BERKELEY -- California was without right guard Jeremiah Stuckey and receiver Vic Wharton due to academics on Monday, as the Bears returned to practice following a one-day respite, and while the route-running and timing between the quarterbacks and receivers was certainly off, there were two bright spots: Demetris Robertson and Zion Echols. Robertson, in his first kickoff return of the fall, knifed through coverage for what would have been a touchdown, thanks to a block from his return partner, fellow freshman Melquise Stovall.
For the second straight practice, Echols impressed. While he ran three times for 30 yards on Saturday in full pads, he ripped off a 55-yard run on Monday in uppers, and then finished things off with a five-yard touchdown plunge.
We'll have more from fall camp soon, but for now, take a gander at our live practice thread (members).
