Cal head coach Jeff Tedford unveils his depth chart for the season opener against Nevada, highlighted by true freshman Bryce Treggs starting at wide receiver opposite Keenan Allen.

BERKELEY, Calif. – As California pivots from fall camp to preparing for its season opener against Nevada, head coach Jeff Tedford met with the media for lunch and revealed the week one depth chart.

Offense Two-Deep Starters listed in bold
WR Keenan Allen
Chris Harper

LT Tyler Rigsbee
Bill Tyndall

LG Jordan Rigsbee
Alejandro Croswaite

C Brian Schwenke
Chris Adcock

RG Chris Adcock
Geoffrey Gibson

RT Matt Summers-Gavin
Matt Williams

TE Richard Rodgers
Spencer Hagan

WR Bryce Treggs
Maurice Harris

QB Zach Maynard
Allan Bridgford

FB Eric Stevens
Dasarte Yarnway

TB Isi Sofele OR
C.J. Anderson

Immediate Reactions: No surprises on offense, especially with Harris’ sore knee during the second week of camp giving Treggs an opening for the true freshman to vault into the starting lineup. A slimmed-down Anderson made a strong impression, which means the running back rotation will be much closer to 50-50 between him and Sofele than it was last season.

Defense Two-Deep
DE Aaron Tipoti
Todd Barr

NG Kendrick Payne
Viliami Moala

DE Deandre Coleman
Keni Kaufusi

OLB Chris McCain
Dan Camporeale

ILB Robert Mullins
Nick Forbes

ILB J.P. Hurrell
Jalen Jefferson

OLB Brennan Scarlett
Nathan Broussard

CB Marc Anthony
Adrian Lee

S Josh Hill
Michael Lowe

S Alex Logan
Tyre Ellison

CB Steve Williams
Kameron Jackson

Immediate Reactions: Seniority seems to have pushed Hurrell over the top, as he was barely even mentioned by Tedford or the press before Wednesday. When healthy, expect David Wilkerson to see significant action at that spot. Same goes at defensive end, where an active Mustafa Jalil should give the Bears an elite pair of bookends.

Quick Hits
After playing wide receiver in fall camp, freshman Cedric Dozier will move to defensive back. Tedford said it was Dozier’s decision. … Tedford said he expects only Treggs, Harper, Darius Powe, tight end/fullback Maximo Espitia, and punter Cole Leininger to play immediately from the Bears’ most recent signing class, though that could change. … Austin Hinder will serve as the third quarterback, while freshman Zach Kline will travel with the team for road games. … Cal held a mock game Tuesday night to test operations at the renovated Memorial Stadium, while giving the team a chance to conduct situational work.
