The junior, who entered the transfer portal on December 6, threw for 2,109 yards and 13 touchdowns last season while rushing for 492 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. The 2022 season was a breakout for Schlee who, until this year, had only thrown 36 passes over his first two seasons at Kent State. On the same day that Schlee entered the transfer portal, Kent State offensive coordinator Sean Lewis departed from his post at the school to join new Colorado head coach Deion Sanders as the Buffaloes offensive coordinator. Editor's Picks 1 Related After a successful 9-3 season (the best in the Chip Kelly era), Kelly and the Bruins have been in the market for a new quarterback. With UCLA's longtime starter Dorian Thompson-Robinson departing to the NFL after five seasons in Westwood and a career year in 2022, Schlee will immediately be in position to earn a starting spot as the team's quarterback. Schlee will have big shoes to fill. Thompson-Robinson threw for 2,883 yards and 25 touchdowns as well as 631 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns last season. UCLA also has four-star quarterback Justyn Martin arriving on campus as a freshman, as well as redshirt sophomore Ethan Garbers , who was Thompson-Robinson's backup last season.
