  Harvard transfer Jacob Sykes found a new home in UCLA through the transfer portal this offseason. Sykes has set high expectations for himself and believes his mindset falls in line with what is being asked of the defense this season. "I attack every day thinking I am the best player in the world," Sykes said. "I just have to prove it every day. I want to establish myself as a dominant player and even if I don't play well one day I'm going to attack the next day with the same mindset." Sykes is a redshirt senior with aspirations of playing in the NFL after his time at UCLA. He had opportunities to play for Northwestern and Rutgers and several Ivy League programs coming out of high school but decided Harvard was best for him. "I settled on Harvard because the name Harvard (on a degree) will open doors," Sykes said. "God forbid I get hurt or anything like that, but I have a great degree to help support my family and those types of things."

He also believes Harvard offered a great balance of athletics and academics for him, with the Ivy League offering a "great caliber of football" that can prepare players for success in the NFL. Sykes decided to explore his options to play for another program in a bigger conference after 2021, because of the extra year of eligibility that was offered to all student-athletes after the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. "It's going good," Sykes said of the level of competition at UCLA. "It's a little bit different here. It's a lot more up-tempo and fast-paced and the guys are a little bit bigger and stronger but it's going well." - Orange County Register
