Cal loses two more offensive starters to the transfer portal
The hits keep coming for the Cal offense this offseason. With the team’s quarterback situation in limbo, Cal lost a pair of pass-catchers to the transfer portal this week.
Wideout J. Michael Sturdivant has entered the portal, according to multiple reports. A former 4-star wideout out of the 2021 class, Sturdivant had 755 receiving yards and seven touchdowns this season for the Golden Bears. His 65 receptions ranked first on the team, as did his touchdown catches.
He was a consensus top-200 recruit and a top-30 wideout coming out of high school. As a true freshman in 2021, he appeared in only four games — mostly on special teams — to preserve a redshirt. He’ll have three years of eligibility at his next school.
Cal also lost tight end Jermaine Terry II to the transfer portal on Thursday. Terry wasn’t much of a factor in the pass game — bringing in seven receptions for 41 yards in his 12 appearances — but he was a full-time starter throughout the year and used primarily as a blocker.
The 6-foot-4 Terry was also a 2021 signee for Cal. He’ll have three years to play two at his next stop.
