The 2018 UCLA Bruins football freshman class got a little bit smaller today as 4-star athlete Bryan Addison has been released from his National Letter of Intent by UCLA, according to a report by Greg Biggins of 247Sports.
Biggins quotes Addison as saying:
I had some issues with the college board and UCLA admissions. I have been fighting this for 5-6 weeks and things were a little slow to get going and time was running out for me. All the other freshmen were already enrolling and it was getting stressful for me.
It felt like the college board was dragging their feet a little on this and I was starting to worry that if I didn’t get cleared soon, it would be too late for me to go anywhere else. I asked for my full release and it was given to me earlier this week on Monday. I’m basically back to square one and looking at all my options again.
According to Biggins, UCLA has given Addison a full release, meaning that he is free to choose any other school of his choice without restrictions. He will be eligible to play this fall as a freshman at whatever school he attends.
Addison had chosen UCLA over Southern Cal, Washington, Arizona State and Nebraska. He has already been in contact with those programs as well as Oregon.
He is expected to make his decision over the course of the next week.
We wish Bryan the best of luck at whichever school he ends up attending.
