Career Stats
Game Logs: 2014

Austin had a promising 2015 spring at wide receiver that he capped with a strong spring game in which he recorded a game-high-tying four receptions for a game-high 76 yards receiving including one scoring grab on an eight-yard touchdown pass from Chase Forrest. He also had a memorable one-handed diving grab in the spring game that prompted @Pac12Networks to ask if it was the “Catch of the Year already??” in a tweet. Austin is also one of the team’s top special teams players and contributed five tackles in that role in his first action at Cal during his 2014 redshirt freshman campaign. In addition, he is the team’s backup holder.
