Cal football transfer McKade Mettauer commits to Oklahoma Sooners

California offensive line transfer McKade Mettauer has committed to Oklahoma, he announced on Monday morning. Mettauer, who entered the transfer portal Dec. 20, spent three seasons with the Golden Bears.

A three-star prospect coming out of The Woodlands, Texas, in the 2019 recruiting class, Mettauer had offers from the likes of Arizona, Illinois, Nebraska and others before choosing to commit to Cal. Mettauer made an immediate impact for Cal, playing in all 13 games and starting 12 of them at right guard. Mettauer won the team’s Clint Evans Award as the most intense freshman competitor, setting him up for a big 2020 season.

Mettauer was on the preseason watch list for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, given to the top offensive player in Division I that also displays characteristics that define Earl Campbell. In a shortened 2020 season, Mettauer was named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 by one outlet.

In Mettauer’s final year at Cal, he was Second Team All-Pac-12 by one outlet and Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 by the league’s coaches.
