SF Chronicle: Tedford Keeping Busy

By John Crumpacker
True to his word, Cal football coach Jeff Tedford wasted no time getting back to work after slogging through his first losing season in Berkeley.  By all accounts, Tedford has secured oral commitments from a group of 18 high school recruits that should put Cal in the top 15 in the country, according to the various web sites that keep track of such things.  National signing day on Feb. 2 should be an uplifting one for Tedford if none of his verbal commits proves fickle and signs elsewhere.  Now that transfer student Zach Maynard has enrolled in school, Cal should have seven quarterbacks in camp when spring practice starts in, yep, the spring.
There's Maynard, Keenan Allen's half-brother, who was at Buffalo under former coach Turner Gill. He might be the best of an undistinguished bunch.  Already in school were Brock Mansion, Beau Sweeney, Austin Hinder, Allan Bridgford and Ryan Wertenberger. One of Tedford's 18 commitments was another quarterback, Kyle Boehm of Mitty High School in San Jose.  Surely, someone from this bunch can actually play the game. Or so one would hope.
