Alize Jones considered taking other official visits but those plans have changed. The Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman four-star tight end who committed to UCLA in November is finished with recruiting and it's only good news for Bruins' fans.
Jones, who spent the evening at the UCLA Elite Camp on Wednesday, said he's not looking at other schools, not going to take visits and doesn't even open recruiting mail any longer.
"It's solid," Jones said. "I'm 110 percent committed to the UCLA Bruins. I'm not going to take any official visits. I'm not talking to any other schools. I haven't even opened a letter from another school since November.

"I talked to my parents and I said, 'No, I'm not (taking visits).'"
The 6-foot-4, 218-pound prospect is rated as the No. 1 tight end in the 2015 class by Rivals.com and No. 56 overall. He shined last summer at the UCLA camp and said his relationship with the coaching staff has only gotten stronger.
Jones likes everything about the Bruins and doesn't want to play the recruiting game any longer.
"I like the whole vibe," Jones said of UCLA. "I like how the coaches are. The coaches are really cool and they're great. I've been talking to the players all day and they're welcoming. I love the environment here. It's a great fit.
"(The coaches) have been telling me I'll be flexed a lot and I should come in and be a playmaker. That's my plan to come in and be great and hopefully I can play right away. That's my plan."
The Bishop Gorman standout said he's turned his focus to recruiting four-star wide receiver Cordell Broadus, now a teammate, to the Bruins along with four-star running back T.J. Simmons and five-star cornerback Iman Marshall.
Solely focused on UCLA, Jones said it's relieving to have his recruitment done.
"It's great," Jones said. "To have all that pressure off my shoulders is great. Just to go into the football season knowing I'm done with recruiting and I'm committed is great. I'm glad I'm done."
