The 2020 California Golden Bears football season is still a ways away, but since it’s set to be the biggest return of sports in college, we’re already diving deep into it’s return.
With that in mind, we’re jumping into the returning production for the Golden Bears on the offensive side of the ball, and we’ll start right away with the returners on the receiving end of Chase Garbers’ arm.
And so with that in mind, here’s what the Golden Bears return from the 2019 season.
Cal returns 85.2% of its targeted receivers. Meaning, 85.2% of all throws from the 2019 season were intended to a receiver who will be returning this fall.
Obviously, the only major contributor that is gone from the receiving corps is Jordan Duncan, but it’s still refreshing to see the amount of targets returning are familiar faces for Garbers and Co.
The Bears return 87.8% of their receptions, again only Duncan’s 25 catches are a big culprit towards the number here. Cal also returns 85.9% of its yards and 89.5% of its receiving touchdowns from the 2019 season.
