the L.A. Daily News reported he likely would've factored into the depth chart
and possibly seen rotation snaps this year.
Instead, Fitts announced he would transfer early in August as the Bruins began training camp.
Fresno State and San Diego State were reported as other potential landing spots.
The Utes will be looking for a replacement for Nate Orchard and Greg Reese at defensive end next year. If Fitts works out, Utah may have a talented pool to work from with Hunter Dimick, Jason Fanaika and Wallace Gonzalez among the planned returners.
Fitts' high school ranking would put him immediately among the top additions to the 2015 class.
