BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Former South Carolina quarterback Brandon McIlwain is transferring to California.

Golden Bears coach Justin Wilcox said Monday that McIlwain has signed a financial aid agreement and will play football and baseball at Cal.

McIlwain played eight games with three starts as a true freshman last year for the Gamecocks. He completed 62 of 118 passes for 600 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding another 127 yards rushing and two scores on the ground.

McIlwain was Pennsylvania high school player of the year and one of the top quarterback recruits coming out of high school. He must sit out a year at Cal and will have three years of eligibility remaining starting in 2018.
