One of the West's most heavily recruited prospects in the 2015 class has been Orange (Calif.) Lutheran outside linebacker Keisean Lucier-South.
The five-star had offers from coast to coast, North to South, but it was a local school, UCLA, that always had the lead.
On Saturday afternoon, just before the Bruins hosted USC at the Rose Bowl, Lucier-South committed to the Bruins.
"I've been leaning to UCLA for a long time and have a great relationship with the coaches. I really like Coach Ulbrich and Coach Mora and I like the system and how I'll be used as well. Location didn't play that big of a role but it's great to be close to home for my family and friends to see me," said Lucier-South. "I really like the direction of the program and I'm excited to be a part of it. I have a great comfort level at UCLA and it feels like a second home to me. With basketball starting up for me, I wanted to just focus on that and school and not worry about recruiting. I knew I was going to UCLA so I thought announcing now, before the big game with USC was perfect timing."
