Fuller talks UCLA commitment

Westwood (N.J.) Old Tappan four-star athlete Devin Fuller has made his college choice. Moments ago he committed to UCLA in a bit of a shocker.

Fuller is a big pickup for Jim Mora and the Bruins staff.

Up until the past week, most projected Fuller to sign with Rutgers. But the departure of Greg Schiano gave the Bruins an opening.

When Jim Mora took over at UCLA, he personally recruited Fuller and made him a top priority from day one.

"I have family out there which made the decision a lot easier," Fuller said. "I really like coach Jim Mora and I think he has a good head on his shoulders. I like the direction of the program and I am excited to be a part of it."

The addition of Fuller gives offensive coordinator a versatile weapon taking snaps.

"Coach (Noel) Mazzone said he can cater the offense towards my abilities versus a Pro-style quarterback," he said. "I plan on showing up and competing to learn this Summer. I'm excited to be a part of the program and help get on the right track."

Was the change at Rutgers what led him to UCLA?

"They were all in it, it was really close all the way until the end. But with my family out there and my comfort level, I just felt UCLA was the right place for me."

The nation's No. 34 ranked prep said he will sign his letter of intent and enroll this Summer. When asked if he could have a late change of heart, he was firm with his response.

"I don't play that, I'm done, I'm a Bruin."
