UCLA Football: 2012 Signee Eli Ankou Reportedly to Join Team

Per Justin Hopkins of 247sports.com, Eli Ankou will forego his greyshirt and join the team:

With the reports of Kevin McReynolds switching to OG, as well as Iuta Tepa's transfer, this move makes a lot of sense. Ankou was originally signed as a DE, but there were reports that he put on a lot of weight during his senior year of high school and may end up at NT. Either way, I think this is a good move for depth purposes, and was really only possible to UCLA's late academic start due to quarter system.

This move also opens up another scholarship for the 2013 class. UCLA currently has 11 verbal commitments, but only one to a defensive linemen. I suspect that Coach Mora and his staff will push to sign another defensive lineman.

Welcome to Westwood (Again), Eli!
