Dashon Hunt commits to UCLA 

August, 19, 2011
UCLA got its 2013 class off to a good start by landing CB Dashon Hunt (Westlake Village, Calif./Westlake) on Thursday.

Hunt earned all-CIF honors last season after totaling 60 tackles, seven interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns and one 97-yard fumble return for a score. Hunt added 305 yards rushing and seven touchdowns but his future is definitely on the defensive side of the ball.

"I've always liked UCLA," Hunt said. "They offered me about a month after our season ended, around January and I've been thinking about doing this ever since. UCLA is close to home and I'm used to the weather. They have great academics as well as a great athletic program and when I graduate from here, they'll be losing all their starting corners so it was a great fit for me."
