UCLA gains a RB, loses a DB

Jim Mora AP

With fall camp on the horizon, UCLA is going through some roster adjustments.

The LA Times reports that veteran defensive back Dietrich Riley will medically retire because of lingering injuries to his back and neck areas. Riley, a four-star member of the Bruins’ 2010 class, did not see game action last season while recovering from major back surgery. However, his departure further thins a secondary unit that has already lost four starters from last year.

However, coach Jim Mora can finally add running back Craig Lee to the roster. The four-star back has been working to get his grades in order over the past several months. Gaining more than 1,700 yards as a senior for Redlands High School in 2012, Lee could contribute to the running game, which has lost Johnathan Franklin.

    That’s too bad for Riley. I shouldve come to ND.
