Nine teams have made the cut for Ralen Goforth, but only one has a family connection to the 4-star linebacker from Don Bosco Prep in Bellflower, California. And UCLA can use any help it can get to land a player who is being pursued by Pac-12 rivals Oregon, USC and Washington as well as Notre Dame and schools from the Big 12 and SEC.
Thank you to ALL of the Universities….

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Goforth is ranked No. 309 in the 2019 recruiting class by 247Sports, considered the 21st-best outside linebacker and the No. 38 prospect from California. He’s also the younger brother of Randall Goforth, a defensive back who played for UCLA from 2012-16 and started 44 games and is now with the Philadelphia Eagles.
UCLA offered Goforth a scholarship in early March, one of 16 he’s received. The Bruins do not currently have any commitments for 2019 but they’ve made offers to 49 players, six at outside linebacker including Goforth’s teammate Spencer Lytle.
