Could UCLA Football Finally Land 4-Star WR Ryan Newsome?

He originally committed to UCLA in January 2015, but family pressure to stay home may have gotten him to commit to Texas.

@NewBoi17

In January 2015, Ryan Newsome, a four-star receiver prospect, committed to UCLA, but, come National Signing Day, he flipped to Texas, apparently amidst family pressure to stay close to home.

Fast-forward eighteen months.

Last night, Ryan Newsome announced that he plans to transfer from Texas on Twitter.

There is no indication yet on what school he plans to transfer to, but you have to think that maybe this young man will now go where he really seemed to want to go in the first place: UCLA.

And, while he’d have to sit out a year, he’d be eligible to compete just in time for Josh Rosen’s junior year.

Also, don’t forget the fact that he is a dynamic return man and the Bruins will be looking for someone who can replace Ishmael Adams on the return team.

While it's never easy figuring out where a recruit or a transfer may go, when you factor in what happening during Newsome's recruitment, UCLA factors to be in the mix.

In fact, we speculated as such in a tweet when the news broke last night.

This morning, we discovered that Newsome had retweeted our tweet. Take that for what it's worth.

Go Bruins!!!
