UCLA has pulled a tight end recruit from 2,000 miles across the country.
On Wednesday morning, three-star prospect Jordan Wilson committed to the Bruins, picking them over several schools closer to his Nashville home — including Louisville and Missouri. He was also being recruited by some schools, including Oregon State, as a defensive end.
At around 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, Wilson is easily the biggest pass-catcher verbally committed to UCLA’s 2016 class. He caught 21 passes for 317 yards and a touchdown as a junior, and was part of a Montgomery Bell Academy roster that won its first Division II-AA state title since 2007.
