Psalm Wooching , a running back/linebacker from Hawaii’s Kealakehe High, just confirmed numerous reports that he has committed to UCLA.
I fly back from New York tomorrow and have an interview set up with him for tomorrow night, barring any unforeseen complications, and I’m really looking forward to the talk. We emailed back and forth briefly, and he seems like a great kid. Last thing he said was, “Happy to become a Bruin,” and that was just him saying goodbye.
I’ve long talked about UCLA getting this type of player, and it’s the second one in two days, as Scout.com’s Brandon Huffman reported yesterday that the Bruins picked up another commitment from Honolulu Punahou High running back Steven Lakalaka. Inoke Breckterfield is doing well so far with his new recruiting commitment, something Huffman foresaw in our recent chat.
Take a look at his film, and watch how Wooching reads blockers. Pretty good. He’ll have to put on some weight to play at the next level, but he seems to have some real football instincts.
