Receiver Ryan Newsome flips from UCLA to Texas

After initially committing to UCLA almost two weeks ago, receiver Ryan Newsome flipped to Texas on Wednesday.

Newsome is the second receiver UCLA has lost on signing day, taking a little bit of air out of what has otherwise been a huge morning for the Bruins — one that has included the commitments of No. 1 tight end Chris Clark and No. 1 running back Soso Jamabo. Four-star prospect L.J. Reed will be attending a junior college instead of UCLA.

Four-star receiver L.J. Reed commits to UCLA

For the second year in a row, UCLA has landed a receiver from Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks.

Four-star wideout L.J. Reed committed to the Bruins, according to multiple reports. He follows the footsteps of former high school teammate Alex Van Dyke, who signed with UCLA this February as a top-40 prospect at his position.

Listed at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Reed is the seventh commitment in UCLA’s 2015 class and the first true wideout. Four-star athlete Jaason Lewis is listed as a receiver by, but at 6-foot-3, 234 pounds, would likely be used inside.

UCLA cornerback Marcus Rio also played at Cosumnes Oaks.
