Former UCLA players plan to play the 2020 season on new teams

Some have had good fortune, and others have not

The UCLA Bruins may not be playing football this fall — but some former Bruins will certainly be making their presence felt for their new teams in 2020.

Former UCLA WR Theo Howard will suit up for the Oklahoma Sooners this season, just months after reportedly rupturing his Achilles in January. It was said he was seen on the practice fields in Norman, and would be a huge additional weapon for new starting quarterback Spencer Rattler.

Howard hauled in 119 career receptions at UCLA, totaling 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns. He also chipped in with another 25 rushing yards and made one start last season before redshirting and transferring to Oklahoma.

While Howard is back, and apparently healthy, the opposite end of the spectrum has happened to former UCLA tight end Jordan Wilson. Though he transferred to Florida State, it’s been reported that Wilson suffered a leg injury and will miss the entire 2020 season with the Seminoles.

Wilson hauled in 25 career receptions in three years with UCLA, with two scores and 244 receiving yards. He likely would have had a big impact on FSU’s tight end room who lost Tre McKitty to transfer.

A shame for Wilson to miss the season but he may be able to garner a medical redshirt and play again in 2021.
