In case folks are not doing it, keep a close eye on who is staying and who is leaving for the NFL across town. These decisions will impact the overall expectations around UCLA football program in Jim Mora's first season as the head coach.
In last few days we have already had couple of developments. Trojan All American LT Matt Kalil is forgoing his senior season for a bigger payday in NFL. Defensive end Nick Perry is joining the draft party too. Obviously Matt Barkley hasn't made anything official yet. T.J. McDonald is also considering the jump.
If Barkley moves on, in our opinion UCLA will emerge as the obvious favorites to win the Pac-12 South and be in position for a great year in Mora's first year in Westwood.
