Tevin McDonald: "Comfortable" w UCLA

Cool story in the Fresno Bee on UCLA's latest commit:

A McDonald a Bruin? It's true. Tevin McDonald, a senior-to-be defensive back at Edison High, broke the family mold in the most rival-like fashion Thursday when he made an oral commitment to play for coach Rick Neuheisel and UCLA.

"I've always kind of been one to do my own thing," said McDonald, whose father and coach, Tim, was an All-America safety at USC in the 1980s, and whose older brother, Tim Jr., will launch his career at the same position for the Trojans this fall. [...]

"It's about Tevin, it's not about what I or T.J. wants," the father said. "There's always been a place in Tevin's heart for UCLA. When I went to USC, he wasn't even born. I love USC, but I love [Tevin] even more."

Tevin McDonald said he hadn't been offered a scholarship yet by USC coach Pete Carroll, but he was scheduled to participate in a Trojans camp next week. That will be canceled.

"I went to the UCLA spring game and a UCLA camp," said Tevin, a 5-foot-11, 180-pounder, who will play cornerback for the Bruins. "I'm really comfortable with UCLA."

Looking forward to watch Tevin cover UCLA's defensive backfield, the same way his Dad did for the Niners.

GO BRUINS.
