New, 9 comments

Eight of UCLA’s eleven commits signed yesterday.

With eight of UCLA’s 11 commits signing yesterday, expect today to be a lot quieter.

But, that doesn’t mean that there may not be a few surprises, even though I wouldn’t hold my breath.

UCLA’s best chance of adding another guy before the Early Signing Period closes could be Braden Lenzy, a 4-star ATH from Tigard High School, outside of Portland. Lenzy has wavered between Notre Dame and Oregon, having committed and decommitted with each school. That said, he isn’t scheduled to commit until tomorrow.

Of UCLA’s unsigned commits, Olaijah Griffin and Dorian Thompson-Robinson still plan to wait until February. Thompson-Robinson, apparently, just wants to enjoy the process and sign on the traditional National Signing Day while Griffin liked what he saw on his visit to Tennessee and could flip to the Volunteers.

That leaves just Mater Dei’s CJ Parks as the only other unsigned Bruin commit. Hopefully, he signs before the period closes.

Here’s how the 2018 recruiting class looks as of this morning.

Now is a good time to discuss the direction of this class. What needs does Chip Kelly and staff still need to fill? Who do you think can come in and compete for a starting job right away?
