Cornerback Quentin Lake -- son of UCLA great Carnell Lake -- commits to Bruins

By

Quentin Lake, a cornerback from Santa Ana (Mater Dei, Calif.), will remain in Southern California after committing to UCLA on Wednesday. He announced his decision on Twitter.

The son of former NFL Pro Bowler Carnell Lake will follow his dad’s path as a Bruin. Carnell Lake is still UCLA’s career leader in tackles for loss and is fourth in sacks.

“UCLA was always the school I heard about growing up,” Lake told Scout.com. “I grew up hearing stories about my dad (Carnell Lake) and watching old film on him, I’ve always been brought up around the atmosphere of being a Bruin.

Lake, ranked among the top 10 corners in the West, chose the Bruins over USC, Oregon State and Pitt among others.

His performance at the Bruin Elite Camp convinced UCLA coaches to offer him a scholarship.

At 6-1, 175, he also has the ability to play multiple positions, which makes him an attractive prospect.

Mater Dei opens the season at No. 14 in the Preseason Super 25 rankings.
