UCLA picked up a third commit in as many days as four-star tight end/defensive end Jimmy Jaggers announced his commitment on Twitter on Thursday.
Jaggers had a slew of offers from other schools, including USC, Alabama, Arizona and Texas A&M. According to 247Sports, he is the No. 8 tight end in the country and 29th-best prospect in California.

Jaggers, from Roseville High in the Sacramento area, is UCLA’s sixth commit for the class of 2017. Three-star defensive backs Chris Wilson and Jaylan Shaw committed earlier in the week, joining five-star weakside defensive end Jaelan Phillips, three-star offensive lineman Kanan Ray and JUCO offensive lineman Ronald Rudd III as UCLA commits.
