Players Potentially Transferring Out

It's kind of that time of year, and we're hearing it's quite likely a couple of UCLA football players could be transferring out of the program...

Bruin Report Online is hearing that senior cornerback Courtney Viney is almost for certain transferring out of the program.

Because of the NCAA rule, Viney would be able to transfer as a fifth-year senior and be immediately eligible. The word is that he will very likely end up at New Mexico State, which makes sense since former UCLA defensive coordinator Dewayne Walker is NMSU's head coach, and was the guy who recruited Viney to UCLA.

The loss of Viney will definitely be a blow to UCLA's depth at cornerback and at nickel back.

We're also hearing that tight end/F-back Morrell Presley could very well transfer out.

Presley, in two seasons at UCLA, has caught a total of 11 passes for 63 yards. He came out of high school as the #1-ranked tight end in the nation, but has struggled in college, particularly in being able to catch the ball.

One of the potential destinations we've heard mentioned for Presley was Louisville.

Neither Viney nor Presley have been to any of the team's recent workouts or meetings.
