 honorable mention Anthony Pandy

Starting with the offense, Arizona doesn’t have a quarterback. The talented Grant Gunnel has opted to enter the transfer portal (who can blame him), leaving Will Plummer, who threw for no touchdowns and 3 picks in his three games, as the Wildcats’ most experienced QB. Redshirt sophomore Kevin Doyle, who hasn’t seen any game action, is the projected No. 2.

Coaches and quarterbacks aside, there is a slight glimmer of hope in Arizona’s offensive line, which returns as the same healthy unit in 2021. The Wildcats also have a good linebacker corp, led by Jalen Harris and Pac-12 honorable mention Anthony Pandy. Still, there’s not much to be optimistic about for a team that ranked last in yards allowed/game, points allowed/game, and points/game. It’s an uphill climb for Arizona and it’s new coaching staff.

Arizona State (2-2)

On paper, Arizona State was the best Pac-12 team in 2020, and their 2-2 record from a shortened season doesn’t do them justice. The Sun Devils averaged the most points/game at 40.3 and the least allowed/game with 23.3. With just two 2020 starters leaving, Herm Edwards is in a great position to put his team back on top of the South Division this year.

thesundevils.com
ASU QB Jayden Daniels

On offense, ASU returns one of the Pac-12’s deepest RB committees in Rachaad White, Chip Trayanum and Daniyel Ngata, who combined for 7 yards/attempt with 818 yards and 10 tds on the ground last season. They’ll be joined by QB Jayden Daniels who is one of the best in the conference. 

On defense, ASU has a deep stable of defensive backs that are experienced and hungry for interceptions and pass deflections. They are stabilized by two highly experienced linebackers in Merlin Robertson and Darien Butler.

Utah (3-2)

All-Pac-12 first team OL Nick Ford (55)

If not for their lack of QB or RBs, the Utah Utes would be primed as one of the best Pac-12 teams going into 2021. The tragic death of 2020 All-Pac-12 RB Ty Jordan, however, and departure of QB Jake Bentley to the transfer portal, leaves them with little in those two departments.

Utah has talent at every other position though, with lots of size on the defensive side and experienced o-linemen and wide receivers. The Utes were second in the conference in points allowed last season, so they’ll be a tough team to beat if Andy Ludwig can muster an offense.

COLORADO (4-2)

Despite having an offense and defense that ranked at the bottom of the Pac-12 in 2020, Karl Dorell was able to lead the Buffaloes to a 4-2 record in his incredible return. In 2021, the Buffaloes return All-Pac-12 RB Jarek Broussard and freshman QB Brendon Lewis who could be a future star for their offense.

New defensive coordinator Chris Wilson will need to revitalize that side of the football for this team to improve in 2021 after losing All-Pac-12 second team DT Mustafa Johnson to the upcoming draft. The Buffaloes allowed nearly 32 points a game in 2020, and LB Nate Landman will lead the group.

The place kicker had several blocked, including a game tier against Stanford. What are we-doing to fix that and is the same kicker going to hold on to his job?

Unfortunately I rewatched the Stanford game yesterday as The Comish decided to do an encore.

He's gone back and added Cal to the story.
Thanks. In 2021, I suspect that Cal will exceed the number of wins they posted in 2020. Whether they surpass .500 in conference games is another story.....

Nice breakdown.
Maybe pac-12 will be playing at a higher level in 2021 with all of these super seniors. Of course the effect of covid could cancel that out.

That shouldn't be difficult, since we won only 1 game in the shortened 2020 season.

Ding! Ding! Ding! You got it. My observation was in response to the last sentence in the Cal segment. It is nice to see that someone else picked up on the same remark.
