UCLA rebuilds OL class with three-star tackle Alec Anderson

UCLA got the first part of its new offensive line group for the 2018 recruiting class on Sunday as three-star offensive lineman Alec Anderson flipped his commitment from Washington State to the Bruins.

Anderson, a 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle from Etiwanda High, told the Daily Bulletin that he was worried about Washington State head coach Mike Leach‘s job status in Pullman as Leach was connected with several high-profile coaching vacancies last week.

The Bruins lost a commitment from Trey Stratford on Sunday morning, who was the last of the five offensive linemen who had committed under Jim Mora to back away from UCLA. Anderson is Chip Kelly’s second commit after the new head coach also got a pledge from speedy running back Kazmeir Allen.

Anderson said he attended a camp at UCLA, but never officially received an offer from Mora’s staff. He was also considering Arizona State and Oregon State.
