And just like that, the decision is in. 


Former Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight has decided to officially transfer to UCLA. ​This is a solid get for Chip Kelly and his new staff. 

​​As a senior in 2017, Speight was able to accumulate a total of 581 yards and 3 touchdowns in a mere 4 games before suffering a back injury against Purdue.


Speight has previously expressed his interest in transferring to a different school after his senior year, making this situation long overdue. Although, this may come as a surprise to some as Jim Harbaugh recently said in an interview that Speight's return to Ann Arbor was not out of the question. 


Speight will now get to try and replace NFL-bound quarterback Josh Rosen, a task that will be hard to achieve. 

Speight will be missed by Michigan, but the team does have a promising young quarterback to take his place in Brandon Peters. Oh, and let's not forget about Shea Patterson, who figures to be the team's starting QB if the NCAA makes the right call and makes him immediately eligible. 


We'll see how Speight fares at UCLA.
