Jeremy McGee Transfers

Rumors have been swirling around Bruin websites and message boards for the last few weeks that Jeremy McGee might transfer out of UCLA. Yesterday, the transfer was made official when Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron announced that McGee had accepted a scholarship offer.

"We are excited to have Jeremy McGee joining our program," said Orgeron, "He is from Louisiana, a state where we have recruited well. We welcome Jeremy and his family to ours."

McGee, who was a true freshman last year, saw playing time on special teams. He was assigned kick return duties near the end of the season. Jeremy, who originally was recruited to Westwood as a running back, was switched to corner during the fall camp after Michael Norris was injured, and then to wide receiver.

Jeremy recently returned home to New Orleans be with his family after the death of his mother. This will give him an opportunity to be closer to his father while he completes his college career. He will enroll at Ole Miss this July after completing his classes at UCLA.

We wish him all the best!
