Four-star Buena Park (Calif.) cornerback Elijah Gates is one of seemingly a dozen cornerbacks named Elijah in the 2017 class, but there's nothing generic about the way Gates plays. He's in the conversation for the best corner we've seen this spring, and as of right now, UCLA is in a good position for him.
The Bruins will have to fend off many other schools, though, as Gates already has offers from much of the Pac-12 as well as Notre Dame and Nebraska.
Check out highlights of Gates from his junior season. If the video above won't play, try the version below.
