UCLA football had a fairly quiet showing during the traditional signing day period, which began Wednesday, after doing most of its heavy lifting in December during the early signing period.
The Bruins’ recruiting class is ranked 29th in the nation and fourth in the Pac-12 Conference, according to 247sports.
Westlake Village Oaks Christian and Army All-American punter Brenden Segovia announced on Twitter that he would no longer attend UCLA and will instead consider offers from Michigan State and USC. Segovia, a committed walk-on, was not granted academic admission, according to 247sports.
Won’t be attending UCLA anymore. New offers from USC and Michigan state! Time to keep keep plugging away, and find a new place to call home; It’s exciting to be a recruit again, I have faith in this journey.

Of the 17 high school prospects to already sign, defensive end Quintin Somerville of Saguaro High (Scottsdale, Ariz.), offensive tackle Thomas Cole (San Luis Obispo) and wide receiver Keontez Lewis (East Saint Louis, Ill.) are already enrolled with the university.
Defensive end Hayden Nelson (Brookfield, Wisc.) remains the lone verbal commit yet to officially sign with the Bruins.
FROM THE TRANSFER PORTAL:
Former Michigan running back Zach Charbonnet, a former Westlake Village Oaks Christian High running back, spent two seasons at Michigan and announced last week that he was committed to the Bruins.
The former four-star prospect rushed for 726 yards and 11 touchdowns at Michigan in 2019 but saw a decrease in production in 2020 with 124 yards and 19 touchdowns in five games.
His 11 touchdowns in 2019 set the Wolverines’ single-season freshman rushing touchdown record. He was also named All-Big Ten honorable mention.
Senior safety Cameron Johnson also committed to the Bruins this offseason. The Houston native will join an experienced group of defensive backs. He played at least 12 games in each of his first three seasons with North Texas and eight games during the shortened 2020 season.
Johnson will take advantage of the extra year of eligibility, granted by the NCAA, as a result of the pandemic.
