Early Look 2015: Offers on Offense

We take an early look at the prospects on offense UCLA has offered for 2015, in what should be a strong class locally and nationally, especially at quarterback...

The 2015 class will not just be strong nationally, but it may be one of the best classes locally in several years.  The quarterback position is particularly strong, with several prospects UCLA is high on, but hasn't offered, already on the radar.  The receiver class should also be fairly strong and UCLA is already in early on several top prospects.

NOTE: This list is just 2015 prospects we know that UCLA has offered.  Later this month, we'll go more in-depth with some other 2015 prospects they are recruiting.


UCLA has offered three in-state quarterbacks already and two national quarterbacks.  It's clear, though, that Rosen and Town are their top two targets.  Johnson is committed to Florida State, while Perkins, the younger brother of Bruin running back Paul, and Dillman, will be entering their first seasons as the starters for their respective programs.  They were both offered early but neither have much experience.  Meanwhile, Rosen and Town are arguably the top two quarterbacks in the country, with Town offered early by the Bruins and Rosen offered in June.

Josh Rosen, 6-3, 195, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
Ricky Town, 6-4, 205, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure
Bryce Perkins, 6-3, 180, Chandler (Ariz.)
Kevin Dillman, 6-4, 205, La Mirada (Calif.)
DeAndre Johnson, Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast


So far, it's not a great running back class out West, with both of the players UCLA has offered being more of the Damien Thigpen-variety than the Johnathan Franklin/Craig Lee mold.  McClatcher could end up in the slot in college or corner while Roberson, who has elite speed, suffered a torn ACL in the spring and will likely miss the entire season.  Brossette was offered by UCLA last year and will be one of the elite prospects nationally. He has some ties to the Southland.

Chico McClatcher, 5-7, 150, Federal Way (Wash.)
Malik Roberson, 5-7, 160, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Nicholas Brossette, 6-0, 210, Baton Rouge (La.) LSU Labratory School
Taj Griffin, 5-9, 170 Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern
Jacques Patrick,6-1, 210, Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek
Jordan Scarlett, 5-11, 195, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University
Chris Warren, 6-2, 220, Rockwall (Texas)


UCLA offered the four Western receivers all in 2012 when they were coming off their freshman seasons, thinking very highly of them early on.  Kirk's first offer was from UCLA and he may be the best receiver in the region in 2015. Broadus is potentially the top receiver in California.  The two Holmeses are cousins, with Darick a running back/slot and Desean more of a pure receiver of the two.  Campbell committed to Michigan last week.

Christian Kirk, 5-10, 175, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro
Cordell Broadus, 6-1, 185, Diamond Bar (Calif.)
Darick Holmes, 5-10, 175, Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian
Desean Holmes, 5-11, 170, Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany
Tyron Johnson, 6-2, 190, New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton
George Campbell, 6-5, 181, Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake


UCLA is in early on the top tight end in the West, and possibly the country, in Jones.  His first offer, in fact, was from UCLA.  He camped with UCLA in June and was terrific, showing that he was easily the best tight end there. After a great Los Angeles NFTC, he showed he's the top tight end in the region and potentially the country.

Alize Jones, 6-4.5, 215, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman


The offensive line class out West isn't particularly strong in 2015 so far, with Okun probably the top in-state lineman right now, projecting to guard.  Walker was offered by UCLA a while back, and is a definite target of UCLA while the others are all elite national prospects.  Rogers already has committed to Arkansas.

Zach Okun, OG, 6-4, 303, Newbury Park (Calif.)
Keenan Walker, OT, 6-6, 260, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral
Kyonta Stallworth, OG, 6-4, 265, Eastpointe (Mich.) South Lake
Drew Richmond, OT, 6-5.5, 305, Memphis (Tenn.) University
Mitch Hyatt, OT, 6-6, 265, Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett
George Brown, OT, 6-6, 253, Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods
Zach Rogers, C, 6-3, 295, Lewisville (Texas) Hebron
