Move over Soso Jamabo (totally kidding!) as the UCLA Bruins are excited to announce the commitment from Texas 4* RB, Brandon Stephens, who made his announcement early on National Signing Day.
Since it's already been put out there, running back Brandon Stephens has committed to #UCLA, a source confirmed. https://t.co/MoA9ElBPnO— Bruin Report Online (@BruinReport) February 3, 2016
Stephens is a tall running back, 6'0" 200 lbs. and ranked #7 out of the state of Texas.He's a high quality recruit as he was a previous Stanford commit so you know he values academics. On the field, here's what Scout has to say about Stephens:
Good frame with growth potential to be a truly big back at the college level. Instinctive runner who makes defenders miss in tight quarters despite tall, long frame and generally longer stride. Plants and cuts decisively.
We get to know him a bit in Scout's Spotlight series:
Hudl has his 2014 Junior hightlights:
The Bruins continue to add elite blue-chip talent in their 2016 class, and that blue-chip ratio is looking good!
Welcome to Westwood, Brandon!
