The UCLA Bruins landed their third commitment since their camp adjourned last Saturday (June 9th). Once again the Bruins picked up a player at a position of need. He fits their profile as an agile and athletic offensive lineman who has a high ceiling.
The player in question is offensive lineman Connor Bradford (6-5, 270, 5.1) from Palmdale, Calif.
Besides UCLA, Bradford has offers from San Diego State, Utah, and Nevada. New Mexico and Cal were also showing a lot of interest.
Bradford made his decision shortly after attending UCLA's camp this past weekend.
"I talked it over with my family and we decided that UCLA was the best choice," Bradford said. "I like the coaches and the campus, plus it is close to home.
"I received my offer two weeks ago from UCLA," Bradford said. "It surprised me, but it made me feel good and I'm very excited about it."
"UCLA likes my athleticism, footwork and agility."
When Palmdale needs a key block they usually run behind their athletic tackle.
"My recruitment is done," Bradford said. "I probably won't take any other trips.
Bradford earned first-team all-league honors and was selected his team's most improved offensive player for his junior season performance.
In the weight room, Bradford's current bench press 260, he squats 360 and an very impressive 250-pound power clean.
Bradford is already qualified and only has to register with the clearing house.
