Update on UCLA Commit

The defensive back from Texas committed to UCLA, <b>Robert Kibble</b>, updates us on his season, his plans and a couple of other schools that have continued to recruit him...

Bruin commit Robert Kibble (5-10, 175) leads Houston Westfield into the semi-finals of the Texas state playoffs this Saturday. His team is 12-1 on the year and will battle it out with Converse Judson.

On the season, he has 74 tackles, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Why no interceptions? "They never throw the ball anywhere near me," said Kibble. "I would like to have some picks, but I honestly haven't had many chances to get any this year."

He has not played any offense this fall.

The Houston star insists that UCLA likes him as a free safety even though some have him tabbed as a corner. He said, "They tell me they like me at free safety and haven't ever mentioned any other positions to me."

The safety spot is the only position he has been playing as a senior.

Despite his solid commitment to the Bruins, Kibble has still been hearing from other schools. "Wisconsin and Oklahoma State have never given up on me, but they know where I am going. I am solid with UCLA."

He speaks with running backs coach Eric Bieniemy once a week. "He just tells me that he is very excited to get me up there."

Kibble will get his first taste of Westwood when he makes his official visit on December 17th. "It will be good to get up there and see what they have in store for me and what it is like. I am really looking forward to it," Kibble said.

He carries a 4.2 core GPA and scored a 1060 on his SAT. Kibble would like to major in Sports Medicine. He plans on moving to Los Angeles in June.
