Former Boise State defensive tackle Nick Terry commits to UCLA

UCLA needs to add depth to its defensive line. Nick Terry could help.

After a false start to his collegiate career at Boise State, the 6-foot-4, 295-pound tackle committed to the Bruins on Thursday night. The three-star JUCO prospect will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Seven games into his redshirt sophomore season at American River College in Sacramento, Terry has notched 42 tackles and four sacks. He had originally signed with Boise State in 2013, redshirting his first season before playing just one game last fall. The Pleasant Grove High product left the Broncos in September, but finished out the semester before transferring closer to home.

UCLA did not sign any defensive tackles this past spring, and could lose starting nose tackle Kenny Clark to the NFL draft.

Terry is the third defensive line recruit committed to UCLA’s 2016 class, after defensive end Marcus Moore and defensive tackle Osa Odighizuwa — the younger brother of former Bruin star Owa Odighizuwa.
