Three-star offensive lineman Kody Innes (6-5, 280, 4.9) from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro had offers on the table from Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada, Northern Arizona, San Diego State, Stanford, Utah and Washington. The talented offensive lineman made his decision known a little while ago.
"I actually committed yesterday to UCLA," Innes said. "I just had to take some time to call some coaches to let them know personally before they read it off Rivals.com or whatever.
"It's exciting, but it was a real hard choice," Innes said. "I really did like the coaches at ASU and all my friend go there, but the thing is my family is moving out to California, it looks like, so I wanted to play where they would be able to watch me and UCLA has a really good pre-med and medical program, which I am interested in.

"I really think that Coach Rick Neuheisel and the rest of the coaching staff are going to turn this team around," Innes said. "I mean they have two great recruiting classes and I really think they are going to get this team back to where they should be. They are going to get there. I really know it."
In the end, it came down to two schools, with one school that was also a consideration.
"It pretty much came down to UCLA and Arizona State," Innes said. "Washington was in there a little bit, but the main decision was between ASU and UCLA.
"I went to the Cal with my whole family and we had a bunch of fun."
