It’s been a very good week for UCLA Bruins football recruiting. It started with receiver Logan Loya from St. John Bosco committing. Then, it got better when linebackers Choe Bryant-Strother and Jonathan Vaughns announced their commitments on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
Yesterday, it got even better.
That’s because Hoschton, Georgia linebacker Myles Jackson recommitted to the Bruins yesterday.
Thank you to all my friends and family that have been with me through this recruiting process. I am committed to UCLA edit:@Hayesfawcett3 pic.twitter.com/y64Fi1BzJI— Myles jackson ♂️ (@Myleslxi) November 8, 2019
These days, it’s rare to see a recruit decommit from a school and then turn around and recommit. That makes Jackson’s recommitment a very big deal.
When Jackson originally committed back in June, Bruins Nation profiled him at that time.
But, Jackson had backed off that commitment in September.
An article by Brandon Huffman on BruinReportOnline quotes Jackson:
Everything about UCLA is why I recommitted. It still feels like home.
After I took all my visits that I needed to, nobody compared.
What really stood out to me was the way the players were cared for and taken care of. The coaches genuinely believe in them.
According to Huffman, the thing that got Jackson back on board with the Bruins was that they didn’t pressure him to recommit.
Huffman also indicates that Jackson plans to sign in December.
Welcome back to Westwood, Myles!
