The younger brother of an NFL tight end announced his college commitment on Friday night. Charles Njoku, the younger brother of former Miami star and current Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, took to Twitter on Friday night to reveal where he's playing his college football.

Instead of following in his brother's footsteps and taking his talents to Miami, Njoku will be going across the country to join Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins. The three-star wideout from New Jersey was committed to the Missouri Tigers before he eventually decided against heading to the SEC.

Now he's headed to the Pac-12.

"Appreciated the journey but my story isn’t finished yet. COMMITTED...all glory to god," Njoku said in a video he posted revealing his commitment.

Njoku was one of the fastest-rising recruits in the country over the past few months. In November he was the No. 75 wide receiver recruit in the country, but now sits at No. 51, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

In the weeks leading up to Njoku's decision, UCLA emerged as the favorite, beating out Scott Frost and the Nebraska Cornhuskers who hoped to land the big-bodied wide receiver.

Charles is a higher-ranked recruit than his brother was coming out of high school and has a similar frame. David went on to become a first-round pick by the Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft.
