There wasn't just a great group of quarterbacks at this past week's EA SPORTRS Elite 11. For pass catchers, we used a lot of receivers from around the South Orange County area since the camp was in San Juan Capistrano. One of those was the top fullback in the state, Mission Viejo's (Calif.) Chane Moline and following today's workout, the athlete casually told us he has already made his college choice.
Moline, 6-1, 240 pounds is a talented runner who rushed for 1,900 yards and 40 touchdowns last season. We've always felt his best attribute was his pass catching skills and he has looked great all week catching ball from the quarterbacks at the camp.
Following today's workout, we asked Moline if he would be taking a little unofficial tour of schools like his tight end teammate Konrad Reuland.
"Nah, I can't afford that," Moline joked. "Besides, I've already told the coaches at UCLA I'm coming. I gave them a commitment."
We were a little surprised by the news because we assumed if Moline had committed, it would have been out there already.
"I still need to take the SAT again and score higher so until I do, I guess you can just call me a soft commitment but I'm definitely going to UCLA and will be out watching fall practice in August. As soon as I get my SAT score, then I'll consider myself totally committed.
"UCLA is a school I've liked for a long time, even before my brothers Chad and Chase decided to go there. It's a good school, close to home and I like how they plan to use me. They see me as a Manual White type back, a big guy who will be used to run, block and catch and I think that's a great fit for me so I'm looking forward to it."
