Report: UCLA’s Alberto Cid leaving football amid concussion struggles
By Zac Ellis
UCLA offensive guard Alberto Cid will end his career by taking a “medical retirement” due to concussions, Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
Cid missed all of spring camp after starting seven games over the past two seasons for the Bruins. The 6-foot-2, 325-pound lineman transferred to UCLA from Citrus Junior College in 2011.
In the wake of Cid’s departure, UCLA will likely look to incoming freshmen Caleb Benenoch, Kenny Lacy and Christian Morris to build depth on the offensive line.
