Englewood (Colo.) Cherry Creek two-way athlete Nathan Starks said at the beginning of the week that Oklahoma, Florida State and UCLA were his top three schools.

On Saturday evening, after Starks played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, he called UCLA head coach Jim Mora, the two talked, the Bruins handed down an offer and Starks jumped on board.

"I'm a UCLA Bruin," Starks said on Saturday. "I can't wait to play for Coach Mora and Polamalu. I've always liked UCLA, this is a dream for me."

Starks, the No. 2 ranked player in Colorado, is a four-star safety by Scout but he'll play running back for the Bruins.

He is the third commit to UCLA in the past 24 hours and the third player from the West's team from the Army Bowl.

Last night, Zach Whitley committed to UCLA and during the game, Dwight Williams pledged to the Bruins.

Starks rounded it out with his commitment.

Brandon is in his ninth year with and FOX Sports, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
