Scout Now: Jake Burton Commits to UCLA

Jan. 19 -- Greg Biggins breaks down the recruitment and talks about the kind of player UCLA is getting in Jake Burton...

UCLA has a big need for size up front and got some much needed help along the defensive line Monday when former Arizona commit Jake Burton switched his commitment to the Bruins. 

Burton committed to Arizona back in July but UCLA never backed off him. DL Coach Angus McClure recruited the lineman heavily all season and it paid off on Monday.

Burton, who's 6-6, 265 pounds, is a rugged defensive lineman who has the ability to move around and play in multiple positions but will start out as a rush end. He's an extremly physical player with a non-stop motor and brings a ton of toughness to the table.

For more on Burton's commitment to UCLA and what it means, check out the latest in the Scout Now video above.
