Let's get back to our off season mixed bag roundup and notes. Let's start with football. I think it has already been mentioned in the comment thread that Dorrell picked up two more commitments: OL Jeff Baca and running back Derrick Coleman (Troy High of Fullerton).

We hope they find their UCLA experience rewarding, getting a great educations, while hopefully getting to play in a program that wins and competes for Pac-10 championships year after year.
