UCLA Football Lands QB Transfer Wilton Speight


The UCLA football program has added some depth under center. On Thursday night, graduate transfer Wilton Speight announced that he has completed his transfer from the Michigan Wolverines to the Bruins. As a graduate transfer, Speight will be eligible to play immediately in 2018.

Speight will challenge for the starting job at UCLA and very well could be the favorite to replace NFL-bound Josh Rosen.

During the 2016 season, Speight served as the starting quarterback in Ann Arbor. The signal-caller returned to his starting role at the beginning of the 2017 season, before suffering a broken vertebrae that prematurely ended his season.

Speight announced his transfer on social media with a simple message which read “new chapter.”

During his time under head coach Jim Harbaugh, Speight threw for 3,192 yards, 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He will now look to end his career on a high note in Los Angeles where he will play under new head coach Chip Kelly.

The Bruins will kickoff their 2018 campaign on Sept. 1 against the Cincinnati Bearcats at home. Michigan, meanwhile, starts the season with a marquee matchup against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
