Three-star defensive tackle Bryce English commits to UCLA

UCLA has landed its first defensive line recruit of 2015.

Three-star tackle Bryce English announced his verbal commitment to the Bruins Monday night on Dallas’ Fox 4 station, adding another piece to a young, talented unit. UCLA already enters this upcoming season with seven freshman and sophomore defensive linemen, including star nose tackle Kenny Clark.

Rated the 22nd-best tackle in the country by Rivals.com, the 5-foot-11, 318-pound English was a Class 5A defensive honorable mention and the 7-5A District defensive MVP. He helped DeSoto High to the state semifinal, and was also invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

“It’s a great fit for me, defensive-wise,” English said of UCLA during his announcement. “I love the coaches. Coach (Angus) McClure, great D-line coach. I talked it over with my family right after I left UCLA. I just knew from there it was a great fit coming in. Being in Los Angeles, it’s a great city.”

He chose the Bruins over three other hats he had on the table: TCU, Arkansas and Arizona State. He had verbally committed to Texas in March 2013, when Mack Brown was still the Longhorns’ head coach, but decommitted in April.

    Very nice. There are only 15 spots in this class and it will be full up soon enough.

      How many spots are left?

        I think we are up to 11 commits so far. Of course, some will change schools (these are verbals after all), some will grey shirt and we may have a few spots open up at the end of the season, but for now, 4 spots open.
