Bruins Offer 2019 4-star DE Kayvon Thibodeaux

Sept. 2 -- Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey 2019 four-star defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux was offered by UCLA on Wednesday, the seventh offer for the elite national prospect...

UCLA has long had a history of stellar players from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey.


And the Dons have had a long history of talented recruits that they've sent to college.

The next big thing from Dorsey is 2019 defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux, one of the elite prospects nationally in the 2019 class.

And the Bruins became the latest school to offer Thibodeaux when they offered him on Wednesday night.

"It felt great to get the UCLA offer and it means a lot to know that my hometown school feels that I have enough talent to play at their school," said Thibodeaux.  

UCLA joins offers from MiamiTennesseeUSCUtahWashington State and Montana State.

"Coach Yarbs (Eric Yarber) is recruiting me and who I talk to," said Thibodeaux.

Thibodeaux hasn't had a chance to visit UCLA unofficially yet, but being just a sophomore, he plans to this fall.

"And of course I'll be going to games this season," said Thibodeaux.

While Thibodeaux has a high ceiling as a defensive end, he also plays tight end for the Dons and at this point in his recruitment, he's being recruited for both sides of the ball.

"UCLA actually offered me as a jumbo athlete," said Thibodeaux.

Since it's still 2.5 years until he'll sign somewhere, Thibodeaux said from his offers, no leader has emerged.

"I feel the same way about all of them," said Thibodeaux.

Dorsey opened their season last week against Tafuna HS of American Samoa and will take this weekend off before facing Gardena (Calif.) Serra next weekend.
