UCLA target Ricky Heimuli opts for Oregon

2/3/2010

Highly touted defensive tackle prospect Ricky Heimuli (Salt Lake City, Utah/Brighton) chose Oregon over UCLA live on ESPNU.

Cue to the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Heimuli, who has the skill set to play right away, had been a top priority for coach Rick Neuheisel, especially following the early departure of top NFL prospect Brian Price.

The blow only heightens the Bruins' need for the nation's No. 2 defensive end, Owamagbe Odighizuwa (Portland, Oreg./David Douglas). He will announce his decision live on ESPNU's signing day show shortly.
