Bolu Olorunfunmi has been one of the most pleasant surprises in UCLA’s 2015 recruiting class, showing off surprising quickness and speed and establishing himself as a legitimate option in this season’s backfield.
The three-star recruit is excited to get going too. On Sunday, he posted on Twitter a bit of film from one of the Bruins’ practices, one that featured him wiggling through a hole for a few hard-earned yards. As he broke through the line, he stiff-armed linebacker Myles Jack — leaving the star linebacker on the ground for a few seconds.
But Jack also took to Twitter to clarify what happened:

So, what really happened on that play?
“Honestly, I’ve been known in high school to kind of put my hand in facemasks,” said Olorunfunmi, who deleted his original tweet. “I’m not even sure what happened. I don’t even remember doing that in the play. Once I get the ball, I just run.”
