UCLA lands quarterback commit for class of 2017

2017 quarterback Austin Burton flipped his commitment from Boston College to UCLA on Monday. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound pro-style QB is a three-star prospect, according to ESPN, and a two-star according to 247Sports.

Burton is UCLA’s first quarterback commit in the class of 2017 and eighth commit overall. The Bruins were targeting San Clemente quarterback Jack Sears, but he committed to Duke earlier this month.
