Hamilton Linebacker Jeremiah Trojan Commits to UCLA

This is one of the few times a Trojan is headed to UCLA and the Bruin-faithful are happy about it.

2020 Hamilton linebacker Jeremiah Trojan held over 15 offers, predominantly from the Ivy League and academies, but it took him just four days to commit to UCLA after they extended an offer.

As a junior, Trojan was second on the team with 77 tackles with seven tackles for loss.

The linebacker currently stands at 6-foot-4 and upwards of 230 pounds. 

He’s the third commitment of UCLA’s class. It seems like the Bruins are attempting to reestablish the pipeline to Arizona, adding zero players from the state in the class of 2019, and Mountain Pointe safety Kenny Churchwell was the lone commitment from Arizona in 2018. Right now, the Bruins have offered 13 Arizona prospects, including Trojan’s Hamilton teammate Brenden Rice.

Interestingly enough, another Arizona prospect had a similary recruitment last recruiting cycle, but he ended up at Trojan’s now rival USC. Desert Mountain quarterback Kedon Slovis had received plenty of attention and had double-digit offers. USC was the fourth Power 5 program to offer Slovis on May 14th, 2018. He committed five days later.
