Dorian Thompson-Robinson reaffirms UCLA commitment

Prized quarterback recruit Dorian Thompson-Robinson doubled-down on his UCLA commitment on Twitter on Monday, one day after the school fired Jim Mora.

Thompson-Robinson, a four-star prospect out of powerhouse Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas, is the crown jewel of UCLA’s 2018 recruiting class along with four-star cornerback Olaijah Griffin. The dual-threat quarterback is expected to compete for the starting spot immediately if junior Josh Rosen declares for the NFL draft after this season.

Three-star defensive lineman Niti Liu also reaffirmed his commitment to the Bruins while linebacker Matthew Tago is seemingly starting to wane, although he writes that he’s still committed to UCLA.

UCLA was a 16-point underdog against No. 11 USC, and lost by five, but left at least nine easy points on the field in its 28-23 loss to the Trojans on Saturday at the Coliseum.

The Bruins (5-6, 3-5 Pac-12) lost their third straight game to USC and it cost head coach Jim Mora his job as UCLA announced his firing on Sunday morning.

Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch will take over as interim head coach as the Bruins have a chance to secure bowl eligibility on Nov. 24 at the Rose Bowl against California.

Here are links to wrap up Mora’s final game with the Bruins:
