Charles Njoku had Nebraska as his top school before his final recruiting visit.

That trip, to UCLA, changed his mind.

So the 6-foot-5, 200-pound receiver from Wayne (N.J.) Hills told Husker and Bruin coaches this week he was headed to the Pac-12. Friday night, he officially announced his decision.

Nebraska’s search for a big-bodied wide receiver continues.

“UCLA has a great atmosphere,” Njoku said. “And there are good connections for after school.”

UCLA didn’t offer a scholarship to Njoku until his official visit on Jan. 18, one week after his official visit to Nebraska.

“I felt more comfortable there,” Njoku said.
