Adding a big with a redshirt helps our depth and helps balance our classes and gives us a stretch 4

This looks like new uniforms (no lines at the sides anymore which I didn't like)

Welcome to Cal! Glad to get a big, strong guy to clog things up. Scouting report expresses mixed reviews about his mobility, so hopefully they can work on that aspect with plyos, drills to help activate the reaction time and balance. If he pulls that together the sky is the limit.
