UCLA grabbed two offensive linemen and a quarterback from Florida for its 2017 recruiting class and now have a running back from the Sunshine State on the way. Lentivone Lesane, a two-sport athlete at Florida’s Mater Academy, announced his commitment to UCLA on Twitter on Wednesday.
Lesane is a lightly recruited three-star prospect, according to Scout.com, and a two-star according to Rivals. Utah gave him his only other Pac-12 offer, while Central Florida, Syracuse, Illinois and Cincinnati also came calling. Aside from football, Lesane also is a sprinter on the track team; his 100-meter personal record is 11.34 seconds.
UCLA lost a commitment from three-star running back AJ Carter on June 26 (UPDATED JULY 1, 4:25 p.m. — Carter is back) when he flipped to his home-state school LSU. Lesane is UCLA’s 13th verbal commit for 2018 and only running back.
