It's an auspicious start to the evening.
Keisean Lucier South is a 5 star outside linebacker from Orange Lutheran High School in Orange, CA. Rivals lists his as the #3 ranked OLB in the nation and the #6 overall recruit in California. (The #1 is our incoming QB). You can see his Rivals! profile here and his Scout profile here.
KLS had offers from 30 schools including Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and 10 of the Pac-12 schools including Oregon, Washington, ASU, and, yes, Southern Cal. Nice. Jeff Ulbrich and Taylor Mazzone are listed as his primary recruiters.
You can see his junior year highlights in the video below.

That amazing combo of speed and power off the edge might remind Bruin fans of another recent OLB who set the Barr very high for our linebacking crew. Lucier-South could end up playing DE if he continues growing, at which point we'll start making comparisons to Owamagbe Odighizuwa. Either way, Coach Mora and the Bruins jsut added a huge commitment to the 2015 class.
Tonight is about beating $c. Looks like Keisean has gotten us off to a good start.
Welcome to Westwood, Keisean!
