Adrian Klemm is at work again.
UCLA just picked up a commitment from a 4* offensive lineman - Tevita Halalilo out of Moreno Valley, CA (Rancho Verde High School).
From Scout.com's profile page:
Halalilo plays tackle for RV but at 6-3, 315 pounds, projects as a guard down the road. He's a mauler with very good feet and balance and just manhandles opposing lineman at the H.S level. You like to see guards with tackle feet and mobility and Halalilo has it. He has great strength, is very physical and plays with the kind of edge you love to see in an interior prospect-Biggins
Halalilo had offers from number of Pac-12 schools including Arizona State and Washington, and non-conference powerhouses such as Oklahoma and Miami. Here are some highlights here:
As we know in recruiting game -- this is still early. It's not FINAL until the letters come in on NSD. Still this is a big get for Coaches Klemm and Mora, and will only add more fire to Bruins' momentum on the recruiting trail.
