Coach Rick Neuheisel has picked up his 4th commitment of this very young recruiting season and this is a big one. From ESPN:
Wide receiver / tight end prospect Junior Pomee (Moreno Valley, Calif./Rancho Verde) has committed to UCLA over Arizona, ESPN's Greg Biggins reports.
"I had a long talk with my dad last night and UCLA just came out on top. They were the first school to offer me and that meant a lot to me. The distance from home was a plus and I like the new offense they're putting in. I think that 'Pistol' offense will open things up and mean a lot more ball for the tight ends and receivers and that's what I'll be doing," he explained.
Other programs including Washington, Oregon State, Nevada, UTEP and Idaho were also after the 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect.
Welcome to Westwood Junior. More after the jump.
Scout.com has the following capsule on the first four star commit of this very young recruiting season:
A hybrid tight end, wide receiver, Pomee has the frame to play at 240+ pounds on the college level. He has wide receiver skills in the passing game understanding how to use his body to box out smaller defenders and he adjusts well to the ball. Needs to stay focused and play hard on every down to reach his potential. Should he add the needed weight, he could be a fast tight end, or end up a big possession receiver - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
Brandon Huffman in an earlier article for Scout.com compared his "style" to Morrell Presley. So he sounds like a very exciting get for the Bruins.
The fun is just getting started this summer. If last few years are any indication remember Neuheisel usually builds up his class little by little over the summer, and turns on the jets late in Fall and early Winter. Seems like we are on the same trajectory again this season as well. Good times.
