UCLA Recruits in the All-American Games

We take a look at where UCLA's commits and recruits will be playing in the All-American Games..

The three major high school national All-America games are this week.

UCLA has commits in each of the big three games around the country.

Here is a look at three All-American Games, the date, time and television of each game, and the UCLA recruits in each of them.

. 2015 UnderArmour All-America Game
Friday, January 2nd - Tropicana Dome - St. Petersburg, Fla. - 1 p.m. PT - ESPN

Commits

C Fred Ulu-Perry, Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis
The country's No. 1 center prospect and one of three Hawaiians selected to the UnderArmour All-America Game, Ulu-Perry has done nothing but shine on the big stage over the last year. He was the OL MVP at the Los Angeles NFTC and then was on the All-Lineman team at The Opening and vaulted in to the top spot at center nationally. Ulu-Perry will try to cement himself there while recruiting for the Bruins.

QB Josh Rosen, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
The nation's top quarterback prospect was invited to the UnderArmour Game, but nursing some late season dings, will sit out the game and enroll at UCLA just days after the game.

Targets

OL Josh Wariboko, Oklahoma City (Okla.) Casady
One of UCLA's primary offensive line targets the entire recruiting cycle, Wariboko visited UCLA for the USC game and the Bruin coaches were in his house twice in the weeks following. Update: Wariboko was supposed to announce at the game but has put it back until February 2nd. It was thought he'd announce for UCLA so a postponement of that is not a great sign for the Bruins.

CB Iman Marshall, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly
The No. 1 defensive back prospect in the West, Marshall is likely headed to USC, but UCLA hasn't stopped trying with him. He won't be announcing his decision for a while still, but UCLA is hoping to use January to pull off the upset.

RB Sotonye Jamabo, Plano (Texas) West
Another out-of-state prospect the Bruins are doing exceptionally well with. Jamabo will likely not decide in Florida, still likely to take trips to the in-state schools in January, but the Bruins are very much on the short list, and could be considered the favorite for the nation's No. 1 running back.

TE Chris Clark, Avon (Conn.) Old Farms
And yet another top-ranked prospect at his position the Bruins are doing well with, Clark will be at the UnderArmour Game and then two weeks later will visit UCLA officially and the Bruins are doing well with him, but are not likely to get any real indicator of him committing until the Alize situation gets sqaured away.

LB Jeff Holland, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy
Holland has been on UCLA's short list for over a year, and while they have a commitment from teammate Victor Alexander, they would love to get Holland to join him. He'll visit two weeks after the UnderArmour Game.

LB Roquan Smith, Macon County (Ga.) Montezuma
It could be UCLA and Smith are cooling a bit on each other, with Smith visiting USC and potentially visiting UCLA, but not the slam dunk it had appeared to be.

OL Maea Teuhema, Keller (Texas)
A long time commit to LSU, UCLA will get a visit out of Teuhema in January and the Bruins would love to flip him and we've heard that Ulu-Perry plans to be all over him in Orlando to get him to join the mix.

WR Ray-Ray McCloud, Tampa (Fla.) Sickles
McCloud committed to Clemson during the summer, but since then, Clemson's offensive coordinator Chad Morris left for the SMU job and Florida, the other finalist besides UCLA, made a coaching change. There is a chance he'll visit in January.

RB Paul Lucas, Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe
Lucas was supposed to visit UCLA for the USC game but that didn't happen. He still may visit in January but grades could keep that from realistically happening.

WR Cordell Broadus, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman
UCLA's recruitment of Broadus has been discussed ad nauseum. But if UCLA strikes out on some more receiver targets, there still may be a chance they revisit Broadus.

2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl
Saturday, January 3rd - Alamodome - San Antonio, Texas - 10 a.m. PT - NBC

Commits

OLB Keisean Lucier-South, Orange (Calif.) Lutheran
Lucier-South is UCLA's most solid commit in this game and he said when he committed to the Bruins that he planned to do a lot of recruiting for the Bruins. What will be interesting during the week is to see where KLS lines up- as either an end, his more natural positions or at outside linebacker, where he projects in college.

TE Alize Jones, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman
We can envision it now, Jones will change his Twitter picture to his Army uniform and folks will either freak out he's going to play at West Point or that he's bypassing college to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Anyhow, Jones has visited Notre Dame but has publicly said (when he's talked), that he's still committed to UCLA. The Bruins are expecting him to visit in January and if he takes that visit, that could, but likely won't, calm folks down.

Targets

CB Dechaun Holiday, San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills
There was always a possibility of Holiday announcing his decision at the Army Bowl but since he's still yet to take any official visits, its very unlikely he'll announce in San Antonio. Still, UCLA feels very good about Holiday and the Bruins have long been high on his list.

DL Joseph Wicker, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly
Wicker still has one official visit left, and it will all but assuredly be to UCLA in January. The Bruins have been on the short list for Wicker since he was offered, even with his delay in taking a visit. He's one of the players that KLS plans to recruit in San Antonio.

OLB Osa Masina, Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton
The Bruins have done everything they can to recruit Masina and would love to get him to announce during the game for them, but USC has been in a good spot for him since he took his official visit there at the end of November.

DL Rasheem Green, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Like we said in the defensive recruiting reset, UCLA wasn't on Green's top four (final four?) last week and its a longshot that the Bruins will get him, but they've continued to recruit him.

2015 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl
Sunday, January 4th - StubHub Center - Carson, Calif - 6 p.m. PT - FOX Sports 1

Commits

OL Tevita Halalilo, Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde
One of UCLA's longest-standing commits in the 2015 class, Halalilo shut down his recruitment in the spring when he verbaled to the Bruins and hasn't wavered one bit since then and was frequently at UCLA games. Of all of UCLA's commits playing in an All-America game, he may be the most solid.

Targets

DE Benning Potoae, Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes
The top defensive prospect in the state of Washington, the four-star named a top two of homestate Washington, where his older brother Sione played, and UCLA, where Mike Tuiasosopo has done a very good job of recruiting him. Potoae visited for the USC game and will visit Washington two weeks after the Semper Fi Bowl and make his decision in the days following.

DE Tyrone Wheatley, Buffalo (N.Y.) Canisius
Wheatley is set to visit UCLA next month officially, and the Bruins are recruiting him almost as a jumbo athlete, both as a defensive end and would also give him a shot as a tight end. This will be his second trip to Los Angeles in a couple weeks, with a visit to USC the first just before the dead period started and then he'll be back a couple weeks later to visit UCLA officially. The Bruins will be one of his three January visits, with Alabama and Oregon the other two.

WR Carlos Strickland, Dallas (Tex.) Skyline
Strickland plans to visit UCLA in January, even though he's verbally committed to Texas Tech. He was a late add to the Semper Fi game, which gives him another chance to visit UCLA's campus, even though it's a dead period and he can't meet with any coaches.

DB Prentice McKinney, Dallas (Texas) South Oak Cliff
McKinney, a Notre Dame commit, said he would visit UCLA next month but we've also heard from some sources close to his recruitment it may be more for a trip to Los Angeles than because of sincere interest in the Bruins, so we'll see if that visit even happens.

WR C.J. Sanders, Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame
Sanders is another Notre Dame commit that the Bruins are after, but he's been a longtime Notre Dame commit and hasn't appeared to waver. The only thing UCLA has going for them is its proximity to home. The Bruins could really turn the heat up with Sanders in January and would love to get him on campus for an official visit and hope they can flip him. They've done that with Notre Dame commits in the past.
