English Heading West

Bryce English, 5-foot-11, 315-pound defensive tackle from DeSoto (Texas) High had a unique experience getting to commit to UCLA on television.

The one time Texas Longhorn commit has been through a lot on the recruiting trail, forced to open his recruitment back up after the departure of Mack Brown in Austin.

"It was very difficult. With the help of my family, friends and my coaches I think I finally picked the right school," English said live on Fox 4.

English picked the Bruins over Arkansas, Arizona State and TCU.

First he eliminated ASU by tossing its hat from the table of finalists, making it a top three of the Bruins, Hogs and Horned Frogs.

"They are great program, nothing against them, but these other three schools really fit me," English informed.

Then he eliminated the Hogs, bringing it to two schools.

"I am gonna go ahead and throw out Arkansas," English continued his eliminations by tossing the hat from the table.

With only two hats on the table English confirmed he would be going out of state and playing in Westwood.

"I will be continuing my college career in collegiate football at the University of California Los Angeles," English said as he slipped on the Bruins cap.

"It's a great fit for me and I love Los Angeles."

English is rated as a scout three-star defensive tackle, the No. 32 overall player at his position nationally.
