Aundre Dean commits to Bruins.

Katy High School running back Aundre Dean committed to the Bruins yesterday. Dean originally had given a verbal commitment to Texas A&M but an unofficial visit to Westwood changed this mind. He's now saying he'll be a Bruin and he looks like a great pick-up for the staff.

Dean racked up 2,100 yards and scored 27 TDs as a junior. He was first-team all-district and all-greater Houston and an all-state honorable mention. Sometimes a recruit's numbers are inflated by playing against weaker competition, but Dean plays in Texas football's toughest division, 5A.

He stand at 6'1" and weights 200 lbs. Scout reports that he runs a 4.5 in the 40. Those numbers are very similar to another running back that graced the Rose Bowl turf for the Bruins, DeShaun Foster. He also runs a lot like Foster, with the speed to burn you and the power to knock you right over. Here are two videos of Dean in action:

In an interview with Scout, Dean said, “Honestly, the reason I picked UCLA was mainly the coaching staff. In between the time from when I de-committed from A&M, they didn’t pressure. ... They knew that when I went up there for the maroon and white game it might have brought me closer to them. But it actually brought me closer to UCLA.”

UCLA doesn't usually get kids out of Texas, so it will be interesting to hear about how this kid ended up in Westwood. He looks like a great commitment and another addition to an already excellent 2008 recruiting class.
