UCLA receiver Devin Lucien transfers to Arizona State

Receiver Devin Lucien, who left UCLA right before spring camp, has decided to transfer to Arizona State.

On track to graduate this summer, Lucien will be able to play immediately. Once a four-star recruit in 2011, the former Crespi Carmelite star never became a consistent player in Westwood.

Despite teasing crowds with his athleticism through multiple offseasons, Lucien struggled to break out into a primary roll through three seasons at UCLA. He left Los Angeles totaling 752 receiving yards and four touchdowns, but caught for fewer yards in 2014 (225) than he did the season prior (339).

After UCLA’s Alamo Bowl win over Kansas State in January, he expressed discontent about his role on the team.

The Bruins host the Sun Devils on Oct. 3.

UCLA student volunteers to be hit by linebacker Myles Jack

Danny Siegel is running to join UCLA’s student government. Along the way, Danny Siegel came up with the best/worst idea ever: take a hit from Myles Jack.

Currently campaigning to be a USAC general representative, Siegel — 5-foot-8, 160 pounds — decided the best way to get his name out there was to film himself getting obliterated by someone more than 70 pounds heavier.

Report: UCLA out of running for five-star wing Jaylen Brown

UCLA’s 2015 recruiting class might be already be complete.

The Bruins’ biggest remaining target was five-star wing Jaylen Brown, a player who could have elevated the roster after it lost out on center Stephen Zimmerman. According to Bruin Report Online, however, Brown has cut UCLA from his list of potential schools.

This is one of the few indications of Brown’s future, which the Georgia native has kept close to his vest throughout his recruitment. Ranked the top overall recruit in 2015 by Scout.com, and No. 2 by Rivals, Brown announced eight finalists earlier this month.

ESPN’s Paul Biancardi said last Tuesday that Brown’s destination “could be be Cal or it could be Michigan,” but Brown said a day later that he had not cut his list.

UCLA’s incoming recruiting haul currently consists of four-star guards Aaron Holiday and Prince Ali, three-star forward Alex Olesinski, and JUCO transfer big man Ikenna Okwarabizie.
