Michigan is still looking for a quarterback in its 2018 class and it won't be Dorian Thompson-Robinson.

The 2018 four-star quarterback from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas announced his commitment to UCLA via Twitter on Sunday night. That came one week after he named a final two of Michigan and UCLA.

"It's really a perfect fit for anyone that wants to have the best college experience," Thompson-Robinson told USA TODAY. "It's in California, it's probably in one of the nicest areas of Los Angeles. And a degree from UCLA is going to set you up for life."

At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, Thompson-Robinson is the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback and No. 36 player overall in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. He visited Michigan for last Saturday's spring game with his mom, Dr. Melva Thompson-Robinson, a Michigan graduate and a professor at UNLV.

Despite being the highest-ranked uncommitted quarterback in the 2018 class prior to Sunday, Thompson-Robinson is entering his first season starting at the position at the varsity level. He spent last season backing up Tate Martell, who signed with Ohio State in February, and also played wide receiver. Thompson-Robinson was 21-for-31 passing for 269 yards and three touchdowns, had 22 receptions for 397 yards and eight touchdowns and 22 carries for 171 yards and six touchdowns.
