UCLA linebacker transfers to UH

August 17th, 2013


Former UCLA linebacker Jeremy Castro will be joining the Rainbow Warriors.

Castro, who is 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, has officially been accepted into UH.

Castro must redshirt this season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. After that, he will have four years to play four seasons.

Castro signed with UCLA in February 2012 but was ineligible to enroll that fall because he had not met all of the admission criteria. He then earned a qualifying ACT score, enrolled at UCLA this past January, and participated in the Bruins' spring training. This summer, he decided to transfer.

Castro contacted UH officials. He then sent his application for admission to UH. He was notified of his acceptance yesterday.

Castro was a highly regarded senior at Vista Murrieta high. Scout.com gave him a 4-star rating, according to the UCLA Web site. Rivals.com rated Castro as the nation's No. 17 weak-side defensive end and California's overall No. 40 prospect in 2012.

The Warriors' offense had its best performance of training camp during yesterday's trial run at the Aloha Stadium.

Taylor Graham: 11 of 20 for 213 yards and 4 TDs (50 yards and 20 yards to Chris Gant, 50 yards to Marcus Kemp, 31 yards to Keith Kirkwood).

Sean Schroeder: 9 of 12 for 110 yards and 2 TDs (36 yards to Donnie King, 20 yards to Duke Bukoski).

Schroeder also ran 9 yards for a touchdown, with a leap into the end zone. Yes, Schroeder's surgically repaired back appears to be fine.

John Hardy-Tuliau is at it again. He blocked a field-goal attempt. Some credit goes to Ne'Quan Phillips, who basically threw a block to open the way for Hardy-Tuliau.

By the way, the UH receivers are collectively known as "The Freak Show."

Time to crank out those T-shirts.
