BREAKING: Ellis McCarthy commits to UCLA

When defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi left Cal for Washington, a lot of chatter came up as to how many recruits would leave Cal. Ellis McCarthy is the first to make his move.

Scout's five-star defensive tackle Ellis McCarthy has decommitted from Cal and committed to UCLA.

The snowball-effect all began when defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi left Cal for Washington. Tupoi has always been considered one of the top recruiters in the country and his absence has already created a bombshell.

Ellis McCarthy has now committed to UCLA, according to my source close to the situation. McCarthy is ranked No. 2 at his position and rated with five stars.

Beside UCLA, Cal and Washington, McCarthy has had offers from Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma, USC, Oregon and Arizona.
