Three-star Punter Austin Kent Commits To UCLA

Dec. 17 -- Just weeks after losing punter commitment Bailey Raborn, UCLA snagged another high-quality punter in three-star Austin Kent...

Three-star Charlotte (N.C.) Providence punter Austin Kent committed to UCLA on Thursday night, just a few weeks after being offered.

It was really important for UCLA to get Kent, considering the Bruins had already lost a commitment from punter Bailey Raborn, and considering how bad UCLA's punter situation was this year. It got so bad this season that UCLA had to use a wide receiver as a punter for a stretch, and he, at one point, managed to kick a 0 yard punt. 

Kent is the third special teams commitment in this class for UCLA, as the Bruins have also taken verbal commitments from a kicker and a long snapper. 

We'll have more from Kent shortly.
