Fast-rising Linebacker Palaie Gaoteote Likes UCLA

May 12 -- One of the nation's top linebackers in the 2018 class recently added an offer from UCLA and has the Bruins high on his list early on...

Palaie Gaoteote had a big sophomore season and has burst onto the recruiting scene this spring with a bevy of national scholarship offers.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound outside linebacker from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman is rangy enough to track down ball carriers in the flats, but also physical and tough inside the box, showing good tackling technique to spearhead one of the nation's top defenses. Gaoteote has landed offers from the likes of Mississippi, Notre DameOhio State, UCLA and USC in recent weeks, and is set to draw a visit from the Bruins on Thursday during practice.
