Purdy's brother receives Cal offer, setting up possible Bay Area union

NBC Universal, Inc. Brock Purdy meets with the media to discuss how important Christian McCaffrey is to the 49ers’ offense.

49ers quarterback Brock Purdy might not be the only member of his family playing quarterback in the Bay Area for much longer.

That’s right, Brock’s brother, Chubba, announced his decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal on Thursday and already has received an offer to play quarterback at the University of California Berkeley.

Chubba entered the portal after playing 12 games at Nebraska during the 2022 and 2023 seasons and four games at Florida State during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

Across four years, the younger brother of San Francisco’s superstar has completed 85 of 163 pass attempts for 846 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions through the air, with 73 rushes for 315 yards on the ground.

While Chubba has yet to demonstrate the arm talent of Brock, the college quarterback is a viable threat with his legs.

The Golden Bears’ quarterback room is crowded, as Cal brought two more signal-callers to Berkeley within the week to compete with current starter Fernando Mendoza.

However, Cal head coach Justin Wilcox recently was clear about wanting another quarterback to enhance competition.

Brock stole the Bay Area’s heart after taking over as the 49ers' starting quarterback in the second half of the 2022 NFL season, leading San Francisco to the 2023 NFC Championship and its current league-best 11-3 record this season.

If Brock’s younger brother were to make a positive impact at Cal during the school’s debut season in the ACC, one could imagine the increase in local love for the Purdy family. 

While the idea of a Purdy family reunion in the Bay Area is fun, the 22-year-old transfer has offers to consider from other schools like North Texas and TCU.
