UCLA football: Receiver Devin Lucien looks to transfer

Senior wide receiver Devin Lucien has left the UCLA football team

Receiver Devin Lucien has left the UCLA football team and will attempt to transfer as a graduate student, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Lucien has one year of eligibility remaining and could play immediately if he enrolls in a graduate program. He has yet to graduate from UCLA, but hopes to have his degree before summer.

Lucien played the last three seasons at UCLA after sitting out as a redshirt in 2011. He was third on the team with 29 receptions for 225 yards and two touchdowns last season. He had 58 career receptions for 852 yards and four touchdowns.

UCLA remains deep at receiver. Besides Lucien, the Bruins have their top seven players in receptions returning, plus a handful of top newcomers.
