Class of 2024 Linebacker Brayden Platt Lists UCLA Football in Top 8
Two months after sending Platt an offer, the Bruins were included as a semifinalist alongside USC, Oregon, Michigan and others.
Excerpt from Fan Nation, Part of the Sports Illustrated Network:
The [UCLA] Bruins are officially in the running for one of the West’s top two-way players.
Class of 2024 linebacker and running back Brayden Platt revealed his top eight contenders Tuesday, and the Yelm (WA) product included UCLA football on the list. Joining the Bruins among Platt’s semifinalists are Miami (FL), Michigan, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Oregon and USC.
Platt had additional offers from Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, Cal, Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Utah, Washington and Washington State, and while he said his recruitment remains open, those schools appear to be out of the running for the time being.
Platt played in seven games for Yelm last fall, recording 41 tackles, 5.0 tackles for loss and 1.0 sack. On the other side of the ball, Platt rushed for 765 yards and 18 touchdowns while adding 160 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown en route to a state title for Yelm.
Just before he accepted an invitation to the All-American Bowl, Platt showed out at the ESPN300 camp in Northern California last spring. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound prospect is also an elite track and field athlete.
Platt is a four-star recruit, according to 247Sports and ESPN, but Rivals and On3 have him pegged as a three-star recruit. In the 247Sports Composite, Platt is ranked as the No. 5 player in Washington, the No. 24 linebacker is the country and the No. 262 overall prospect in his class.
