UCLA starting OT Jake Burton wants to transfer to SEC or ACC school this fall

CBS Sports: UCLA isn’t playing football this fall as a result of the Pac-12’s decision to postpone its season to the spring. When the Bruins do tee it up, they’ll do so without one of their top offensive players. Offensive tackle Jake Burton, a two-year starter for coach Chip Kelly, announced on Twitter that he will enter the transfer portal in the hopes of catching on somewhere this fall.

“I wish to thank God and my family for all of the love, guidance, and support they have given me during my time at UCLA,” he wrote … “I was looking forward to finishing my college career with my Bruin teammates. Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, that is not possible this year. After much though, I have decided to enter the portal in hopes of gaining the opportunity to play football this fall.”
