QB Dominoes Beginning to Fall

What direction will UCLA go in their quarterback recruiting as the commitment dominoes fall? We talk about who we think the Bruins could make their next, immediate targets...

As usual around this time of year, the quarterback dominoes are starting to fall.

Zach Kline and Connor Brewer are two of the best in the West, but their decisions were made a while ago.

But in the last two weeks, four Scout 300 quarterbacjs have committed, and two of them had UCLA offers.

Jeff Lindquist committed to hometown Washington, Bart Houston committed to Wisconsin, Travis Wilson choose Utah and Shane Dillon verballed to Colorado.

Wilson and Houston were both offered by UCLA.

So where does UCLA turn next?

It wouldn't be a surprised if they offer Denver (Colo.) Mullen quarterback Cyler Miles sooner, rather than later.

Miles has several offers from around the country, including Clemson, Arizona State, Illinois and Pittsburgh and while the Colorado native likes the Buffs, he may not want to be a second quarterback in that class (despite Colorado needing more quarterback depth).

The in-state one to watch is Jake Rodrigues from Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney.

Rodrigues has four offers, but three of those schools received commitments (Washington, Utah and Colorado) and while Michigan has offered, they're targeting a Midwest quarterback or two as their main priority.

He is a teammate of Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick too and he's likely going to camp at UCLA this spring. Rodrigues is a dual-threat quarterback, like Miles is, but has a better arm (he's not as mobile as Miles is though), and he's starred at just about every camp he's been to in the last year.

It will be interesting to see what direction quarterback recruiting takes now.

Yes, they've offered some out of state guys like Preston Dewey and Devin Fuller, but they'd probably like to bring in a quarterback close to home as well, if not exclusively..
