UCLA continues to make splashes on the JUCO recruiting trail, especially in regard to the top offensive linemen.

The latest star JUCO offensive lineman to commit to Jim Mora's program is another big one, in 6'6'', 300-pound 4-star offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor.

Justin Hopkins of 247Sports reported the commitment via his Twitter account:

According to the 247Sports exclusive rankings, Eluemunor is the No. 1 JUCO offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 2 JUCO recruit, only behind 5-star wideout D'haquille Williams

The 247Sports composite rankings feature a slightly different story, with Eluemunor checking in as the No. 2 JUCO offensive tackle in the class and the No. 3 ranked JUCO player.

The kicker is, the player that passed him in both rankings is 4-star Dominick Jackson, who actually committed to UCLA last week.

Either way you look at it then, UCLA has landed the top two JUCO offensive tackle recruits in the 2014 class, and that's a huge statement for Jim Mora, his staff and UCLA recruiting in general.

Eluemunor obviously has great size, but he can also move. For as big as he is, he can get out of his stance to get to linebackers at the second level, and he does a good job of utilizing angles and leverage to his advantage to wall off defenders. He also has a solid base, quick feet and a solid shuffle in pass protection.

He has the potential to be a good college lineman, and his lofty rankings back that statement up.
