Santa Margarita (Calif.) offensive tackle Erik Bunte was invited this week to the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.

The UCLA commit is one of the top offensive line prospects in the West in the class of 2013, and a four-star prospect.

Bunte was thrilled with the honor.

"It means everything to me, " said Bunte. "It is a great honor, and other than my state victory last season, this is the pinnacle of my high school career and I would like to thank Semper Fi and all my supporters."

Fellow UCLA commitS Eddie Printz, a quarterback out of Georgia, and Fallbrook (Calif.) offensive lineman Sean Dowling had previously been invited to the game, to be played at the Home Depot Center in January.

UCLA was represented by Justin Combs in the inaugural game last January.

Bunte and his Santa Margarita team are ranked #6 nationally by FOX Sports NEXT, winning their season opener over Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep on Saturday.

Brandon is in his eighth year with FOX Sports NEXT, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the FOX Sports NEXT Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the FOX Sports NEXT network since 2003.
