Breaking News

3:05 p.m. -- There's a chance Darian Owens will not sign with UCLA due to academics. It's not yet certain, though.

2:34 p.m. -- Chigozie Nnoruka, a JC defensive end, has signed an NLI.

2:31 p.m. -- UCLA has received an NLI from Devon Modster.

1:58 p.m. -- UCLA has received Alex Akingbulu's NLI.

1:36 p.m. -- UCLA has announced Dymond Lee's NLI is in.

12:47 p.m. -- There's very likely going to be a mystery signee. Stay tuned.

12:44 p.m. -- And Tagaloa's NLI is in.

12:34 p.m -- Boss Tagaloa has committed to UCLA -- another huge get for the Bruins.

12:31 p.m. -- Mique Juarez has sent in his NLI.

12:30 p.m. -- Devin Asiasi committed to Michigan.

12:17 p.m. -- Mique Juarez has committed to be a Bruin. Huuuuuuuge get.

11:42 a.m. -- We're feeling pretty good about UCLA's chances with Mique Juarez. But I think it's definitely going to go down to wire between UCLA and Alabama.

11:38 a.m. -- Aaron Hansford has committed to Texas A&M.

10:56 a.m. -- And within minutes, Francisco Perez has sent in his NLI.

10:42 a.m. -- Francisco Perez has committed to UCLA, flipping from California. Really big get for the Bruins at guard, a position of need.

10:04 a.m. -- Osa Odighizuwa and Marcus Moore have sent in their NLIs.

9:10 a.m. -- Jake Burton has signed his NLI.

9:09 a.m. -- It's close, between UCLA and Michigan for both. Sources at De La Salle say Devin Asiasi has both a UCLA and a Michigan NLI in his possession. They also have indicated that UCLA is probably still the leader over Michigan for Boss Tagaloa, but it's closer than you might like it to be. There is a feeling that it's very possible the two of them won't split up, and they could actually both together go on a bit of a whim at the last moment.

9:01 a.m. -- Adewale Omotosho has sent in his NLI.

8:50 a.m. -- Brandon Burton and Jalen Starks have both signed their NLIs.

8:26 a.m. -- Brandon Stephens, just hours after committing, has signed his NLI.

8:14 a.m. -- Jordan Wilson has signed his NLI.

8:06 a.m. -- From Brian Dohn: "Folks, Aaron Hansford remains torn. I spoke to his dad and he said Aaron was going back and forth with the decision. Everything I hear has him leaning toward UCLA, but it is fluid. I checked in with one of the coaches at this high school and was told playing receiver in a spread offense is the key, and he likes both offenses a lot. The Aggies' hiring of Noel Mazzone is what has them in it so deep."

8:01 a.m. -- Damian Alloway has also signed his NLI.

7:48 a.m. -- Keyon Riley has signed his NLI.

7:40 a.m. -- Adewale Omotosho has committed to UCLA, big commitment for the Bruins.

7:36 a.m. -- Johnny Den Bleyker has signed his NLI.

7:28 a.m. -- Mike Alves has sent in his NLI.

7:23 a.m. -- Krys Barnes has signed his NLI.

7:05 a.m. -- UCLA even gets walk-on flips -- Ryan Boehm, who committed to Cal Poly SLO, has decommitted and flipped to UCLA. High level walk on linebacker, nice get.

6:53 a.m. -- Not a big shock, but Garrett Rand has decided to sign with Wisconsin.

6:01 a.m. -- Brandon Stephens has committed to UCLA, a source confirmed to Scout.

5:50 a.m. -- It's looking very likely that Brandon Stephens will commit at 6.

5:25 a.m. -- We're hearing UCLA Is looking very good to flip Francisco Perez, the OL prospect from Baldwin Park who is verbally committed to Cal.  He'll announce his decision today at 10:30 a.m. 

5:02 a.m. -- We're hearing that it looks very good for Texas WR Adewale Omotosho, who will announce his decision at 7:30 PST. 

4:26 a.m. -- Austin Kent has signed his NLI.

Feb. 2

9:05 p.m. -- Brandon Burton commits to UCLA.

7:12 p.m. -- Greg Biggins said: "Despite what MJD said earlier, I'm still hearing UCLA looks good for DT Boss Tagaloa. Devin has his reasons for preferring Michigan but he and Boss are very different people and I was told today that Boss has the best comfort level at UCLA.  I'm also hearing that UCLA looks good to land RB Brandon Stephens. I like his film a lot and he would probably be among the top 2-3 backs out West if he played out here. A reminder, Brandon Burton announces on ESPN at 9:00 tonight and I would be shocked if he ends up anywhere other than UCLA. "

6:32 p.m. -- Greg Powers said: "All signs point to Scout 4* wide receiver Adewale Omotosho announcing for UCLA tomorrow morning. When these reports leak out they are at many times correct. Omotosho is trying to keep the intrigue around the ceremony by denying reports and its true he has not yet committed as of right now. But still all the signs point to it happening. My best guess at what happened is that an assistant at the high school sent out a list of kids and where they were signing to the media. Media reported on it because it was new news, understandably. BTW, Omotosho was wowed on his visit..."

5:26 p.m. -- Greg Biggins said: "Hearing it looks very good that UCLA lands Baldwin Park (Calif.) OL Paco Perez tomorrow. This won't get much national buzz but I think it's a pretty key pickup. He's a solid player with size, toughness and attitude and should be able to make an impact in a year or two."

5:20 p.m. -- Texas WR Adewale Omotosho hasn't committed to UCLA, according to sources close to him.  He might have told his high school coach that's where he wants to go.  We've heard UCLA is one of the two finalists, however. 

As of Sunday, it was UCLA for Washington D.C. receiver Aaron Hansford. He has, though, gone underground since, and a source close to the recruitment feels there's some family pressure to go to Texas A&M and that the Aggies might pull it out.
