Pacifica LB Devin Aupiu commits to UCLA

The three-star linebacker, who is 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, joins Alemany receiver DJ Justice as the Bruins’ second commit of the 2021 class.

UCLA received its second football recruit commitment of the 2021 class Friday afternoon when three-star outside linebacker Devin Aupiu announced his commitment to the Bruins via Twitter.

“I have dreamed about this day ever since I was little. It took lots of hard work and support from my family and friends to get to this position,” Aupiu tweeted.

At 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, the Oxnard native chose UCLA over offers from Arizona State, California, Kansas and Oregon State. According to, Aupiu has racked up 112 total tackles, 19.0 sacks and three forced fumbles over his previous two years on the Pacifica High School’s varsity squad.

Aupiu is the second hard commit for the Bruins’ 2021 class as he joins Bishop Alemany High (Mission Hills) wide receiver DJ Justice.
