Video highlights of Cal quarterback target Chase Garbers at Dana Hills AirStrike

We take a look at Cal target Chase Garbers's standout performance at the Dana Hills (Calif.) AirStrike event over the weekend.

One of California's top quarterback targetsChase Garbers, participated in the Dana Hills (Calif.) AirStrike event over the weekend, along with several of the Bears' other targets at the position.

Garbers was offered early in April, and then visited late last month, using offensive coordinator Jake Spavital's treasured virtual reality apparatus. He's also worked out with No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff during the offseason.

Since Garbers's visit to Cal, he paid a visit to Vanderbilt, and both USC and UCLA have come on strong, as well as Texas A&M.

The first thing to notice about Garbers is his variety of velocities and throws. He's just as comfortable throwing the heater over the middle as he is the long fade to the sidelines. He throws both out of the shotgun and from under center, and he has very quick footwork, though not quite the hot feet that we've been used to seeing in the Tony Franklin System over the last three years. That said, his footwork is very precise, and he does keep his feet moving throughout his reads.

The biggest thing that stands out is his quick release. He carries the ball high and tight, with a quick cock-and-fire motion that allows him time to move from read to read and not waste time winding up and locking on to one. That said, he does, at times, lock on to his first or second read, but that may just be a consequence of the type of event at which he's throwing.

Garbers has a lot of zip on the ball, and spins it very tightly. It's hard not to see at least a shadow of Zach Kline, as he uses that velocity to fire the ball through tight windows.
