Kanan Ray transfers to Colorado

Offensive lineman Kanan Ray has transferred to Colorado after the former UCLA signee grayshirted last year.

The Sierra Canyon High grad did not practice or workout with the team last year while rehabbing a shoulder injury. He was granted a release from his NLI amid the coaching change that brought Chip Kelly to Westwood.

Ray was one of five offensive linemen who signed their NLIs with the 2017 recruiting class. The remaining four, Jax Wacaser, Zach Sweeney, Sean Seawards and Stephan Zabie, all redshirted last year.

UCLA bolsters OL depth with commits Kanan Ray, Will Farrar

On Friday afternoon, UCLA landed the first offensive lineman in its 2017 recruiting class. Less than 20 minutes later, it landed a second.

Four-star tackle Kanan Ray and three-star guard Will Farrar both announced their commitment to the Bruins, giving the program a pair of solid additions to the trenches. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Ray had 17 offers in hand, while Farrar — a Houston-area native — had over 20.

The former is entering his senior season at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon, where he is coming off a selection on the Los Angeles Daily News All-Area first team.
