Just got done watching the first 20 minutes of practice. As always, nothing to see but drillwork.
But one noticeable absence was wide receiver Tevin Carter, who apparently has quit the team. A very well-placed source told me Tuesday that this could be coming down, but it wasn’t finalized at that point. Apparently, Carter is homesick, was struggling with Cal’s academics and simply isn’t that into football anymore. I’ll have an update after practice.
Also, ESPN.com’s Ted Miller is reporting that, not surprisingly, Tedford has decided that the three finalists in the quarterback competition are Brock Mansion, Zach Maynard and Allan Bridgford. That’s sure how it looked after watching Saturday’s practice. I’ll have more on that later tonight as well.
One point of interest from the first portion of practice: Former Cal star running back Jahvid Best is on hand to watch.
