The National Letter of Intent signings were due today and Keenan Allen(Northern Guilford) signed with the California Golden Bears and coach Jeff Tedford…..
Tedford has a solid rep for developing quarterbacks and Zach Maynard, Keenan’s brother and the former QB at Grimsley HS and the University of Buffalo in New York, will also join Keenan at Cal and here’s the rep on Cal’s coach:
Tedford also has become a noted quarterback coach. After developing Joey Harrington at Oregon he produced two quarterbacks who went high in the NFL draft, Kyle Boller in the 2003 draft, and Aaron Rodgers in the 2005 draft. However, Tedford also was able to cobble together winning seasons in 2005, 2007 and 2008 without an outstanding quarterback.
*****Cal lost in this season’s Poinsetta Bowl:
December 23, 2009 Utah 37 California 27*****
