The recruiting news continued to pour in on Sunday afternoon, and while Cal has cleaned up over the weekend, landing four prized recruits, UCLA received a commitment linebacker Matthew Tago.

Tago, a Lancaster, Calif., native and Quartz Hill High School product, wrote that he “decided to stay home and commit to the University of California Los Angeles GO BRUINS.”
Listed as an athlete, Tago has no set position, though it’s likely that he will play linebacker in college. A 3-star recruit, Tago also received offers from crosstown rival USC, BYU, Colorado, and Washington State, among a handful of others. Tago is the 17 athlete to commit to UCLA’s Class of 2018, four of which populate the ESPN300 list.
If linebacker is the position that Tago will play when he arrives in Los Angeles, he is the first Class of 2018 recruit to play that position. Other 4-star recruits in UCLA’s 2018 class include QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson, CB Ken Montgomery and WR Kyle Philips.
