Practice Notes From Friday
More than half of the 2013 California signing class was on the field for Friday's short walk-through, including the five spring enrollees Jared Goff, Matt Anderson, Drake Whitehurst, Sione Sina and Kyle Kragen, as well as Ray Hudson, Erik Bunte, Aaron Cochran, Trevellous Cheek, Jacobi Hunter, Darius Allensworth, Ray Davison, Caleb Coleman and Cameron Walker.
Four-star cornerback Troy Vincent, Jr. -- son of 15-year NFL veteran Troy Vincent, Sr. -- was also in attendance, as was two-star Sandy (Utah) Jordan wide receiver Cliff Betson.
2014 defensive back commit Koa Farmer was also in the house, and both he and Vincent will be at Memorial Stadium for Saturday's spring game and junior day.
The order of the day was mainly shoring up offensive execution, as well as installing a few trick plays, including halfback passes, flea flickers and the like. Maurice Harris, Kenny Lawler, Bryce Treggs and Drake Whitehurst each turned in notable plays on reverses down inside the red zone.
Quarterbacks Austin Hinder and Goff made nice TD grabs on halfback passes.
The defense came up with two coverage sacks of Zach Kline with airtight coverage during seven-on-seven work, and Hardy Nickerson tallied an end-zone pass break-up with his NFL-great father looking on.
Jackson Bouza made a nice grab in seven-on-seven work on a pass from Hinder, finding the seam in coverage between Nickerson and Michael Lowe.
Athletic Director Sandy Barbour -- who's been logging just as many freeway miles as Cal Sports Digest thanks to the Cal basketball team's NCAA Tournament run in nearby San Jose -- was also on hand for the entire practice, and eagerly asked for updates from the Cal baseball team's thrilling 5-1 win over No. 11 UCLA as practice wound down.
