The Bruins just got their 3rd commit for the 2017 classATH/DB Rhedi Short from Cathedral High School in Los Angeles just got an offer from U.C.L.A., and it didn't take him long to jump at it.

Short, well, is not. He's 6-1 as a junior which is already good size for a defensive back, and you can see on the video below he is a big hitter at strong safety. The video says that he has 22 tackles, 3 picks, and 11 passes broken up already this season.

Here are his early junior season highlights from hudl.

The kid really brings the hammer in the secondary.

It's a long way until 2017, but the Bruins can always use a good crop of defensive backs to help defend against the high powered spread offenses in the Pac-12. And though I would normally caution a young man about committing at the first opportunity at the first opportunity that comes along (speaking mostly about girls here, Rhedi) I think that in this particular case, he made a very wise decision.

Awesome name, too!

Welcome to Westwood, Rhedi!
