UCLA has landed a running back … or is he a wide receiver?

Jalen Ortiz, who played at Peoria (Ariz.) Centennial High School, has signed a letter of intent to play for the Bruins.

GRAPHIC: UCLA recruits

Ortiz played running back at Centennial, where he was a two-time 1,000-yard rusher. UCLA Coach Jim Mora called Ortiz a “WR” in a Twitter post.

So which is he? Details to be hashed out. At either spot, Ortiz has 4.55 speed in the 40.
