Big lineman headed to UCLA

Mario Yakoo attended a game at UCLA last season and then camped with the Bruins last week.
They were one of his favorite teams throughout his recruitment and so when the Spring Valley (Calif.) Steele Canyon offensive guard picked up an offer from UCLA he decided the right thing to do was commit right away.
"They came down during the dead period and got the transcript and then they called me when they had that one phone call," Yakoo said. "I had gone to one of their games and got to see the pre-game and got to talk to the coaches and see their coaches there.
"It kind of really shot up last week at the camp. That's when it really made a big difference. They were pretty pumped up about me and I had a really good performance so that helped out a lot."
Arizona, Air Force and Eastern Washington were the other offers for Yakoo, a 6-foot-4, 325-pound prospect who said UCLA just felt like the right fit for him.
He loves the place, his parents do too and Yakoo felt really comfortable with UCLA's coaching staff especially during camp.
Everything fit between the Bruins and Yakoo and he's excited to have his recruitment wrapped up.
"In football, they have a good program and the education is great," Yakoo said. "It's also a beautiful area and a beautiful campus and my parents were hyped up about it.
"I like the school, they like the school, so it's good. Plus, they made me feel like it was home. At the camp, the coaches were really nice."
Yakoo said he was also receiving interest from USC, Utah, Boise State, Colorado, Colorado State, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, Nevada and Idaho.
