Bear Insider Video: Cal Frosh Cornerback Jeremiah Earby

August 9, 2022

Jeremiah Earby, a 6-2/185 pound freshman cornerback out of East Palo Alto, CA, is all on board
and adjusting well to the program since fall camp commenced last week.

“So far, my adjustment has been good,” said Earby. “All of the players have been helpful with
helping me go places, wherever I need to be. And everyone’s just been a welcoming family. I
feel like overall, this has been a great time, and being here and being adjusted, transitioning
from high school to college has been good for me.”

The talented frosh from Menlo-Atherton was a two-way star for his squad, excelling both at receiver and at corner. He’s impressed so far during camp, leading the team with three interceptions so far in four practices. His 6’2 length is another plus for a program always looking for talented longer corners to cover the taller receivers so common in the conference.

Earby has facilitated new relationships and built chemistry with his teammates on and off the
field with the 2023 class as well.

“As a class, I’d say we’re very close, you know. At the dorms, we’re all buddies and everything,
and it’s just great being around other people in my class,” Earby states. When asked about who
some of the bigger personalities are in the group, he was quick to come up with a couple of
teammates; Jordan King and Cam Sidney, stating:

“I would say, Jordan King. He has a very good personality, very animated. And I’ll say Cam
Sidney; it’s just something about him.”

As for personal goals heading into the upcoming season, one of Earby’s focuses is on putting in
the work to appear in enough games to not redshirt.

“Heading into the season, of course, I don’t want to redshirt, so I want to be able to play in at
least four games and not have to redshirt,” says Earby. “Make the depth chart and stuff like that.
Get on special teams and just work hard.”

Earby confidently explained that the goal for the program this season is to walk away as Pac-12
champions and to do so, everyone must put in the necessary effort, even if it is just to get one
percent better, every day.

If his early camp performance is any indication, the talented frosh is far ahead of the 1% a day goal and may well find himself in this season’s rotation.
