UCLA just got a legacy, according to a report from BruinReportOnline. Owa's little (relatively speaking) brother Osa Odighizuwa committed for 2016. Osa is a three star defensive tackle who looks like he's familiar with the weight room.

According to BRO, Osa said he felt good about UCLA for many reasons. "The education is great, and I really felt at home on their campus," Odighizuwa said. "The facilities are amazing. It didn't take me long to get comfortable with them." Not surprisingly, his mom and his brother played parts in his decision, according to the BRO article: "I have committed to UCLA," Odighizuwa said on Tuesday night. "I like the staff, the campus, and the program, and I'm familiar with all three. Owa and my mom were both excited and happy for me." Owa and Osa's mom is a special lady, and we're not surprised that her kids turned out to be Bruins.

Osa is rated as a three star defensive end by Rivals.com.  247 Sports reports that "UCLA now has eight commitments in the 2016 class and the No. 1 class in the Pac-12."

Welcome to Westwood, Osa. You'll love it here. Just ask Owa. (Or ask Kareem.)
