Three-star quarterback Aaron Sharp commits to UCLA

UCLA has found the next dual-threat piece in its quarterback line of succession. Three-star prospect Aaron Sharp committed to the Bruins Monday night, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Houston product visited UCLA this past weekend along with six other recruits. Barring injuries to multiple quarterbacks, he will redshirt the 2014 season behind rising junior Brett Hundley and redshirt freshman Asiantii Woulard.

Sharp was previously committed to Kansas State, and briefly to Utah. He was also reportedly set to visit Washington. Rivals.com ranks him as the 18th-best dual-threat quarterback in the country, while Scout.com has him as their No. 60 quarterback.

    Good velocity on throws but can put touch on passes when needed, good size, speed, etc. What’s not to like? Glad to have him coming to Westwood and give some depth to the QB position behind BH and AW. Go Bruins!

    Welcome to Westwood Aaron! We’re happy to have you!

    Noticed during the video that his center seemed to give him fits at times. Able to recover from bad snaps well though. Also has pretty good accuracy, but had very few throws where he had to look for a second option.

      Good observation re not having to check down very often. Hopefully that skill is developed and honed during the redshirt year. Go Bruins!

    I love our new pattern in recruited QBs. My gosh, the Olsen-Olson-Brehaut-Prince train got real old. Now we have Hundley, Woulard, and Sharp. Talk about a huge step in the right direction!

    Good luck Bruins, the kid has changed his mind about four times now. He was committed to Houston, then backed out. He was committed to Utah, then claimed he wanted to stay closer to home. Now Kansas State…..it’s a long time until Feb. 5th, unless you tie him down, the kid can’t make a decision to save his life. I don’t think that is a good quality, a QB who can’t make a decision.

    Four-star OL Kolton Miller made the pledge to UCLA Wednesday night.

    We can still use him as a receiver or cornerback if we get too stocked at quarterback.

    Remember that Anthony Barr was a quarterback until he got to UCLA and was converted to defense.
