Report: UCLA DE Kylie Fitts to leave school

Tuesday August 5th, 2014

UCLA defensive end Kylie Fitts has decided to transfer to another school, multiple sources reported Monday. A tweet from BruinReportOnline first noted the planned departure, and CBS Sports football writer Jeremy Fowler reported that an unnamed west coast school was waiting to receive Fitts' paperwork. 

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.
