Cal Lands Montana State Transfer Tackle TJ Session

Former Montana State starting right tackle TJ Session will continue his college football career at Cal.

Session announced his commitment to the Pac-12 program Sunday on social media. He announced his entrance into the transfer portal on April 26, and he went on an official visit to Cal this past week.

The Golden Bears are getting a 6-foot-4, 295-pound native of Menifee, California, a town about 450 miles south of Cal’s campus in Berkeley. As a redshirt freshman at MSU last season, Session started the first 10 games, missed the next four with an injury and returned for the Football Championship Subdivision title game.

Session told last Monday that he entered the portal mainly because of mental health issues, which stemmed in part from a knee surgery he underwent in 2019 and the cold, dark environment that Bozeman sits in for most of the year.

Session received scholarship offers from three Pac-12 schools: Cal, Arizona State and Oregon State. The Big Ten’s Michigan State was one of many other Division I programs to express interest, he said.
