UCLA Football Recruiting: 3-Star Linebacker Rahyme Johnson Decommits


For the second time in a week, the UCLA Football team has lost a recruit as 3-star LB Rahyme Johnson has decommitted from the Bruins.

Is something going on with the UCLA Football team or is this how recruiting goes? Though it might be a combination of both, the truth is that this is how recruitng goes.

With nine months until National Signing Day 2017, high school football players around the country are weighing their college options and looking for the best fit for them. Earlier this week, 3-star safety Rhedi Short had decommitted from the Bruins.

A few days after that, 5-star quarterback Tate Martell decommitted from Texas A&M and has the Bruins on his short list of schools he has reopened his recruitment to. There was even a little hint that the Bruins could be a favorite.

A change in the UCLA Football recruiting landscape happened again today as the Bruins lost 3-star linebacker Rayhme Johnson (Salesian HS/Los Angeles, CA).

According to Scout.com, Cal, Notre Dame, Washington, Washington State, Oregon State and Nebraska are in the running for his services after dropping UCLA.

In a Twitter post, Johnson stated that, “my family and I have decided to decommit from UCLA and re open my recruiting to see what everyone has to offer and make sure I am making the best decision for the next 4 years!!”

With Johnson’s decommitment, the Bruins now only have three players committed to the 2017 class: DE Jaelan Phillips, OT Kanan Ray, and DE Hunter Echols.
