Defensive end Chinonso Anyanwu and linebacker Reggie Carter have decided to be Bruins.

Both of the players from Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw received written offers in the mail Saturday.

According to Anyanwu's mother, he called the UCLA coaches Sunday to commit. Carter said he would wait until today to call.

Anyanwu is 6-4 and 205, has good quickness and pursues the ball well. The issue concerning Anyanwu is whether he'll be able to put on enough weight in college to play defensive end. If he doesn't, he could end up a linebacker on the next level.

Carter is a prospect who is emerging as one of the best linebackers in Southern California, according to scouts who have seem him this year.

Friday was a day "out" for UCLA coaches, a day they're allowed to have seven coaches on the road at schools and games in order to evaluate. Head Coach Karl Dorrell went to Crenshaw High on Friday. That night, at Crenshaw's homecoming game, he saw the 6-1, 225-pound Carter get 11 tackles and three sacks. When Carter returned home that night, he said he saw the caller ID of Eric Bieniemy, UCLA's assistant coach, on his telephone.

For Anyanwu, UCLA is a family tradition, with his sister currently a senior at UCLA.

Of course, Crenshaw offensive lineman Aleksey Lanis is already committed to UCLA.

The Crenshaw Cougars also have Gardner McKay, a defensive back prospect, that UCLA is interested in.
