Utah football lands UCLA transfer DE Kylie Fitts, eligible in 2015

It took a little longer than the Utes would've liked, but they've gotten Kylie Fitts.

The Tribune has learned that the one-time four-star recruit has elected to transfer from UCLA to Utah, and will be eligible in 2015. He'll have three years to play three seasons.

Fitts received at Utes offer out of high school, and originally committed to USC before making a late switch to UCLA. The Redlands, Calif., native managed only one tackle in six games as a freshman last season, but 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.
