Three days, three commitments.
After an almost unbearably slow summer which saw several recruits de-commit, UCLA’s 2017 recruiting class is picking up momentum very quickly this week as UCLA has now doubled the size of the next recruiting class in just a few days.
Today, UCLA landed a commitment from 4-star tight end Jimmy Jaggers from Roseville HS in Roseville, CA. Jaggers is considered to be one of the top tight ends in this year’s recruiting class.
Jaggers made his announcement via Twitter:

So, there you have it.
Not only will Jaggers be a Bruin next season, but he will also be an early enrollee! We love early enrollees because it means they can’t be flipped in that final month between the end of the football season and National Signing Day in February and early enrollees also tend to be pretty firm in the commitments overall.
Jaggers is 6’4” tall and weighs 244 lbs.
He’s got a ton of highlights posted to Hudl. Here are his junior year highlights:
Greg Biggins of Scout spoke with Jaggers about his commitment. Jaggers told Biggins:
My dad and I had dinner last night and we talked about everything and what UCLA offered was just too much to pass up. I debated back and forth between a few schools but I kept coming back to the people at UCLA and the opportunity to play there and that put them over the top....I'm going to be an early graduate and will be able to enroll at UCLA in time for Spring ball so I'm excited about that. I think UCLA is building something special right now and I'm very excited to be a part of that.
Sounds like a well-spoken young man to me and I can’t wait to see him wearing an new Under Armour UCLA uni next season.
Welcome to Westwood, Jimmy!
