Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian athlete Jermaine Kelly committed to UCLA over the summer and is still confident with his decision. He talks Bruins, the upcoming season, and more...

Last spring, Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian athlete Jermaine Kelly was still considered an under-the-radar prospect.

Now, as the Mustangs prepare to kick off the season, Kelly has emerged on the field and as a leader, picking up a few offers along the way.

Kelly, however, decided to end the recruiting process early on and jumped at the opportunity to play ball at UCLA.

"Rose Bowl!" he said of why he chose the Bruins. "Jim Mora is a great coach; he's going to turn it all around and it's going to be great. I just can't wait to be a part of it. Go Bruins!," he said.

He plays both sides of the ball for the Mustangs and could potentially see himself in a similar situation when he arrives in Westwood.

Kelly has also been doing a little bit of his own recruiting, talking to UCLA target Tahaan Goodman.

As he works in preparation for his final season at Salesian, there's one thing Kelly is sure of: the status of his commitment.

"I'm very strong. That's my school right now, that's my number one," he said.
