Oh, how the tables turn.
The UCLA Bruins have looked resurgent on the football field in recent weeks and that resurgence has led to a noticeable uptick in recruiting, as four-star wide receiver Logan Loya out of football powerhouse St. John Bosco became the latest player to announce his commitment to the Bruins tonight.
Logan Loya is a 5’11”, 185 pound wide receiver prospect playing at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, California. He is a consensus four-star recruit via 247Sports Composite Rankings, with composite rankings as the 326th best prospect in the nation and the 26th best prospect in the state of California. UCLA had to fight hard for his services, as his offer sheet runs the gamut through the Pac-12 and beyond, with the Oregon recruiting juggernaut in particular being UCLA’s biggest competitor for Loya’s services.
Loya has been a prolific receiver for St. John Bosco. He currently has 41 catches for 726 yards and five touchdowns through nine games. Prior to this year, Loya spent the past two years at Orange Lutheran, where he put up similarly gaudy numbers as a sophomore and junior.
The timing of Loya’s commitment makes perfect sense. Long considered a UCLA lean, Loya took his official visit to the school this past weekend and was present at the Rose Bowl as the Bruins completed a solid victory over Colorado. With UCLA currently surging, it looks as though Loya won’t be the only prospect looking to jump on board. In fact, UCLA also picked up a commitment last week when three-star linebacker Ioholani Raass out of Lehi Skyridge in Utah also announced his commitment to the Bruins.
