Four-star cornerback Jordan Parker decommitted from the UCLA Bruins.

The UCLA Bruins 2016 recruiting class took a slight hit when 2016 cornerback Jordan Parker (Pittsburg, CA .Pittsburg Senior) decommitted from the program Wednesday. He made the announcement via Twitter.

Parker is the No. 149 player in the class of 2016, the No. 13 cornerback, and the No. 24 player from the state of California per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

He was recruited heavily out west as he accumulated six offers with Arizona, California, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, and Washington all vying for his services. He made the oral commitment to UCLA in April.

He was still unsure about his commitment to the Bruins last week at The Opening, as he told Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times that his commitment was anything but certain. When asked if there was a possibility that he could flip his commitment, Parker said, “There could be a possibility.”

Parker told Thiry that Oklahoma and USC have continued to recruit him.

Currently, the UCLA ’16 troop ranks No. 18 in the country and No. 4 in the Pac-12 per the 247Sports Team Rankings. The class currently has 18 commitments.

UCLA could have used his physical style of play in their secondary. At 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, he is not the tallest corner, but he compensates for his size by getting in the face of his man and being physical both on and off the ball.

The Bruins should be fine at the position as four-star cornerback Colin Samuel, and three-star cornerbacks Octavias Spencer and Will Lockett have signed their letters of intent for the class of 2015. However, anytime you lose out on a premiere prospect like Parker, there has to be a feeling of disappointment.
