Four-star safety Cam’ron Jones committed to UCLA on Sunday night, giving the Bruins five total commits in the 2018 recruiting class.
Jim Mora’s Bruins are gathering momentum on the recruiting trail and have now snuck into the bottom half of the top 25.
In fact, they currently sit at No. 24 in the 2018 recruiting class rankings after securing their fifth total commit in the cycle, which came Sunday night when 4-star prospect Cam’ron Jones committed to UCLA.
Jones, from Mansfield, Texas, is ranked as the No. 27 safety and No. 272 overall player in the country. He chose the Bruins despite holding offers from Baylor, Colorado, Mississippi State and Oklahoma.
He released a statement regarding his pledge to UCLA.
“I’m extremely blessed from the man above to even be in the situation that I’m in, but I’m also blessed with the most wonderful people in my life. I have the most loving and supporting mother, and I’ve had multiple great coaches in the process, which has made this decision easier. With a lot of thinking and praying, I have decided to commit to the University of California Los Angeles.”
The Bruins originally offered Jones a scholarship on Oct. 7, and they were able to add him to their board a week after he spent time in Norman for an unofficial visit with Bob Stoops’ Sooners.
And it was a solid addition for UCLA.
At 6-foot, 185 lbs Jones has an ideal frame and knows the nuances of the position like the back of his hand. He’s best served in the box, where he can attack the run and flash that top-notch closing speed while taking great angles to the football.
