Milton Knox is a Bruin

Well, everyone was saying Knox might commit soon after fellow teammate Carter decided. Carter gave his verbal this weekend and Knox gave his today. I'm very excited about this latest edition. Milton brings a swagger and a toughness that you don't find in all recruits. This is a huge addition to the 2008 and we're looking at the best Bruin class in a decade.

I think he could be a game breaker and he is definitely built in the mold of Maurice Drew. He isn't very big, 5'8" 192 lbs, but Knox is a tough running back who can break tackles and bust through a crowd. He is an excellent pass catcher as well and, in almost every way, is like a clone of Drew. He doesn't have the top-end speed that Drew brings, but he's very quick with his direction changes and he's every bit as elusive.

Milton will probably set a number of LA city records this year. He is a 3-year starter at Birmingham and he's racked up a ton of yards in his tenure there. He rushed for 2,374 yards and scored 29 touchdowns last year. That effort earned him the Los Angeles City Section Player of the Year award as well as First Team All-State honors. Both Rivals and Scout list him in their top players for 2008 and he has earned 4 stars from both services.

Knox has, by far, the best YouTube video library of any recruit I have ever seen. There are definitely some prolific posters on the video service that love Birmingham High School. Here is just a sampling:
Here is the latest recruiting snapshot ( PDF ) that includes Harkey and Knox. That brings the total number of players to 21 for the class and the Bruins have only a few rides left to give out. The final targets are probably another lineman and possibly a defensive tackle. I'm sure the staff will keep a few slots available for the final big targets in the class.

These commitments are good, but I'm a little worried that Dorrell won't go after Scott. We need top level players at the skill positions, especially RB. Also, any info on the recruitment of Ethan Johnson?

Dorrell and the staff have been going after Scott, don't worry about that. The problem is that Scott is the top running back in the country and everybody and their Mom is recruiting him. I would rather land a great athlete like Knox, who is very high on the Bruins, than hope for an outside shot at landing Scott. Knox is also going to try and recruit other top-tier players to UCLA, so that makes him even more valuable to the team.
