1. Keenan Allen
As a sophomore in 2011, Allen established himself as one of the premier wide receivers in college football. The North Carolina native was ninth in the country with 1,343 receiving yards. His 98 receptions was also good for ninth nationally.
Allen, the younger half-brother of Cal quarterback Zach Maynard, will continue to be the go-to guy on offense for the Bears, despite the fact that he will miss spring practices recovering from ankle surgery. Expect another extraordinary season from Allen in preparation for his possible departure to the NFL draft after the season concludes.
2. Maurice Harris
Cal lost seniors Marvin Jones and Michael Calvin to graduation, meaning that there is work to be done to find a reliable secondary option at wide receiver opposite Allen.
Although there is a wealth of inexperience at the position right now, Maurice Harris, a redshirt freshman, looks to have the inside track to the second spot on the depth chart.
Harris, a cousin of both Allen and Maynard, was ranked as the 91st best prospect nationally in 2011 according to ESPN. He possesses tremendous hands and could be a nice possession option for Maynard.
Other candidates for this job come fall are fellow freshmen Cedric Dozier and Bryce Treggs.
