BERKELY, Calif. - Cal head coach Tom Holmoe announced today the addition of Terrance Dotsy, a 6-4, 280-pound sophomore tight end to the Golden Bear football team.
Dotsy is transferring to Cal after one season at Ventura JC, where he earned honorable mention Western State Conferece honors last season. The massive tight end prospect originally was planning to return to Ventura this fall until the Cal coaching staff reviewed his film and made him a scholarship offer. Dotsy also considered offers from USC and San Diego State, before coming to Cal on a recruiting trip last week and making the decision to join the Golden Bear program.
Dotsy was a standout basketball and baseball player at Santa Clara HS and Holmoe believes his all-around athletic skills could make him an immediate factor for the Cal offense. Dotsy runs a 4.85 time in the 40-yard-dash.
"Terrance has a world of potential, because he moves so well for a player his size," said Holmoe. "His addition really solidifies our tight end position and we feel he'll get playing time right from the start. The added bonus is we'll have him for three years and, with hard work, he could develop into an impact player for us in the future."
While Cal adds Dotsy to its roster, Holmoe also announced that reserve defensive lineman Tim Pompa, reserve linebacker Jamaal Cherry and reserve tailback Chris Hanks, and JC recruit Eddie Martinez, all are off the Cal roster. Pompa was ruled ineligible for the coming season by the NCAA.. Cherry and Hanks have left school due to academic problems, and Martinez did not meet University of California academic requirements for admission.
