UCLA's freshman linebacker Zach Whitley is expected to transfer and has already had contact with Texas A&M, according to the Orange County Register. Once committed to Alabama before opting for Los Angeles, Whitley was recruited by the Aggies as a four-star prospect in the 2014 class. Whitley was reportedly dismissed from UCLA for a rules violation after seeing limited action in his first year with the program. Does Texas A&M, in dire need of linebacker help, make sense as a destination close to Whitley's home in Houston?
