Peyton Watson announced his commitment to UCLA on Monday.

Watson is the top-ranked player in California, and is No. 25 in ESPN's top 100 for the class of 2021.

Watson chose UCLA over Gonzaga, Washington, Arizona, Oregon and Michigan.

"I'm the No. 1 player in California, and I feel like UCLA is the original blue blood. It's hard to pass up an amazing school where my parents can see me play and have the support of my community behind me," Watson told ESPN.
