Short had announced on Twitter on Sunday that he will be decommitting from the Bruins.

Per Scout.com, Short is the #3 safety in California in the 2017 class.

Short had stated, “The decision was tough to make, but I have come to the realization that this is currently what is best for me and my future.” Short had thanked the Bruins and Head Coach Jim Mora in his message.

This announcement comes just after Short had recently taken a visit to Arizona. Short also received a scholarship offer from Arizona State immediately after his announcement.

The Bruins are now left without a defensive back for the 2017 class. Currently, UCLA Football only has four players committed to the Bruins for next year: DE Jaelan Phillips, OT Kanan Ray, DE Hunter Echols and LB Rahyme Johnson.

Unfortuantely, Short wasn’t the only player the Bruins lost over the weekend, though this one is due to transfer. Receiver Aaron Sharp tweeted out that he has decided to leave Westwood.

Sharp was a quarterback turned receiver that was not able to see much time on the field. Though his transition looked promising when he converted in 2015, he was not able to record a catch playing for UCLA.
