Jim Mora and company keep bringing in exceptional young talent to the UCLA Bruins football program. After having one of the most surprising national signing days in recent memory, UCLA has even more to look forward to in their 2016 class. Last night, Greg Biggins of Scout.com announced that Lokeni Toailoa, the top-ranked inside linebacker in the class of 2016, has committed to play for the Bruins:

Toailoa, who is maybe the best linebacker in the 2016 class when it comes to defending the run, had a tough time deciding between UCLA and USC but ultimately chose to stay close to his home in Rialto. He also held offers from a wide variety of schools including Oregon, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Arizona State.
Toailoa joins a 2016 class that already has commitments from Breland Brandt—the top weak-side defensive end in the 2016 class—and 4-Star wide receiver Michael Pittman. The Bruins also have a commitment from fellow 4-Star inside linebacker Krys Barnes.
