4-star QB Madden Iamaleava commits to UCLA

UCLA is adding four-star quarterback Madden Iamaleava to its 2025 recruiting class.

Iamaleava plays at Warren High School in Downey, Calif., about 30 miles from the UCLA campus, where he threw for 3,626 yards and 43 touchdowns in 13 games in his junior season.

The 247Sports composite ranks him as the No. 11 quarterback in the nation.

Iamaleava told 247Sports that UCLA and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy had a leg up in his recruiting, despite a late offer from Oregon and offers from programs including Auburn and Washington.

“UCLA was my childhood favorite school,” Iamaleava told the outlet. “I love the new staff and fit the offense really well. Eric Bieniemy recruited me really hard and spent a lot of time with me getting to know me as a person, not just as a QB.

“He’s a great offensive mind and someone I know I can learn a lot from. He’s worked with some great QBs in the past and I think he can help me get to the next level and that’s always the dream.”

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Iamaleava is the younger brother of Nico Iamaleava, the projected starting quarterback at Tennessee.
