This week the UCLA Bruin offensive coordinator Jay Norvell went out and visited the high schools' of several of the area's top quarterbacks. After weeks pf exhaustive research the UCLA Bruins have decided on the quarterback they were going to offer. The only question was would he commit to the Bruins and the answer was yes.
The Bruins decided on and picked up the committal of Nick Crissman (6-3, 185, 4.7) from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison.
"UCLA talked to Nick today and they offered," Crissman's Mom said. "Nick committed on the spot.
"Nick is very excited and so are we," Crissman's Mom said. "He's at a track meet and we are here bouncing off the wall with excitement. We haven't even seen him yet, we found out over the phone.
The Bruins land a field general who really came on his first year as a starter leading Edison to the CIF Section championship game against another eventual California State champion Orange (Calif.) Lutheran.
For his junior season, Crissman lit it up hitting on 232 passes out of 368 attempts for 3,094 and 27 touchdowns against 10 interceptions.
Besides the Bruins, Crissman had offers from Colorado and Boise State. Other schools that showed interest were Arizona State, California, Oregon, Oregon State, and USC.
Crissman is a pre-evaluation Rivals250 member.
We will have more on the Crissman committal when we talk to the talented signal caller when he returns from a track meet.
