Scout Breaks Down UCLA 4-Star Receiver Commit Adewale Omotosho

Feb. 5 -- Scout breaks down new UCLA four-star commit Adewale Omotosho, the No. 9 receiver in the Lone Star State's senior class...

Adewale Omotosho is headed to the West Coast after announcing on National Signing Day that he will sign with UCLA.

Omotosho chose the Bruins over fellow finalists Oklahoma State, TCU, and SMU after taking an official visit to UCLA this past weekend.

Scout ranks Omotosho as the No. 9 receiver in the state of Texas and the No. 55 receiver nationally for the 2016 recruiting cycle.

Below is analysis of what Omotosho will bring to UCLA:

Omotosho is a big-framed wide receiver who can stretch the field vertically with his ability to out-muscle, out-leap or out-run defensive backs he battles. He has continued to look better and better with each and every snap he takes in high school and will become even more dominant as he matures and adds size and strength. True outside receiver. - Greg Powers, Scout national analyst

As noted above, Omotosho is a prototype outside receiver prospect as he projects to college. He possesses a great frame at 6-foot-2, 189 pounds and looks even bigger than that when you see him in person.

Omotosho has a huge catch radius that makes him a big target on the perimeter. He's a red-zone ball-winner thanks to his height, length, and leaping ability. Additionaly, Omotosho has true field-stretching ability in the deep portion thanks to his laser-verified 4.5 speed. He also has been verified at 4.28 in the shuttle, a strong lateral quickness measurement for a tall, lanky prospect.

That athleticism makes Omotosho more dangerous as a run-after-catch threat than your typical big outside receiver. He has big-play capability over the top with his long speed, as well as in the short and intermediate with his close-quarters athleticism.

To prepare for the Power Five conference level, Omotosho will need to add bulk and strength. He can also improve his consistency from the standpoint of making all the everyday catches. Like a lot of young receivers, he can provide a spectacular play, then drop a gimme.

That says, Omotosho has a high ceiling and comes from a huge high school -- one of the largest in the entire state of Texas -- where he's been well-coached, while also playing against great high school competition.

Below are Omotosho's stats from his three-year varsity career:

CAREER: Omotosho finished his career at one of Texas' largest high schools (Plano East) with 64 receptions for 1,203 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging 18.1 yards per catch.

2015: Omotosho's senior season saw him catch 33 passes for 621 yards and six touchdowns on 18.8 yards per reception.

2014: As a junior, Omotosho caught 31 passes for 582 yards and four touchdowns on 18.8 yards per catch.

2013: Omotosho made his varsity debut as a sophomore, finishing with five catches for 46 yards.
