UCLA boosts rushing attack with Ball St. transfer Carson Steele

UCLA continued to bolster its offense through the transfer portal with the addition of running back Carson Steele, who ranked No. 9 nationally in rushing yards this past season at Ball State.

Steele, who had 1,556 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns this season, announced his commitment Wednesday morning on social media. He had 2,447 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns, as well as 323 receiving yards, in his first two seasons at Ball State. Steele entered the transfer portal in early December after earning first-team All-MAC honors.

UCLA must replace standout running back Zach Charbonnet, who rushed for 2,496 yards and 27 touchdowns in two seasons with the Bruins after transferring in from Michigan.
