Ventura's Ebell Commits to UCLA

October 31, 2000

Ventura High running back Tyler Ebell has committed to UCLA.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior is on pace to break the state single-season rushing record. In eight games, Ebell has rushed for 2,737 yards and 39 touchdowns.

Ebell chose UCLA over Washington, Arizona, Oregon State and Brigham Young, among others.

"They recruited me pretty aggressively and they have one of the top recruiting classes in the nation," Ebell said of the Bruins. "I've always kind of liked them and their program."

Ebell, who is averaging more than 350 yards rushing per game, needs 850 yards to eclipse the state record set last season by former Kilpatrick running back Jermaine Marshall.
