Three-star defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa commits to UCLA football


UCLA football added three-star defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa to its 2016 recruiting class on Tuesday night, Bruin Report Online initially reported.

The name should be familiar for UCLA fans. Odighizuwa is the younger brother of former five-star Bruin defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, who was selected by the New York Giants with the 74th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft just four days earlier.

Osa Odighizuwa, a 6-foot-3 junior, was the 2014 Mt. Hood Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year and an all-state defensive lineman. He represents the eighth commitment for the class and is scheduled to graduate from David Douglas High School in Portland, Ore., in 2016.
