UCLA defensive back Priest Willis will transfer, a person familiar with the situation said.

Willis was a reserve for the Bruins the past two seasons. He appeared in 12 games, making one start, last season. He played in nine games as a freshman, mostly on special teams.

Willis can redshirt this season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
