After decommitting from USC, Eldridge Massington commits to UCLA

High school wide receiver and former USC verbal commit Eldridge Massington verbally committed to UCLA on Tuesday.

High school wide receiver Eldridge Massington verbally committed to UCLA on Tuesday after decommitting from USC earlier this month.

Massington, a 4-star wide receiver from Mesquite, Texas, verbally committed to USC in May, but decommitted on December 4 because of a desire to enroll in school early. He tore his ACL during summer camp and missed his entire senior season as a result. He said he wanted to go to a school where he could enroll early to help the rehab process. When Lane Kiffin told him he wouldn't be able to enroll early at USC, Massington opened up his recruitment.

USC's loss is the Bruins gain as UCLA adds another talented piece to a stocked 2013 recruiting class. Massington reportedly chose the Bruins over Alabama and Arizona State. He announced his commitment on Twitter, becoming the 19th verbal commitment of UCLA's class.

Massington is the third wide receiver to verbally commit to UCLA, joining Darren Andrews and Ammon Barker.
