Last year, UCLA had three future signees in the game. In fact, two of them announced their college decisions at the game. For Cal.
And Ishmael Adams, who played early this year before injuring a shoulder, had an interception in the game and was named Defensive MVP of the Army Bowl.
This year, UCLA has two commits playing, though the Bruins will have to weather their recruitments in the month of January.
Memphis (Tenn.) East offensive tackle Christian Morris will play for the East while Bellevue (Wash.) linebacker Myles Jack will play for the West. Those two committed to the Bruins in the summer, but both will be taking official visits in January, and have already taken some official visits elsewhere.
One of UCLA's chief targets, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) safety Tahaan Goodman, is in the game, playing for the West, and UCLA is doing really well with him right now. He has said he could at the game, but could will likely wait until he finishes some visits in January.
Of course, UCLA's biggest fish out there, Auburn (Calif.) Placer defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, the USC commit who tripped to UCLA in November, and who the Bruins are still working on, will be playing for the West, one of double-digit USC commits in the game.
