In his post, Jaggers revealed he was in a car accident that resulted in his third diagnosed concussion.
From the Los Angeles Daily News:
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound tight end wrote that he will remain on scholarship at UCLA and continue his studies. He is the second player to medically retire this spring from the Bruins, joining rising redshirt freshman offensive lineman Jax Wacaser, who is also remaining at UCLA as a student, according to his father, Michael in April.
Jaggers did not play as a freshman in 2017 after taking part of spring practice. He was a four-star recruit out of Roseville.
The Bruins are still loaded at tight end with Caleb Wilson, Jordan Wilson and Michigan transfer Devin Asiasi set to suit up this fall.
