2019 Early Signing Period Day Two Will Likely Be Much Quieter for UCLA

Thirteen of UCLA’s fourteen recruits who committed before yesterday signed yesterday, but there were three surprises.

Today is probably going to be a much quieter day for UCLA football. That’s because almost all of the players who committed to the UCLA Bruins before yesterday signed yesterday morning. Only Mater Dei’s Michael Martinez has opted to wait until the traditional National Signing Day in February.

That doesn’t mean that the Bruins won’t have any additions to

day. It just makes it unlikely.

After all, UCLA did actually add three previously uncommitted guys to the recruiting class yesterday including one guy — Josh Carlin — who wasn’t even offered until yesterday.

So, it certainly seems possible that Chip Kelly and staff could add more guys today or tomorrow, even if it seems unlikely.

Here’s how the 2019 UCLA Football recruiting class looks as of this morning:

That’s still the same as yesterday afternoon, but we’re a full service website here at Bruins Nation and we try to avoid making you go through unnecessary clicks to get the info you’re looking for. That way, you know that you won’t have to keep clicking to find what you’re looking for or hoping to see!

That said, 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?

Personally, I’m excited about Bruin-born Chase Griffin coming in to compete for the starting quarterback job. Why? The kid is accurate as heck! Hopefully, he’ll at least help DTR improve his accuracy. Check out this video of Griffin which shows off his accuracy.
