Plattenburg is a Bruin

The Bruins made another splash with the commitment of defensive back John Plattenburg. Following an official visit to Oklahoma this past weekend, the four-star said he knew UCLA was the right choice for him.

"It was just the feeling of knowing UCLA was right for me," Plattenburg said. "I love the coaches and the area and what they are doing down there. I just wanted to be a part of it and that's where my hearts at."

Plattenburg said he was unsure if he would take the rest of his official visits or lock things up.

"It's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders right now. I'm just excited to be a Bruin. I don't know if I'm going to take my other visits or not. I will need to talk to the coaches a little more about that."

The Bruins now have 14 total commits with the addition of Plattenburg.
