The Jim Mora recruiting train continued to roll on this week as the Bruins just picked up a huge commitment from Texas (their third one). Eldridge Massington, a 4 star WR Mesquite, Texas/West Mesquite) committed to the Bruins on Twitter tonight:

Massington picked the Bruins over Alabama (wow) and Arizona State. As reported in the Dallas Morning News (HT Kenneth Powers):
Massington is a four-star recruit according to Rivals.com. He is ranked as the 244th best player in the country, the 33rd best receiver and the 20th best player in Texas.
He sat out all of this season after tearing his ACL at a summer camp. Massington gave a verbal to USC before the injury, but decommitted two weeks ago after he was told he wasn't going to be able to attend the school for the winter semester.
Massington, who will graduate this month, said previously he wanted to go to a school that allowed him to get on campus early to rehab his knee.
Massington will be enrolling in UCLA and get ready for his classes this January. He is the 19th commitment of our recruiting class, which is currently ranked number 10 on Scout.com.

Welcome to Westwood Eldridge.
As for the Bruins, they are not done yet. Coach Mora and his staff have their targets set on few other high profile recruits. The class is shaping up nicely. Although, I do think the coaches must bring in a quarter back to make it complete.
