"I'm going to be a Bruin," Hester told us.
San Diego State had offered Hestery, but when UCLA offered him a scholarship yesterday, that was pretty much it.
"I slept on it, and then I felt like it was the right school," Hester said. "So, I went up there today to do it face to face. I talked to coach E-Scott (new UCLA receiver coach Eric Scott) and DWalk (UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker)."
Hester, who is very well thought-of among scouts and looked good at last year's Scout.com Combine, wanted to commit early. "I've been looking forward to this all my life," Hester said. "I'm really happy I got it over with."
Hester is a solid student, with a 2.9 GPA, and was a strong enough SAT for UCLA to offer early.
