Wariboko Opts for UCLA Over Oklahoma

Feb. 4 -- Four-star offensive line prospect Josh Wariboko bucked all of the local hometown pressure to stay in Oklahoma and picks the Bruins...

Josh Wariboko, the offensive line prospect from Oklahoma, announced on ESPN he's committed to UCLA over Oklahoma.

"I'm very happy to announce that I will be attending the University of California, Los Angeles," Wariboko said to ESPN as he drew a hat out from under the table.

The nation's #10-ranked offensive guard, from Oklahoma City (Okla.) Casady School, Wariboko was thought to be leaning toward UCLA for a while, but being the #1 prospect in the state of Oklahoma created a great deal of pressure for him to stay home and be a Sooner.

"Once I visited in the summer, I saw the energy and belief that Jim Mora had going on down there," Wariboko said. "I think there's always an element of momentum in this recruiting thing, so landing some other elite guys made it easy for me and my family."

He is another addition to an excellent 2015 offensive line class put together by UCLA Offensive Line Coach Adrian Klemm. The class very well could be ranked the #1 OL class in the nation.

"I'm just ready to get to work and get on campus," Wariboko said.'
