Derrick Bryant Transferring From UCLA; Eyeing North Carolina, Nebraska, Indiana

Defensive end Derrick Bryant is buried deep on a depth chart full of young and promising UCLA defenders. Bruins Nation had him listed with the third and fourth-stringers this season. The redshirt freshman would probably have had a lot of competition for one of the crucial starting spots, and with so many talented defensive ends like Datone Jones, Damien Holmes, Owamagbe Odighizuwa and Keenan Graham likely to challenge for the two-deep the next two seasons, Bryant's battle would have been well uphill.

So it makes football sense that Bryant is transferring out of Westwood (The official reason is "wanted to see his family and watch his sister grow up", which are quite noble reasons). The new schools he's looking at (the North Carolina Tar Heels Nebraska Cornhuskers and Indiana Hoosiers) will also feature heavy competitions--you'd have to think in terms of proximity to his home state of Ohio, Indiana would probably have the edge.
