One of the most crucial recruits in the class of 2008 for UCLA is Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison quarterback Nick Crissman.

Crissman got word about Karl Dorrell's firing from UCLA on Monday morning but said that nothing regarding his verbal to the Bruins has changed.

"Coach Dorrell being fired, it doesn't change my commitment at all," said Crissman.

UCLA's offensive coordinator, Jay Norvell and Dorrell offered Crissman in May and he committed that day, and he said he's been solid to the Bruins since then, having grown up a UCLA fan.

"It's always been a dream of mine to play for UCLA, growing up and watching them. There is nothing to not like about UCLA. I love everything about the school," Crissman said when he committed.

The four-star passer will next play in the ESPN All-American Game in January.
