Edison's Zumwalt's reasons for UCLA

blog01signingp0203mg_1Edison linebacker Jordan Zumwalt, who picked UCLA over Stanford today, said part of the appeal with the Bruins was the opportunity to stay close to home.

Zumwalt seemed happy and relaxed after announcing his decison. After his fantastic senior season and after his commitment to Stanford, he was pursued hotly by UCLA and USC. When former Trojans coach Pete Carroll left USC for the Seattle Seahawks, however, it appeared as if his focus shifted far more to the Bruins.

And it appeared down the stretch that he would end up with UCLA, which he made official today in the Edison coaches' offices.

We'll also have more soon on another factor that could have helped convince Zumwalt to choose UCLA: The Bruins offered Zumwalt's friend, Edison's Luke Gane, a spot as a preferred walk-on and he took it.

We'll have more, including photos and videos, as the day progresses.
