Why the decision to transfer?
"I had dreams and aspirations of one day playing in the NFL. It's just a numbers game. There's nothing wrong with UCLA, I don't have any beef with the program. It's not like I'm mad at anyone. It's a business decision, man. Some of my family isn't happy with it. Some of them don't want me to leave, but right now I have to do what's best for me."
Do you feel you got a fair shot at UCLA?
"Some people I didn't get a fair shot, some people say I did. I can't really sit here up and say that I didn't get a fair shot. Things didn't work out the way I wanted them to. It's nothing against the coaches. Right now, they have to go where it feels right. Unfortunately, I got the short end of the stick."
