December 18, 2008 |  1:32 pm

UCLA just confirmed what Chris Foster reported a little while ago: Carson High's Morrell Presley is already enrolled at Westwood and should be ready for spring practice.

Pressley, rated the No. 1 tight end in the nation by and, graduated from high school early and was anxious to begin his college career. He had first committed to USC but switched this week.

"I am obviously thrilled with Morrell’s decision," UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said in a statement. "He is a quality young man with tremendous upside as an athlete. Morrell personifies the new-age tight end. He is physical, so he can mix it up, yet agile enough to create mismatches with opponent defenses. He will love UCLA."
