Tevin McDonald, a two-year starter at safety for UCLA, has transferred to Eastern Washington University and will begin practicing with the football team as soon as Thursday.

McDonald was dismissed by Bruins coach Jim Mora on March 27 for violating team policy. He was suspended for the Holiday Bowl game in December, when the Los Angeles Times reported that McDonald had failed a third drug test.

The 6-foot-1, 190 pound McDonald is a junior in eligibility. He is the son of six-time NFL all-pro safety Tim McDonald and the brother of former USC All-America safety T.J. McDonald.

"After consultation with many people and having a long discussion with Tevin, we've determined that he deserves the opportunity to continue his collegiate career," said Eastern coach Beau Baldwin. "We have high expectations of him off the field, in the classroom and on the field."

Tevin McDonald had 135 tackles and four interceptions in 27 games for UCLA.
