UCLA Football: OLB Jason Harris to Join Bruins as a Grad Transfer

Harris played three seasons for the Illinois State Redbirds.

Outside linebacker Jason Harris will join UCLA football this season as a graduate transfer.

Last season, the UCLA linebacker corps was one of the least deep positions on the team due, at least in part, to a series of injuries. On Thursday, the Bruins got a little bit deeper when outside linebacker Jason Harris announced that he will head to Westwood this fall as a graduate transfer. He comes to UCLA after playing three seasons for the Illinois State Redbirds.

The 6’, 5” tall, 245-lb. Harris started all 11 games for the Redbirds last season. He had 26 tackles, one sack and two tackles-for-loss as well as a pass breakup and two quarterback hurries. Over his three years at Illinois State, he played in 32 games and had 105 tackles, 512 sacks, 1312 tackles-for-loss.

Harris is the son of former NFL defensive end and coach Al Harris, who played 12 seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears. His dad was an All-American at Arizona State.

Let’s look at Jason’s Illinois State highlight reel:

According to Bruin Report Online, Jason chose UCLA over Boston College and Liberty.

Welcome to Westwood, Jason!

Go Bruins!!!
