UCLA football recruiting: Austin Roberts commits to the Bruins

Student Sports

Jim Mora and the Bruins went east to grab Austin Roberts out of Indiana, giving them their fifth commitment of 2014.

Wide receiver Austin Roberts has committed to the UCLA Bruins, according to the Indianapolis Star. Roberts is a consensus four-star recruit and is rated as one of the top prospects in the state of Indiana.

Roberts, who stands 6'2 and weighs 211 pounds, chose the Bruins over offers from Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Miami and Louisville, and he also held offers from Florida State, Indiana, Nebraska, Michigan State, Stanford and USC, among others.

The Carmel (Ind.) High School star is rated as the top player in the state of Indiana by both Rivals and ESPN, and is among the top three in all major services. His commitment is only UCLA's fifth of the 2014 recruiting cycle, which places the Bruins 10th in the Pac-12. However, three of those five commitments are rated as four-stars, so that ranking should rise once the class begins to fill out more.
