Moline pulls the trigger

Mission Viejo (Calif.) defensive lineman Chase Moline had his home visit with UCLA earlier tonight and after considering an offer from Boise State decided to commit to the Bruins.
"Coach Dorrell and Coach Kerr just left my house," Moline said. "I committed to UCLA, I'm a Bruin. I'm very excited, UCLA is where I've always wanted to go and I think it's great fit for me.
"I had a baseball game tonight so I was a little late to the visit, the coaches were already in our house and my dad was talking to them. When I got there, they just talked to me about the school and specifically about my offer. As of right now, I'm coming in for the fall. It could end up being a grey shirt depending on who else they sign but either way, I'm going to UCLA.
"I don't mind having to grey shirt, I really don't. If I did that, I would start a year later but I would be able to come in with Chane, we would be the same year so that would be cool. If I come in for the fall, that would be great too, either way I'm just excited about this and glad things worked out for me."
Moline, 6-1, 245 pounds was his league's player of the year this past season, the first time a lineman had been named player of the year in some time. He was also 1st team all-county and 1st team all-state. He's undersized for the defensive tackle position but makes up for it with great strength and quickness off the ball. During the CaliFlorida Bowl practices, the Cali offensive linemen said Moline was the toughest player for them to block all week.
