4 Star OL Caleb Benenoch Commits to U.C.L.A.

Another elite recruit lines up to play for the Bruins - US PRESSWIRE

The Bruins reel in another huge, literally, commitment for the offensive line and build on their top 10 class for 2013

#OLineU. It only seems like deja vu.

Two days after the Bruins got a big OL commit, Coach Mora and Coach Klemm reeled in another. Caleb Benenoch, the massive offensive lineman from Seven Lakes High School in Katy (Houston) Texas verbally committed to the Bruins this morning. Benenoch, 6-6 and 317 is rated a 4 star prospect by Scout and the #9 OG prospect in the country.

In what Bruin fans hope is a harbinger of the Holiday Bowl in 2 and a half weeks, Benenoch had narrowed his choices to U.C.L.A. and Baylor before declaring the Bruins the winner. Benenoch also had offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan State, and Texas A&M, among others. His decision to come to Westwood shows what a draw the Bruins are becoming on a national scale.

Following on the very large footsteps of Alex Redmond's commitment on Saturday evening, the Bruins have pulled in two of the most highly sought after OLine recruits in the country in a 36 hour period, and have added to an already deep OL class. Benenoch becomes the eighth offensive lineman to commit to the 2013 class, though it is possible some of the earlier commits may continue to look elsewhere. AHMB already needs to update his excellent offensive recruiting reset from yesterday. Meanwhile, pulling in this gem from Texas shows once again that Coach Adrian Klemm is proving to be the best recruiter in the Pac-12 and one of the tops in the country.

All this comes on the heels of freshman center Jake Brendel being named a 1st Team Freshman All American and Xavier Su'a-Filo being named a 3rd Team All American by CBS. Remember when the OL was probably our weakest unit on the team a few years back? Yeah, neither do I.

Line Wins Games. And as Coach Klemm tweets, #8Clap!

Welcome to Westwood, Caleb!
