Former South Carolina quarterback Brandon McIlwain will transfer to Cal, he announced Saturday.

McIlwain started three games for South Carolina as a freshman quarterback, completing 52.5 percent of his passes for 600 yards and running for another 127 yards.

He came to Columbia from Newtown, Pa., as a four-star football prospect and a decorated baseball player, projected as a high draft pick. He was given the chance to play both sports, and saw a few at-bats last spring and none in 2017.

He is expected to play football and baseball for the Golden Bears.
