Football: Bruins miss out on Devon Blackmon

Four-star athlete Devon Blackmon (Fontana, Calif./Summit) committed to Oregon at the Under Armour All-American game Wednesday, choosing the Ducks over locals UCLA and USC.

"When I went (to Eugene) on my trip, it felt like a family," Blackmon said when interviewed live on ESPN.

Had he put on the Bruins' cap, Blackmon would have been the highest-rated prospect in UCLA's current eight-player recruiting class. Four-star quarterback Brett Hundley (Chandler, Ariz./Chandler), who is expected to enroll at UCLA in time for spring practice, threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Blackmon to give the Red team an early 7-3 lead at the All-America game.
