UCLA Football Recruiting: Colby Cyburt Hops On Jim Mora Bandwagon, Commits To Bruins

It looks like UCLA has rounded out its recruiting on the offensive line, but they finished it with a bang. According to Brandon Huffman, Jim Mora reeled in Colby Cyburt from Mission Viejo (h/t 4ever) to get the tackle that the Bruins really needed to finish up this class. The Bruins already had a solid offensive line class, but it was a little heavy on guards and centers. Now Cyburt gives the Bruins a seventh offensive line recruit and a tackle at that, giving them a very good and well-rounded class up front.

Cyburt checks in at 6-foot-5, 265 lbs. Clearly he needs to put weight on, but his height and frame should allow for that so a redshirt year will do him well and then he should be in a good position to compete for a spot on the two-deep. He has long arms and was praised for his quick feet as well so while he has some work to do, this is a kid with a high ceiling that projects as the ideal offensive tackle. Cyburt was a Stanford target and as far as things in the Pac-12 go right now, if the Cardinal like an offensive lineman, he's probably pretty damn good.

The Bruins beat out finalists Stanford and Colorado for Cyburt, who cancelled his upcoming trips to Palo Alto and Boulder after committing to UCLA. He also has offers from most of the Pac-12, but he was considered a heavy Stanford lean for most of his recruitment. Things turned when Adrian Klemm came in though and after his visit to Westwood, the Bruins emerged as the leader. Klemm is now considered the lead recruiter on six Bruin commits already.

You also can't forget the impact of getting a kid from Mission Viejo. It is one of the top football schools in the country has been USC territory for years now and while the Bruins have snagged a couple guys from there (Jeff Baca and Alex Mascerenas) when Viejo has had talent they've usually become Trojans. Snagging a guy from there and building relationships there is a major plus for the Bruins, in addition to just getting a good recruit.

All in all, a nice class on the offensive line and a great way to keep up the recruiting momentum. Welcome to Westwood, Colby!
