After losing four of its top five pass catchers, UCLA made a big push to add more.
The Bruins now have six receivers committed to its 2016 class, adding Plano East product Adewale Omotosho to the haul on Wednesday morning. The 6-foot-2, 189-pound wideout joins a receiving corps that already includes top-20 prospects in Theo Howard — who is already enrolled — and Damian Alloway, who committed last week.
The prospect of playing with star quarterback Josh Rosen almost certainly factored into their decisions.
Omotosho is considered a four-star recruit by Scout, as well as one of the top-10 high school receivers in Texas. Rivals ranks him as a three-star recruit.
He is also the third player in a little over a year to make the journey to Westwood from Plano, Texas. Running back Brandon Stephens of Plano Senior High had picked UCLA an hour earlier, while former Plano West star Soso Jamabo totaled 404 rushing yards for the Bruins as a true freshman this past fall.
