K.J. Carta-Samuels transfers to Colorado State
Keep recruiting, and never … ever … stop.
What are we learning about the graduate transfer world? It’s not over, until the player is signed, sealed, and on campus.
UCLA thought it had a good option coming in to run the Chip Kelly offense, but as it turned out, Washington transfer K.J. Carta-Samuels will likely be the main man at Colorado State.
UCLA already has Devon Modster – last year’s backup to Josh Rosen – battling with Matt Lynch, and soon, star recruit Dorian Thompson-Robinson. The Bruins will be fine, but the 6-2, 225-pound Carta-Samuels – who bolted from Washington with Jake Browning the unquestioned main man – with the all-around skills to add a rushing element to the mix.
But now, he leaves UCLA for a program that really, really, really needs him.
Colorado State projected starter Collin Hill tore up his knee playing basketball, and there wasn’t much outside of a few guys who can throw a forward pass, and a whole lot of prayers, behind him.
Junior J.C. Robles and redshirt freshman Justice McCoy are the spring ball passers, but this is Carta-Samuels’ gig when he arrives on campus. The former four-star recruit for Washington should be exactly what the offense needs.
