Bruins reel in four-star WR Eldridge Massington

Four-star receiver Eldridge Massington, a former USC commit, decided on the Bruins Tuesday night. He had previously planned to release his decision on Saturday, but had a change of heart and picked UCLA over Alabama and USC.

It’s quite a coup for the Bruins, who had the top offensive line class in the country but was low on offensive skill players for 2013.

Massington had decommitted from the Trojans because he wouldn’t have been able to enroll for spring semester. He missed his entire senior season at West Mesquite High with an ACL tear and wanted to be on a college campus to rehab.

A Dallas area recruit, he follows offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch as another four-star prize out of the Lone Star state. Go ahead and thank line coach and crack recruiter Adrian Klemm for both.

    That article about Massington decommitting from USC listed which schools made offers initially. UCLA was not on that list. I wonder what changed that got UCLA interested.

    It’s been a great December: Mazzone says he staying as OC; Barr says he staying for his senior year; and we pick up some critical recruits in Benenoch, Massington, Redmond, etc. But arguably the most entertaining bit of news: Lane Kiffin announces he’s going to hang onto the Denny’s menu and continue as SC’s OC. It’s great to be a Bruin…

      Do view that as an announcement? While never thought for a second he’d delegate play calling (he even called plays when he was the Raiders HC), I’d hardly call any answer given to Scott Wolf as gospel.

      There are many other times, Kiffin just want to move on from SW’s questions that seem to focus more on second guessing the coach than real USC news.

    I’ll be at the game next week. Going to huge. Not since the Cade Mcnown days have I been more excited about football than basketball. And to hear of these recruits coming in for next year creates even more excitement.
