Get ready college football fans — and USC head coach Lane Kiffin. You’re going to have to learn a name much tougher to pronounce than Nebraska’s Heisman finalist Ndamukong Suh.

The second-ranked DE by ESPN.com, Owamagbe Odighizuwa, has elected to play college football at UCLA, joining an already strong Bruins class.

The 6-3, 235-pounder from Portland, Ore. signed a letter of intent with UCLA after also seriously considering Oregon State and Nebraska.

The tall and rangy game-changing defensive lineman was thought to be leaning toward the Cornhuskers after the school grabbed DB Corey Cooper, who chose to go to Lincoln instead of Notre Dame, Arizona or Illinois.

Instead, it's UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel and Bruins fans who are the winners in the Odighizuwa sweepstakes.
