Moreau Commits to UCLA

Davie (Fl.) Western running back Fabian Moreau talks about committing to the Bruins, why he chose to do so now, and where he sees himself fitting in to Noel Mazzone's offense...

When Davie (Fl.) Western running back Fabian Moreau woke up this morning, he knew exactly where he wanted to go to school.

"I committed to UCLA earlier this morning," Moreau said. "I knew right when I woke up that that's where I wanted to be. I just felt like it was the right time. I had a good bond with coach Mora and all the other coaches that they're going to have there. It just felt like the right place."

Moreau, who visited this past weekend on his first trip out to UCLA, cited Noel Mazzone's offensive scheme as one of the primary reasons he committed to UCLA.

"I love the offense, and the offensive coordinator they're bringing in," Moreau said. "I like his scheme that they're going to try to run."

The UCLA coaches have already talked to Moreau about what position they'd like him to play, and how they'd like to fit his speed into the offense.

"They definitely mentioned to me the idea of playing slot receiver, which I'm really excited about," Moreau said. "I did a lot of receiving in high school, so I'm really excited about that.

"I just want to come in, play hard, and hopefully get a chance to play early."

Moreau chose UCLA over schools that were closer to home, including Vanderbilt and several east coast schools. He said last week he was still planning on taking another visit after the UCLA visit, but now he's not so sure.

"I'm undecided on whether or not I'm still goin to take more trips," Moreau said. "Possibly still Ole Miss or Vanderbilt. I'm not sure when I'll decide one way or the other."

And while he's still enjoying the euphoria of committing to UCLA and getting geared up for Westwood over the summer, he knows there's still some work he needs to take care of.

"I'm going to start recruiting other guys to come," Moreau said. "I haven't been able to start yet, but I'm going to get on that right now."
