On Tuesday, Tyler Partlow announced his decision to commit to UCLA football. He is the ninth member of the 2025 recruiting class, joining just days after four-star quarterback Madden Iamaleava committed to the program. Five of the nine are members of the defense.

The 6’4″, 270 soon-to-be senior had an official visit with the Bruins on May 31st. UCLA had not offered him a scholarship until April 27th. They were one of seven schools that offered Partlow and were the last to do so. Among the other schools were Washington, Oregon State, Rutgers, and Maryland.
