SALT LAKE CITY — Kylie Fitts, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive end who played his freshman season at UCLA, is transferring to Utah. Fitts will enroll in classes this semester and be eligible for games in 2015. He'll have three years to play three seasons with the Utes.

Fitts was a highly touted prospect out of Redlands East Valley High School in California. He originally committed to USC, but wound up switching to UCLA. He played in six games last season, seeing action on special teams and in a reserve role on the defensive line — making one tackle.

When Fitts opted to leave UCLA earlier this month, Bruins coach Jim Mora told the Los Angeles Daily News that: "We wish him the best in wherever he goes and does after this. We're just going to march on."
