Jeremy Castro, a four star OLB from Murietta, CA was one of the biggest prizes in Coach Jim Mora's recruiting class this past February. Castro flipped from Oregon to UCLA little less than two weeks before signing day giving a huge boost to Mora's recruiting efforts, which was already gaining steam down the stretch.
Unfortunately Castro didn't get the necessary test scores to enroll at UCLA for this Fall quarter. But according to a report form Brandon Huffman at BRO, Castro is all set to enroll at UCLA in January meeting the school's ACT score requirement. This is fantastic news for Coach Mora, Spanos and the Bruin football program.
Castro's commitment is going to help load up UCLA LBers heading into next year. We also have commitments from 3 really good LBers in this class (Myles Jack, Cameron Judge and Deon Hollins). Add them to the OLB crew headlined by Anthony Barr (crossing fingers) and Jordan Zumwalt, Spanos must be salivating thinking about next year (yes, we know focus is on the Trees this week)
Can't wait to see Castro in a Bruin uniform next Fall when he is going to play as a true freshman.
