UCLA football: Esperanza center Carl Hulick commits to the Bruins
Hulick is ranked 11th nationally among centers by Rivals.com and 19th by Scout.com. The 6-foot-2, 285-pound lineman had committed to Southern Methodist but changed his mind after SMU assistant coach Adrian Klemm was hired at UCLA.
“I was apprehensive at first, but after talking with coach Klemm and Coach [Jim] Mora I felt that UCLA was where I wanted to go,” Hulick said. “After spending 30 seconds with Coach Mora, I could tell the fire he had and knew the changes he wanted to make. And Coach Klemm, I feel like I have been playing for him for years.”
Hulick also said, “There is a buzz going around” about UCLA. “Huge things are going to happen there. The opportunity to be a part of that and change things is exciting."
