Bruins Pick Up A Defensive Tackle

Looks like we didn't have to wait too long to get some news out the football camp UCLA was hosting in Westwood yesterday. Bruins picked up a huge commitment yesterday. From the Daily News:

A week after losing its lone commitment of the 2010 class, UCLA started over when Bellevue (Wash.) High defensive tackle Julious Moore gave a non-binding oral commitment to football coach Rick Neuheisel on Saturday.

Moore's commitment is big since it begins to fill a position of severe need for the Bruins.

The 6-foot-1, 255-pound Moore committed after partaking in UCLA's one-day camp on campus. He also has scholarship offers from Washington and Washington State.

Welcome to Westwood Julious.

Here is Moore's bio at  Bob Condotta over at the Seattle Times' Husky Football Blog had this interesting take in response to Moore's committment:

Looks like Bellevue High DT Julious Moore is headed to UCLA, with several sources reporting he has committed to the Bruins today, including, which reported he made the commitment today while attending a one-day camp there. If so, that's two key in-state recruits this week who have committed elsewhere. It also marks the first time Rick Neuheisel has come into the Seattle area and taken a recruit away from UW since he was named coach at UCLA. Moore attended at least one UW spring practice, but rumblings of late had been that he was increasingly enamored of UCLA. We have some calls out on the Moore situation and if we get anything additional on it I'll pass it along later.

In addition to Moore's commitment, UCLA coaches were considering extending few other offers after yesterday's camp. I am sure we will be hearing more news in the coming days (or weeks).

As mentioned before, given the kind of head coach we have in charge I am not worried about how this recruiting season will shape up. The way Neuheisel and his staff have closed in their two recruiting seasons at UCLA, speaks for itself.
