USC TE Caleb Wilson To Transfer To UCLA

Mar. 2 -- USC tight end Caleb Wilson is transferring to UCLA, per sources...

USC tight end Caleb Wilson is transferring to UCLA, sources have confirmed.

Wilson will be coming in on scholarship, and will be immediately eligible for this fall.

Wilson is the son of former USC defensive line coach Chris Wilson, who departed for Missouri in December. Caleb Wilson was a walkon for the Trojans.

UCLA is moving toward more of a pro-style offense this year, and the addition of Wilson gives the Bruins one more talented tight end for the depth chart.

Here's Blair Angulo's evaluation of Wilson from watching him over the last couple of years:

"Wilson was a QB at Gardena (Calif.) Serra his senior season and actually started a few games ahead of Khalil Tate before moving to WR. He saw extensive action at TE during the B2G West Coast Bowl and actually didn't look too bad there. He's a project, but he has good size and earned rave reviews for his work on USC's scout team last year. Moves well down field, athletic and surprisingly good hands. A long way to go as a blocker but with the Bruins needing bodies, it makes sense."

We'll have more from Wilson soon.
