The college football world is abuzz with UCLA these days, a clear sign of expectations, exposure and reputation. Here are some news and notes for a busy May day!

Well it appears to be a busy month of May for the UCLA Football team, despite the absence of any sort of training camp.  But that's what happens when you have a Heisman candidate, high expectations, and a bunch of players who get drafted in the NFL.  Hopefully this is something to which we get accustomed as UCLA Football fans:  the attention that comes with being an elite program.  Anyway, here are some tidbits from around the internets.

As you have all seen by now, Brett Hundley was tabbed as the star in a UCLA Spring Sing video entitled "Brett Hundley: Campus Enforcer".  It's a hilarious video.  And if you haven't seen it yet, you can watch it on YahooCBS SportsBleacher ReportFox SportsSports IllustratedESPN, and yes, even NFL.com.  Just to name a few.  How long before Brett gets his own star on Hollywood Blvd?

Lest we overlook him, the LA Times also points to Brett's compadre in the video.  While they are not quite enamored with Brett's acting chops, it seems that as far as Luke Gane is concerned, a star is born...

With Spring camp now over, Kevin Gemmell has been giving his view on the breakout player for each team in the Pac-12.  His pick for UCLA is no other than Fabian Moreau, who has been garnering rave reviews from Coach Mora and many others.

As you have already learned, Myles Jack and Eric Kendricks were put on the watch list for the Lott Trophy.  On the other side of the ball, Jake Brendel was just named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, an award that goes to the nation's top collegiate center.  Adrian Klemm at work.

Just another reminder of the Anthony Barr story, which is as improbable as it is inspiring.

Some thoughts on where XSF is going to fit on the Houston Texans' offensive line.  Basically, he'll kill it, anywhere he plays.

The LA Times gives a recap of Coach Mora's charity golf tournament, which was well attended by celebrities and raised $500,000.  Really great to see our coach involved in these things.  Aside from the charity itself, maybe there were other incentives to get the guests to attend.  Just sayin'.

Well that's all folks!  Have a great Thursday.
