About two and a half months ago, UCLA secured a huge commitment from Jaason Lewis. Since that time, he has a had a chance to reflect on his decision.
"I'm very excited about it," said the 6-foot-3, 234-pound Lewis. "I just felt it was the best fit for me and a great opportunity and a place where I could be successful. I'm looking forward to playing in the Pac-12."
He visited Westwood a few weeks ago.
"It was a lot of fun and a great experience," Lewis said. "I got to see more of the campus and learn more about the school. I also got to talk to all the coaches."
Lewis hopes to contribute early in his college career.
"During my freshman year, I feel like I'll be a great compliment at running back," he said. "Hopefully, as the season goes on, I can get more opportunities."
Despite his commitment, Lewis said Arizona State, Miami and Florida are still recruiting him. However, he stated that he is 100 percent committed to the Bruins.
Lewis Happy to be a Bruin
