Wilton Speight to transfer to UCLA
Friday Apr 13, 2018 12:00am

(ANN ARBOR) – Former Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight announced he is transferring to UCLA on Thursday. Speight announced his intentions to transfer from Michigan in November, but waited until now to make a final decision. Speight started 11 games in the 2016 season for the Wolverines and suffered an injury to his shoulder area that hindered his season. He earned the starting spot again in 2017 until suffering a broken vertebrae in the fourth game of the season against Purdue. He missed the rest of the 2017 season and saw redshirt sophomore Brandon Peters take control of the offense before suffering an injury of his own. UCLA thought it had a different graduate transfer joining the roster when K.J. Carta-Samuels had announced his intentions to transfer to the Bruins from Washington in March. Carta-Samuels later changed his mind and transferred to Colorado State instead. Speight will join a quarterback room that includes redshirt sophomore Devon Modster and incoming freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson. The former Michigan quarterback will also reunite with Jimmie Dougherty, the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach at UCLA, who was an offensive analyst in 2016 at Michigan.
