CSDTV: Nick Forbes on Scrimmage
BERKELEY -- California starting middle linebacker Nick Forbes notched just three tackles on Saturday during the Bears' second scrimmage of the spring, but despite what he and head coach Sonny Dykes called "vanilla" defense, the players are taking well to defensive coordinator Andy Buh's new scheme.
Defensive tackle Deandre Coleman continues to have a stellar spring after moving inside from defensive end, tallying four tackles, including 1.0 TFL (a sack for -3 yards). Four other Bears -- Nathan Broussard, Jalen Jefferson, Hardy Nickerson and Avery Sebastian had four tackles apiece.
Nickerson had a nice stop on quarterback Jared Goff, who gained three yards on a zone read before being spun to the ground by the redshirt freshman linebacker, who's NFL-great father was in the stands, watching, along with former Cal and Major League baseball player Jerry Goff -- Jared's father.
While he didn't show up much on the defensive stat list, Stefan McClure made his presence felt in the secondary, jamming up physical Maurice Harris so hard on a third-and-nine attempt by Kyle Boehm that the pass sailed a good 10 yards beyond Harris's hands.
McClure also teamed up with Sebastian to take down Jeffrey Coprich on a first-and-10 run after the redshirt freshman running back stiff-armed Dan Camporeale for a gain of five.
Interior defensive lineman Harrison Wilfley tallied a QB hurry on Goff's final drive.
Cornerback Cedric Dozier and safety Michael Lowe each had two tackles, while Viliami Moala tallied a sack on Zach Kline after he faked a handoff to Lucas Gingold.
