UCLA football: Bruins to pick up two transfers

August 8, 2011 |  1:36 pm

Ucla-logo_250 Cornerback Jaime Graham and offensive lineman Albert Cid are expected to join the UCLA football team this week, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who was not allowed to speak publicly on the matter.

Both players were to submit their final paperwork to the university on Monday and their approval is a mere formality, the source said.

Cid, a transfer from Citrus College, could join practice as soon as Tuesday. He has three years of eligibility remaining. Graham, who played three seasons at Vanderbilt, is enrolling in graduate school and may not join the team for a few days.

Both players will be immediately eligible and are at positions where depth is a concern. Cid could earn a starting spot at guard. Graham will give the defense an experienced backup at cornerback.
