Elisha Guidry is familiar with the ways of blue and gold. The defensive back from Murrieta is the son of two UCLA alumni, including former UCLA defensive back Javelin Guidry, and will now don his own UCLA jersey.
Guidry, a three-star prospect from Vista Murrieta High, announced his verbal commitment to UCLA on Sunday, becoming head coach Chip Kelly’s 17th known verbal commitment for the 2018 recruiting class.
The 6-foot, 177-pound prospect chose to continue his family’s UCLA legacy over other Pac-12 offers from Oregon State and Washington State. He also had interest from Yale and Northwestern.
Javelin played at UCLA from 1994 to 1997 and had four career interceptions, while Guidry’s mother Kaishauna is also a UCLA alumna. His uncle Paul, played for the Bruins from 1993 to 1996.
Guidry’s older brother, also named Javelin, is a defensive back at Utah.
