Gymnast Selena Harris dismissed by UCLA, in transfer portal

Selena Harris, the 2024 Pac-12 Gymnast of the Year, was dismissed from UCLA on Tuesday and is now in the transfer portal, the school confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.

Harris, a 12-time All-American, has two years of eligibility remaining and was among the Bruins' top all-around gymnasts during both of her seasons in Westwood.

UCLA did not specify why Harris was dismissed.

Harris, 20, has also not publicly spoken about her dismissal, but did repost a post on X on Wednesday that said she was in the transfer portal. Harris wrote in her repost, "shhhhh." She has also removed mention of UCLA gymnastics from the bio sections of her profiles on X and Instagram.

The No. 1 recruit in the 2023 freshman class, Harris earned Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors in her debut season. During the 2024 season, Harris earned four perfect scores, won the Pac-12 all-around title at the conference championships in March and finished the regular season tied for the No. 1 ranking in the nation on vault.

Harris was one of two UCLA gymnasts who qualified as an individual for the NCAA championships after the team failed to advance and she finished tied for third place on balance beam.
