After the Golden Bears took a day off from the grind of training camp on Tuesday, they were back and Jeff Tedford was happy with their effort. He especially was impressed with his receivers and tight ends.
"Today, practice, usually after a day off, they come back and they're a little rusty," Tedford began, "This is probably the best practice we've ever had after a day off. Really sharp throwing and catching the football today."
In the group of receivers this season will be scatback freshman Isi Sofele. Sofele, who looks even better in person than he did on his highlight video, has practiced in the backfield, at receiver, and as a returner on punts and kicks. Coach Tedford didn't divulge his entire gameplan for the freshman, but he did mention him along with the receivers when discussing some of the group that has really come on during this training camp. Verran Tucker, Jeremy Ross, Nyan Boateng, Marvin Jones, Charles Satchell, and Sofele are receivers that Tedford mentioned as coming on this season, saying, "I feel pretty good about the group of receivers."
