On Saturday evening, after Starks played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, he called UCLA head coach Jim Mora, the two talked, the Bruins handed down an offer and Starks jumped on board.
"I'm a UCLA Bruin," Starks said on Saturday. "I can't wait to play for Coach Mora and (UCLA Running Backs Coach Kennedy) Polamalu. I've always liked UCLA, this is a dream for me."
Starks, the No. 2 ranked player in Colorado, is a four-star safety by Scout but he'll play running back for the Bruins.
He is the third commit to UCLA in the past 24 hours and the third player from the West's team from the Army Bowl.
Starks rounded it out with his commitment to the Bruins.
