UCLA football: Safety Ilaiu Moeakiola opts for Bruins

Uclalogo_150UCLA may be struggling on the football field, but the Bruins still picked up a commitment Monday.

Ilaiu Moeakiola, a senior safety at Euless (Texas) Trinity High, said he will attend UCLA. Moeakiola was also being heavily recruited by Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Tulsa.

“Over the weekend, I was praying with my family, looking over the colleges to see which one was the best fit,” Moeakiola said. “UCLA has the academic excellence, the location is great and I have plenty of family out there for support.”

Moeakiola, who is 6 feet and 185 pounds, had 108 tackles and intercepted one pass last season.
