Cal’s football program announced on Wednesday night that an incoming freshman linebacker has suffered a spinal cord injury.

Chris Fatilua, a three-star linebacker from San Diego, suffered the injury in an accident on Monday, according to a statement released by his family that was shared by Cal.

Cal head coach Justin Wilcox said that the Golden Bears’ hearts and minds are with Fatilua.

Fatilua was set to join the program this summer ahead of the fall season. According to his MaxPreps page, Fatilua had 66 tackles, two interceptions and three sacks in eight games last season. He had scholarship offers from multiple Pac-12 schools.

This is no doubt devastating news for Fatilua and his family. The support from Cal will hopefully help him during the tough recovery.
