Report: Lucky Radley is transferring from Utah, will walk on at San Diego State
Tom Smart, Deseret News
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Thursday that Utah running back Lucky Radley is transferring to San Diego State, where he will join the Aztecs as a graduate student walk-on this summer.
There is no official word from either Utah or San Diego State about the potential transfer.
Radley rushed for 284 yards and two touchdowns on 59 carries for the Utes last season, the fourth-best rushing total on the team. He also had 11 receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown.
The 5-foot-9, 184-pound Radley already has his bachelor's degree in sociology at Utah, according to the Tribune, and will be a senior in the 2014 season.
Radley has mainly served as a dependable reserve throughout his Utah career; last season, he shared time with Bubba Poole and Kelvin York. His best game as a Ute came in 2013 against Weber State, when he rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns. In Pac-12 play, his top game came against Arizona last October, when he rushed for 56 yards on five carries.
According to the Tribune, sophomore D.J. Pumphrey is the leading candidate to start at running back for San Diego State, while Radley would battle with junior Chase Price and redshirt freshman Marcus Stamps for playing time.
The Aztecs are looking to replace Adam Muema, who led the Mountain West Conference team with 1,244 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013 and declared for the 2014 NFL draft. Pumphrey backed him up, rushing for 752 yards and eight touchdowns.
