Roster Changes

August 4, 2008

Verran Tucker: Tucker was added to the Cal roster today and apparently has qualified academically.  He is a highly touted JC wide receiver that should compete for immediate playing time.  The addition of Tucker will only increase the competition for fourth wide receiver.  Freshman Marvin Jones was expected to compete with Layrelle Cunningham, Drew Glover, Charles Satchell and Jarret Sparks for the position.

Joe Washington: Freshamn WR Joe Washington is not listed on the current roster and it is unclear why.

Donovan Edwards: Last week news broke that Edwards, previously a UCLA commit, changed his mind and decided to enroll at Cal.  Edwards is a Pinole Valley product and will join an already deep and talented offensive line.  He has 4 years to play 3.  I would be remiss not to mention the comotion caused by Edwards reversal.  UCLA writers and fans claimed it was because Edwards could not qualify for UCLA.  Unfortunately for the ill-informed writer, Edwards received an A and a B in his two summer school courses and, in addition to having the necessary credits, also had the necessary grades to go to UCLA.
