While losing Martinez is certainly a blow to the Golden Bears’ 2018 class, it didn’t take long for head coach Justin Wilcox and his staff to offer a new class of 2018 signal caller. And this prospect lives less than 30 minutes away from Berkley.
Cal has offered Marin Catholic (Greenbrae, CA) pro-style quarterback, Spencer Petras. Although Petras has yet to receive a ranking from 247Sports, it doesn’t mean he lacks talent.
Watching his Hudl highlights, one can obviously tell that Petras looks like a collegiate quarterback. He possesses a 6-foot-5, 210 pound frame and a cannon for an arm. However, the thing that stands out the most is how accurate Petras is with his throws. In several of his highlight clips, Petras was able to thread the needle into double coverage, able to find the holes in the defense and threw the ball before his receivers made their cuts.
Although Petras’ accuracy was the main thing that stood out in his film, he is extremely mobile for his height. He ran for 300+ yards and seven touchdowns during his junior campaign.
Currently, Petras holds only two other Power Five offer, Louisville and Syracuse. The rest of the schools to offer the signal caller are Mountain West. However, he has taken a visit to Nebraska. The good thing for Cal is that it has Marin Catholic has produced a Golden Bear quarterback before and a pretty good one by the way: Jared Goff.
