Jordan Payton has signed with UCLA - his fourth Pac-12 school. The Oaks Christian receiver reneged on commitments to USC, Washington and Cal.



This one surprised a lot of people - and didn't surprise anybody at the same time.

In an almost unprecedented move, the Los Angeles times reports that Jordan Payton has signed with UCLA after being committed to three other Pac-12 schools.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound receiver originally committed to USC during his junior year. He later decommitted from USC and made a verbal pledge to Cal at the U.S. Army All-American Game.

Then on the eve of National Signing Day, Payton dropped Cal to verbally commit to Washington.

Less than 24 hours later, Payton has changed his mind again, choosing to sign with UCLA.

Payton made 61 catches for 769 yards 10 touchdowns. He also now owns the record for most verbal commitments to Pac-12 schools.
