Okay without going into a great deal of depth here is what i have been hearing.
Our DB class if signing day was today (10/10/12)
Before I name names… All of the coaches and especially coach meat (Demetrice Martin) has been hitting recruiting hard!! With that said, expect to hear a lot more of “kids from his region coming in for a visit”.
Jermaine Kelly: will be a fight with Yarber for this kid.
Johnnie Johnson: ND is making a push, remember his classmate and friend went to ND but later transferred.
Priest Willis: I have it on good authority that if he had to sign today, he would sign with UCLA, but I was told he will most likely wait til end of season and announce his decision on tv. If Priest decides to announce it earlier, it will be televised on espn.
L.J. Moore: The kid is loving the media attention just like a CB would. L.J. is in my opinion is an underrated 4 star, not saying he is a 5 star player but just saying he is higher 4 star caliber player… at least to me.
The last spot is up for grabs but I would take Daquwan Brown not because he went to my alma mater, but because he can ball…..
Mossi Johnson: Will be a fight with Yarber againg over this kid. He would play Jerry Johnson’s spot in our offense and is faster than Jordon Payton, who is currently in that spot now. I love Jordon so no slight on him.
Jayon Williams: Will end up in the rover spot so I added him to Ulbrich’s haul
Tyler Foreman: No inside info here on him. It just makes sense to me if he is looking at playing time and for a team on the rise, UCLA is the place to be. Plus, he has other Crespi guys on the squad now.
Hatari Byrd: I was told today 10/10/12 that coach meat is on Hatari. Now for those who know, you would also know the reason why he is going to Oklahoma. I wish him the best since he is a really good kid. I’m not certain if it is a grades thing but i truly believe we will hear of him de-commiting in Dec, and becoming a soft verbal. That is if what I am being told is true.
Donovan Munger: Getting him isn’t a pipe dream and that is all I will say about that. Well one thing I will say is that it is looking good with him!! However, for a kid from Ohio, it will be hard for him to say no if the Buckeyes came calling. Donovan wants to play on defense but Klemm is the one who is on this kid. Donovan is built like a OT with long arms, but I see more of an Alonzo Spellman type of long arm made for a DE/DT (just not as athletic as Alonzo…or as crazy).
Will be interesting few months (we need to keep winning!!!)
*Gwiz is a poster on BRO who I tremendously respect. Intermediately, he tends to drop information on the premium members about what he hears on the streets when it comes to UCLA recruiting. However, remember that just like every other information that involves UCLA athletics, the situation is very fluid and can change at any momment. DAMN YOU CHRIS BEAVER TOOTH PETERSEN FOR INGRAINING THE WORD “FLUID” INTO MY VOCABULARY!*
