With two days before National Signing Day, tight end David Priebe announced a late change of heart, flipping his commitment from SMU to UCLA on Monday.

The three-star tight end had been committed to SMU since June, originally choosing the Mustangs over other in-state options like Baylor and Houston.

He is UCLA’s second tight end in a recruiting class that now stands as 23 players, joining Matt Alaimo, a three-star prospect from New Jersey. The Bruins are already stacked at tight end with redshirt sophomore Caleb Wilson returning from injury and Devin Asiasi, who is now eligible after sitting out due to NCAA transfer rules. UCLA also has Jordan Wilson, Moses Robinson-Carr and Jimmy Jaggers at the position.

Priebe, a 6-foot-6, 212-pound recruit, had 15 catches for 183 yards and three touchdowns last year.
