UCLA Football Recruiting Open Thread: 4 Star WR Jordan Payton Flips to Bruins From Huskies

Looks like Coach Jim Mora may be in position to pull in the first big shocker (in a good way for the Bruins) by landing 4 star WR receiver from Oaks Christian - Jordan Payton. Sean Ceglinsky from ESPN first tweeted:

Word is Jordan Payton from Westlake Village (Ca.) Oaks Chrisitian will sign with #UCLA. That's right, #Washington no longer an option.

And Brandon Huffman just confirmed the news a little while ago. If this holds up, this will be a huge coup for the Bruins on signing day with few more targets on board.

Here is Jordan Payton's profile on The kid had offers from number of schools including Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Florida, Arkansas, and Michigan. Of course he was also part of the Cal recruiting class that imploded down the stretch. Here are his video highlights:

Obviously it's not over until the letter is in. But signs look great for Bruins. At least at this snapshot of time 8CLAP > Wooof. Recruiting junkies will know what that means.
