We are very excited to announce that Blair Angulo, formerly of Rivals and ESPN, will be joining Scout and Bruin Report Online.
Angulo was most recently a West Coast recruiting analyst for Rivals.com, and before that provided recruiting coverage for ESPN. He has also worked as a beat writer covering UCLA sports for ESPN L.A. as well as the Daily Bruin.
He'll be joining us as a recruiting writer, football and basketball beat writer, as well as an occasional contributor to the podcast. He'll also help expand Scout's recruiting coverage in the West.
"Let me start off by expressing how thrilled I am to be joining this community and complementing this great staff," Angulo said. "I’ve known Tracy and Dave for about a decade and I’m excited to work alongside them to bring you unmatched coverage.
"This is a return of sorts for me. I covered various UCLA sports -- including football and basketball -- for the Daily Bruin before joining ESPN Los Angeles as a senior. I graduated in 2010 (somehow) and stayed on the beat a couple years before moving onto football recruiting. Most recently I was a West Region analyst at Rivals, focusing on the mountain states, the Pacific Northwest and the islands. I’ll continue covering the mountain region at Scout."
