Patrick Jolly‘s first commitment was to Scott Frost at Central Florida. Now the versatile athlete from Florida will play for Frost’s mentor.
Jolly, a three-star athlete, according to 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings, verbally committed to UCLA on Sunday, bringing head coach Chip Kelly‘s 2018 recruiting class to 13 total prospects with two and a half weeks left until National Signing Day.
Jolly committed to Frost’s Knights in June, but backed off his pledge soon after the upstart young coach took the head job at Nebraska. Frost’s uptempo offense that led the UCF to a perfect 13-0 season in 2017 was based off Kelly’s system at Oregon where the pair coached together from 2009-12.
Jolly’s only other Pac-12 offer came from Oregon State. The versatile 6-foot-1, 177-pound athlete also got looks from Rutgers and Syracuse.
