UCLA Football QB Recruiting More Dire as Williams Enrolls at UW

New, 60 comments

UCLA needs to sign a QB for the 2013 recruiting class and that task just got more difficult as one of the best QBs in the west, Troy Williams, enrolled early at Washington.

The starting quarterback situation is in fairly good hands with Brett Hundley, but the depth at the position is a bit troubling. We had hoped that Mazzone and the rest of the recruiting staff might be able to work on Troy Williams and flip him before signing day, but that hope is now gone, as Williams has signed scholarship papers with UW and will enroll early with the Huskies.

Troy Williams, a quarterback from Narbonne High School in Harbor City, Calif., has been committed to Washington since June.

Earlier this week, though, he made it official, signing scholarship papers with UW. He will arrive in Seattle Saturday and enroll in classes Monday, becoming the first official member of the Class of 2013.

With that development, the Bruins' need for QB depth becomes even more pressing. Hayden Rettig is the other prominent SoCal QB, but appears firmly committed to LSU, unless the coaches can work some magic. The staff really needs to consider pressing on a three-star type who can develop into a Pac-12 level quarterback. UCLA really needs depth at the position with Kevin Prince and Richard Brehaut out of eligibility while Jerry Neuheisel and T.J. Millweard have yet to take any game snaps. Devin Fuller will compete at the position during spring ball, but is expected to stay at receiver.
