Weird News: Jeremy Castro Transfers to Hawaii

Mora had been vauge re. status of Jeremy Castro during the Fall training camp. - USA TODAY Sports

Well then. Here is some interesting news out of Hawaii:

Former UCLA linebacker Jeremy Castro will be joining the Rainbow Warriors.

Castro, who is 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, has officially been accepted into UH.

Castro must redshirt this season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. After that, he will have four years to play four seasons.

Castro signed with UCLA in February 2012 but was ineligible to enroll that fall because he had not met all of the admission criteria. He then earned a qualifying ACT score, enrolled at UCLA this past January, and participated in the Bruins' spring training. This summer, he decided to transfer.

Hmm. It's kind of weird that the story notes that Castro decided to transfer during summer time. I wonder why we didn't hear about this before the camp started? The answer from Jim Mora even as of yesterday was pretty vague:

So if Castro had decided to transfer earlier than camp what was the reason for keeping it secret? My guess here is that perhaps the coaching staff did that in accordance with Castro's own wishes so that he didn't have to go through another crazy recruiting scenario (no doubt schools all over the country would have been interested in him).

Either way, I am bummed about this. We have enough depth at LB that perhaps this will not be an issue. Oh well. Let's all wish Castro best of luck.

GO BRUINS.
