Compton (Calif.) Dominguez offensive lineman Lacy Westbrook has been playing for the past five games after suffering an ankle injury.
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound four-star has over a dozen offers but tonight he decided he was prepared to make his commitment.
"I committed to UCLA," Westbrook said. "They continued to show a lot of interest in me even with my injury. They have great academics and a degree that would set me up for life."
The coaches were a bit overwhelmed when they got the call from Westbrook.
"Yeah he was excited I could tell, but he seemed more shocked than anything," he said. "I'm excited about the future of UCLA football, I'm not worried about the past. I'll probably be taking my visit towards the end of December."
Westbrook was originally planning to visit Washington this weekend with teammates Brandon Beaver, Alphonso Marsh and Damion Turpin. Beaver and Marsh are still going, however Westbrook and Turpin won't be on the trip.
"The coaches at Washington said they wanted to bring in skill position players for this game. I think I'll make the trip later this year still. I'm also thinking I will visit Cal, Oregon and USC, possibly others."
Westbrook will not graduate early from Dominguez he said. He is the second commit in two days for the Bruins.
