It is a very big weekend for UCLA recruiting and Rick Neuheisel and company have not disappointed. There is a very good chance that the Bruins have picked up three, maybe four commitments.
The newest Bruin for the class of 2009 is in reality the oldest Bruin as he was the first to commit to UCLA when he did so two years ago. That player is four-star cornerback Marlon Pollard (6-1, 160, 4.5) from San Bernardino (Calif.) Cajon.
"First we give honor to God for the blessing for us to have the opportunity to make a tough choice between three great programs in Stanford, Notre Dame and UCLA," Rachael Pollard, Marlon Pollard's mom said. "Marlon has decided to attend UCLA.
"Marlon played pool and bonded with his future defensive back mates, Alterraun Verner and Rahim Moore," Rachael Pollard said. "Everyone here has been great."
"I love coach Rick Neuheisel," Rachael Pollard said. "He's got to be one of my favorite people. The Bruins will win a national championship."
Marlon Pollard was very enthusiastic about his return to UCLA.
"I've just always been a Bruin," Pollard said. "That's where my heart's been and I couldn't wait to get the word out of my committal out."
The Bruins land a player who made the Rivals.com Rivals250 team for the class of 2009. He is rated by Rivals.com as the fifth best athlete out of the nation's corners in the class of 2009.
Pollard was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 landing as the Golden State's No. 16 prospect at any position.
