Former Baltimore Ravens left tackle Jonathan Ogden is considered by many to be one of the frontrunners for the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, the former UCLA Bruins standout learned he’s been inducted into another Hall of Fame.

Ogden, a four-year starter and one of the top offensive linemen to play at UCLA, was one of 14 selected for the College Football Hall of Fame, according to Chris Foster of The Los Angeles Times.

In 1995, Ogden’s final season for the Bruins, he won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation’s top lineman. He was also named a unanimous first-team All-American selection.

He was then drafted by the Ravens with the fourth overall pick in the 1996 draft and developed into one of the cornerstone pieces for the 2000 Super Bowl winning team. Ogden played 12 seasons for the Ravens, turning himself into one of the most dominant tackles ever. He was selected to 11 Pro Bowls and was a nine-time All-Pro selection.

Just one year after his retirement in 2007, Ogden was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.
