Not long after being dismissed from UCLA for violating team rules, Tevin McDonald has found a new home to carry out his playing career.

In a statement released Tuesday, Eastern Washington announced McDonald’s addition. “After consultation with many people and having a long discussion with Tevin, we’ve determined that he deserves the opportunity to continue his collegiate career. We have high expectations of him off the field, in the classroom and on the field,” EWU head coach Beau Baldwin said.

McDonald could begin practicing with the team as soon as this week.

The two-year starter for the Bruins was also previously suspended for last year’s Holiday Bowl, reportedly for failing a drug test. In 2012, McDonald led the team in pass breakups (nine) and passes defended (10), and finished third in tackles (79).  In 27 career games with UCLA, McDonald had 135 tackles.
