Simon Goines Says It's UCLA

The 6-8 offensive tackle from Texas, Simon Goines, told us that that he intends to sign with UCLA on Wednesday...

Simon Goines, the 6-8, 295-pound offensive line prospect from Keller (Tex.) Central, told us he's verbally committed to UCLA.

"I am going to UCLA,"said Goines in a text message moments ago.

When asked about what was behind his decision to flip schools at the last moment, he replied in a test message: "I felt better about what was going on in Westwood, and more comfortable with the coaching staff and players."

Goines, who was previously committed to Missouri, took an official visit to UCLA a couple of weeks ago and he's been leaning to the Bruins since.

He chose the Bruins over Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia and others.

He's the #37-ranked offensive tackle in the nation.
