The freshman class of 2022 continues to make its mark, with real freshmen across the country putting on signature performances. As 247Sports’ Chris Hammer decided, the best of those performances in Week 4 belonged to the California club. Jayden Ott.

A four-star running back ranked 22nd in California and the top player in Cal’s freshman class, Ott rushed for 274 yards and threw three touchdowns—two of 70 or more yards—in Cal’s victory over Arizona. This is great for any player, especially for a real beginner. And Hammer decided to add perspective to Ott’s monster display.

“However, history is probably the only way to truly put Ott’s day in context,” Hammer wrote. “He is one of 13 Pac-12 players since 2000 who have rushed for at least 270 yards and thrown three touchdowns. according to the College Football Handbook. He is also the only newcomer among this group of 13 players. In addition, Ott’s 274-yard out was the third-highest total in Cal’s history.”
