Cal Adds Graduate Transfer Spencer Lovell

May 12, 2022
Cal has added offensive lineman Spencer Lovell to its roster.

BERKELEY – Travers Family Head Football Coach Justin Wilcox announced Thursday that offensive lineman Spencer Lovell has signed a financial aid agreement to join the Cal football program. Lovell, who will arrive at Cal in June, spent the last four seasons at Arizona State before entering the transfer portal following the Sun Devils' 2022 spring practices. Lovell will be a redshirt senior in his fifth season of collegiate football in 2022 for the Golden Bears but will have two campaigns of collegiate eligibility remaining including one for the COVID-19 blanket eligibility waiver granted by the NCAA to all student-athletes in 2020.

"Spencer is a talented football player with a significant amount of experience at the Pac-12 level, and he will have an opportunity to impact our program immediately," Wilcox said. "We are pleased that Spencer is joining our program and that we are continuing to improve our roster via the transfer portal."

Lovell is the second scholarship student-athlete to be added to the Cal football roster from the transfer portal since the end of the team's 2022 spring practices following the addition of fellow offensive lineman T.J. Session on Tuesday.
