UCLA logo Psalm Wooching, a running back/linebacker from Kealakehe High School in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, said he has committed to play at UCLA.

Wooching, who will be a senior in the fall, is the second running back from Hawaii to commit to UCLA this week, joining Honolulu Punahou's Steven Lakalaka.

Wooching, who is 6 feet 3, 210 pounds, also was considering Washington, Utah and Colorado. He said UCLA defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield "broke down the campus, the academics they have to offer, the facilities. It's the right fit for me."

Wooching, considered a quality player on offense and defense, said he doesn't have a preference between running back and linebacker.

"Any position they put me at, I'll beat out whoever they have there," Wooching said.
