Early Reset 2015: Offers on Offense

With the focus shifting to the 2015 class coming in just six weeks, we reset who UCLA has offered on offense in the early going...

UCLA should have a very limited amount of scholarships to give in 2015, with only a handful of current juniors. UCLA will have to be considerably more selective for 2015, while having to find some scholarships here and there.

Here's a breakdown of scholarships available for 2015.

UCLA will want to find a good amount of rides, since the 2015 class is not just strong nationally, but it may be one of the best classes locally in several years.  The quarterback position is particularly strong, with the prospect that may end up being the top quarterback prospect nationally, Rosen, being a UCLA lean right now  The receiver class should also be fairly strong and UCLA is already in early on several top prospects as well as a rising offensive line class.

NOTE: This list is just 2015 prospects we know that UCLA has offered.  And Others to Watch includes prospects we know are high on their board.

**Rankings are by position nationally.**

QUARTERBACK

UCLA is doing very well with Rosen, and is probably the leader right now.  They've offered a couple of West Coast prospects too but more as athletes (i.e., Perkins and Dillman).  They'll also continue to watch the other West Coast prospects they haven't offered, but clearly, Rosen is the top quarterback on their board.

Josh Rosen, 6-3, 195, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, #2
Brian Lewerke, 6-3, 180, Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle
Chason Virgil, 6-0, 170, West Mesquite (Texas)
Bryce Perkins, 6-3, 180, Chandler (Ariz.), #35
Kevin Dillman, 6-4, 205, La Mirada (Calif.), #21
DeAndre Johnson, 6-0, 170, Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast, #31
Blake Barnett, 6-4, 200, Corona (Calif.) Santiago, #26 (Notre Dame commit)
Ricky Town, 6-4, 205, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure, #1 (Alabama commit)

Others To Watch
Brady White, 6-2, 180, Newhall (Calif.) Hart, #5
Sheriron Jones, 6-2, 185, Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde, #18
Jake Browning, 6-3, 185, Folsom (Calif.)
Brett Rypien, 6-2, 185, Spokane (Wash.) Shadle Park, #11
 

RUNNING BACK

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 missed the entire season.  This continues to make the 2014 running back target of Joe Mixon that much more important to get into the mix.

Chico McClatcher, 5-7, 150, Federal Way (Wash.), #24
Malik Roberson, 5-7, 160, Gardena (Calif.) Serra, #27
Taj Griffin, 5-9, 170 Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern, #6
Ray McCloud, 5-10, 175, Tampa (Fla.) Sickles
Jacques Patrick,6-1, 210, Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek, #10
Jordan Scarlett, 5-11, 195, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University, #4
Chris Warren, 6-2, 220, Rockwall (Texas), #12
Nicholas Brossette, 6-0, 210, Baton Rouge (La.) LSU Labratory School, #9 (LSU commit)

Others To Watch
Marcus Chambers, 5-10.5, 185, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure
Charles West, 5-10, 190, Coppell (Texas)
Bryce Love, 5-10, 180, Wake Forest (N.C.), #35

WIDE RECEIVER

UCLA offered four 2015 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. They offered Broadus going into the fall of his sophomore season as well as the Holmes' cousins.  Since then, they've offered a few more from Northern California.  Reed's teammate, Alex Van Dyke, is committed to UCLA and the Bruins have done well there in the past and Langley's coach and Angus McClure have a long history.  Lovette is one of the newer offers out.

Christian Kirk, 5-10, 175, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro, #3
L.J. Reed, 6-3, 200, Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks, #18
Isaiah Langley, 6-0, 165, Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill, #26
Malik Lovette, 5-11, 175, Redlands (Calif.) East Valley
Cordell Broadus, 6-1, 185, Diamond Bar (Calif.), #7
Darick Holmes, 5-10, 175, Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian

Jaylinn Hawkins, 6-1, 165, Buena Park (Calif.), #10
Kyle Sweet, 6-1, 175, Santa Margarita (Calif.)
Lavan Alston, 5-11, 170, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure, #39
 

TIGHT END/Y

UCLA has a commitment from the top tight end in the country in Jones.  He was offered by UCLA last spring, and had double-digit offers but then committed to UCLA last month when he took an unofficial visit.  With UCLA doing well with Bryce Dixon in the 2014 class and having a commitment from Jones, he is likely their only target at the position.

Alize Jones, 6-4.5, 215, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman, #1 COMMITTED

OFFENSIVE LINE

The offensive line class out West didn't look particularly strong going into the season, but this year has allowed several to emerge, including James, who took an unofficial for the Washington game, Robertson, part of a large contingent of elite prospects at St. John Bosco and Roberts, who they offered out of Myles Jack's alma mater.
