#UCLA DE Kylie Fitts (frmr 4-star) could leave program -- as of Sun., a West Coast school was waiting for his transfer paperwork, per source— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerCBS) August 4, 2014
Fitts, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound sophomore from Redlands, Calif., attracted scholarship offers from more than 20 schools, including USC. He commited to the Trojans in advance of the 2013-14 season, but decommited in January, 2013 when he said something happened that questioned his trust in the school.
UCLA is thought to have picked up a defensive end in the offseason transfer shuffle earlier this month when one-time UCLA commit Josh Shirley reportedly left the University of Washington in hopes of reuniting with UCLA to play his final season in Pasadena.
