UCLA Football Adds Surprise Transfer DL Chigozie Nnoruka To Solid Recruiting Class

The Bruins added one more defensive lineman for good measure this afternoon when they announced that Chigozie Nnoruka would transfer from American River College near Sacramento.


UCLA added one more unexpected defensive lineman this afternoon. Transfer Chigozie Nnoruka from American River College near Sacramento became the most recent Bruin to commit today.

Last season, he had 35 tackles, three sacks and eight tackles for loss and, as a prep senior in 2014, he made 54 tackles, 10 sacks for Kennedy HS in Sacramento.

Nnoruka's signing was a bit of a surprise to everyone following UCLA's recruiting class.

The announcement of his signing was made by UCLA which included some quick highlights.

Chigozie also tweeted it out as well.

Hudl has his highlights from both 2014 at Kennedy High in Sacramento and 2015 at American River College. Here are his 2015 highlights from American River.

Chigozie looks like a welcome addition in a position where UCLA needs more help and the Bruins continue to fill areas of need in their 2016 class. Hopefully, Chigozie is able to step right in and help our defensive line!

Welcome to Westwood, Chigozie!
