Kuron Jubari, a 3-star defensive back, announced today that he had officially committed the UCLA Football.

Jabari liked what he saw, reportedly committing before he left campus while on an official visit.

“They offered me on the visit and I committed on the spot,” Jabari told 247 Sports. “UCLA just feels like home to me and I’m looking forward to being a part of the culture coach Foster is building. “It’s not just about football with UCLA, I love the campus and the degree from there is second to none so I’m really excited about my decision.”

At 6’1″ and 185 pounds, Jabari has impressive speed for his size. He ran an 11.30-100m and a 22.76-200m at a track meet according to 247 Sports. He is from Temecula, CA, and attended Chaparrall High where he racked up 31 tackles, one interception, and 10 passes defended.

This is even more evidence that Foster is more active than his predecessor in recruiting and also focusing efforts in Southern California.
