Five-Star Running Back Soso Jamabo Chooses UCLA Over Texas

Five-star Plano (TX) Plano West running back Soso Jamabo has chosen to play his college football with UCLA, announcing his signing with the Bruins over fellow finalist Texas. Texas A&M and Notre Dame were also said to be in the running until the very end of his process.

Ranked as the #2 running back in all of the nation by 247Sports (and the #32 player overall), the Texas Longhorns originally led in the race for Jamabo, but it's UCLA who will have him in their backfield come the 2015 season.

Jamabo stands at 6-foot-2.5, 210 pounds, and could be an instant star for the Bruins with the natural talent and athletic prowess he possesses. He's a true home run threat who's able to turn seeming two-yard gains into 80-yard gashes on the drop of a dime.

"They've got a great quarterback," Jamabo said, after telling the world that the 'University of California Los Angeles' was his first and second choice.
