Well, it is the day we have been waiting for. National Signing Day. As recruits make the important choice of where they will spend their college career, many fans will be shocked and/or excited tomorrow. UCLA has done an outstanding job recuiting this year, but it will be up to the recruits to choose UCLA. Without further ado, here are the final predictions for UCLA targets before National Signing Day.
Kenny Young, LB, New Orleans LA
It is pretty much down to LSU and UCLA for this talented linebacker, even though he has other schools in his top 5 for tomorrow. He has shown strong interest in UCLA's open linebacker spots, and he would fit nicely into Anthony Barr's former spot as an athletic pass rusher who can pack a punch. Snatching up a 4-star from LSU's backyard would prove that UCLA is a nationwide recruiting threat.
Malachi Dupre, WR, New Orleans LA
Dupre, teammate of Kenny Young, has set his top schools for tomorrow: Florida State, Alabama,UCLA, and LSU. It would be tempting to follow probable UCLA commit and teammate Kenny Young to Westwood, but LSU's historical program and history of unstoppable offenses would be too good to pass up for Dupre.
Solomon Thomas, DE, CA
A gifted defensive-end who is nearly unstoppable on defense, his top 3 include Stanford, UCLA, and Arkansas. UCLA is considered the dark horse, but hey, it is Signing Day, and many surprises usually occur.
