OL commit Jason Dickson decommits from UCLA

Junior college offensive lineman Jason Dickson announced his decommitment from UCLA on Monday via Twitter. The 6-foot-7, 295-pound offensive tackle for Diablo Valley College also has Pac-12 offers from Colorado, Arizona and Arizona State.

The Bruins still have 23 known verbal commitments for the class of 2018, including four three-star offensive linemen: Chris Bleich, Blake McDonald, Trey Stratford and Marco Brewer.

Brewer, originally from Corvallis, Ore., has not played football this season after he was charged with felony rape during the summer. He transferred from Corvallis High to Grant High School in Portland and plans to graduate in February, according to the Corvallis Gazette-Times.
