The UCLA Bruins continue to add quality depth on the defensive side of the ball, and furthered that effort Thursday with the commitment of 3-star safety Davyen Coleman.

Coleman is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound defender and has lined up all over the defense, including at cornerback and outside linebacker. He selected UCLA over offers from fellow Pac-12 schools Colorado and Utah, as well as Kansas, Iowa State, Minnesota and Syracuse among others.
“UCLA, is my dream school. I had been chasing that offer. I went out to the camp and did the camp and me and coach ‘Meat’ (UCLA DB Coach Demetrice Martin), we have always had a great relationship. It has always just been one of my dream schools since I was younger,” Coleman told Scout’s Greg Powers.
“I fell in love with the program. Players like Cam’ron Jones and a few of the other players who are committed there from out in Cali make it feel like it is the place to be.”
Coleman is the 15th commit for the Bruins in the 2018 cycle for a class which ranks 15th nationally, according to 247 Sports.
