BERKELEY - Cal will hold its annual pro timing day for former Golden Bears that are professional football prospects on Thursday, March 14. A portion of the event will be open to the public at Memorial Stadium. Beginning at 10 a.m. PT, fans can enter Memorial Stadium on the north end through Gate 1 (location/parking/transportation options below), where they will be directed onto the concourse level and into available seating in the lower area of sections EE, F, FF and G. Fans are not allowed onto the field.
The prospects will be timed in the 40-yard dash, 20 and 60-yard shuttles, and the 3 cone drill before going through positional work at Memorial Stadium.
