Attention Frosh/Sophs: Your New Neighbor Might Be an NFL Player

New, 21 comments

This week we've discussed the decision of Akeem Ayers to take his talents to the NFL after his Junior season. However, UCLA will be getting an NFL player in return: Tennessee Titans rookie cornerback Alterraun Verner.

Verner flew home from Tennessee on Wednesday, moved into his on-campus dorm room last night and attended classes today. He is enrolled in three courses this quarter.

"I made a commitment to myself last year that I would return to UCLA to work on completing the requirements for my degree," said Verner.

"It's great being back at UCLA. I'm going to enjoy living up at the dorms and seeing all the familiar faces on campus. It feels like home to me."

It's great to see him returning to finish what he started, following in the footsteps of BN favorites Arron Afflalo, Russell WestbrookDarren Collison, and Kevin Love.
