Bruins, Cardinal gaining steam 

June, 24, 2011
UCLA landed its second commit of the day on Friday when offensive lineman Mario Yakoo (Spring Valley, Calif./Spring Valley) announced for the Bruins.

"They offered me today and I jumped on it," Yakoo said. "I camped at UCLA last week and I thought I did pretty well. My goal was to play well enough to get an offer and that's just what happened. I've liked UCLA for a while now so when they offered I didn't waste much time in accepting it.

"I pretty pumped right now because UCLA is such a good school. I really enjoyed working with the coaches at the camp and it felt like home to me. I didn't plan on committing so early but when I thought about it, UCLA was my top school and where I felt most comfortable so I didn't see a need to wait."
