Bradrick Shaw To Join Cal In 2020
BERKELEY – Head coach Justin Wilcox announced Tuesday that running back Bradrick Shaw has signed a financial aid agreement and will join the Cal football program for the 2020 season. Shaw, who recently announced his intentions to attend Cal on social media, is a graduate transfer from Wisconsin who began his collegiate career with the Badgers in 2015. He was recently granted a sixth year of collegiate eligibility and has one season remaining.
Shaw earned a bachelor's degree from Wisconsin in life sciences communications in 2019 followed by a master's in educational leadership and policy analysis in 2020. He has enrolled at Cal in the professional master's of public health program.
"We are looking to bring in student-athletes who can help us win football games and championships while also being good fits academically and socially at Cal," Wilcox said. "Bradrick has been part of two very successful football programs at the collegiate and high school levels, and we are confident those experiences along with his strong work ethic and character that I personally witnessed at Wisconsin will make him a tremendous asset to our program."
