Defensive end Kylie Fitts was originally slated to make his announcement on Signing Day, but it looks like he wants to get the news out a little earlier. Fitts, who decommitted from the Trojans after they wouldn’t let him enroll early, took an unofficial to USC on Sunday after a trip to Utah. Notre Dame is in the picture as well, but eight Rivals.com and two Scout.com analysts unanimously have him going to UCLA.
Here’s a quick profile of the four-star lineman.
KYLIE FITTS/DEFENSIVE END
High School: Redlands East Valley
Rivals.com ranking: Four stars, 9 (position), 121 (national)
Scout.com ranking: Four stars, 12 (position)
Of note: Had 31 tackles and four sacks in five games before suffering wrist injury. … San Bernardino Sun All-Area defensive first team. … All-CIF-SS Inland Division team in as both senior and junior, when he led Redlands East Valley to undefeated regular season. … U.S. Army All-American.
What they’re saying: “He possesses great size at this stage and looks to have room for further physical development. He also displays very good upper and lower body strength at this stage. You would like to see him strive for a little more consistency, but he flashes good first-step quickness.” — ESPN.com
