Riley named backup QB

It looks like Coach Tedford announced after yesterday's practice that Kevin Riley would be the back up QB. Riley and Kyle Reed, both top prospects coming in, were competing for the job behind starting QB Nate Longshore.

Reed was a local product who is suppose to be a dual threat QB. He is know for having a fantastic arm and great mobility.

Riley was Oregon's Gatorade State Player of the Year before coming to Cal. From what I have read, he seems similar to Aaron Rodgers. He has great accuracy and pocket presence.

While it is important to have the depth chart set before the start of the season, I don't expect this to settle who the successor to Longshore will be in the future. Expect Reed and Riley and freshman Brock Mansion to continue to battle it out in the upcoming seasons.

But you have to love the fact that Cal has finally reached the level where top rated recruits can get buried in the depth charts because newer great recruits keep signing with Cal. I remember the day when Kyle Boller signed with Cal and from day one he was declared the starter. No way that happens at Cal now and that is a good thing.

A note to Kyle Reed: I read in the Chron how you were going to stick it out at Cal, good, bad, otherwise. Way to go, that's a true Golden Bear. That said - dude, get your degree ASAP and leave yourself the graduate/transfer option to play elsewhere.
