UCLA starting defensive back Kamari Ramsey is leaving UCLA and hit the transfer portal on Thursday.

Ramsey is the second player on defense to hit the portal for UCLA since D’Anton Lynn left to become USC’s defensive coordinator, joining DB William Nimmo.  While UCLA may have lost Lynn, the Bruins got the better of the Trojans this year beating them 38-20.

Ramsey enters the portal with 3 seasons of eligibility remaining. The former ULCA DB offered his gratitude to the program on Wednesday:

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to UCLA for the opportunity to achieve my academic goals and compete athletically. Thank you to the entire UCLA football program for your time, expertise, and fellowship. I give all honor and glory to God,” said Ramsey. “I plan to enter the transfer portal. I have 3 years of eligibility remaining. I am excited for what the future holds for me as a student-athlete.”

Ramsey played in 15 games for the Bruins over the last 2 seasons. He accounted for 46 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 interception, and 4 passes defended during his time there.

Chip Kelly led UCLA to a 7-5 season as the Bruins finish the year against Boise State in the LA Bowl on Dec. 16.
