BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -Quarterback Kyle Reed will transfer from No. 12 California after losing the competition to be Nate Longshore's backup this season, the school said Wednesday.
Reed, a redshirt sophomore from Oakland, already has contacted San Jose State about joining its program, a school spokesman said. If Reed enrolls in classes at San Jose State by Sept. 12, he could begin his Spartans career next fall with two years of eligibility remaining.
``We wish Kyle all the best,'' coach Jeff Tedford said after Cal's practice for Saturday's game against Tennessee. ``We love Kyle, but Kyle has made a decision to move on to a better situation for himself. He's been great for us. We'll miss him. He's an awesome kid, and we wish him nothing but the best.''
Reed chose Cal after a long recruiting battle, but never got on the field in two years with the Golden Bears.
Last week, Tedford chose freshman Kevin Riley over Reed to be the top backup for Longshore, the junior starter. Reed also faced future competition from Brock Mansion, a touted Texas high school prospect who joined the Bears this fall.
