The UCLA Bruins added a big piece to their 2013 recruiting class on Wednesday, as offensive guard John Lopez (Orange, Calif./Lutheran) announced his commitment to Jim Mora and staff.
UCLA continues to load up along the offensive line in this class, as Lopez is the fourth offensive lineman to commit to the Bruins, joining fellow four-star Erik Bunte (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif./Santa Margarita), Sean Dowling (Fallbrook, Calif./Fallbrook) and Christian Morris (Memphis/East).
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Lopez is the nation’s No. 300 recruit and selected the Bruins over the Washington Huskies. He also received offers from Colorado, Florida State, San Diego State and Utah. He is verbal commitment No. 11 for the Bruins.
