Announcement Schedule for Signing Day

TE Chris Clark (6'6, 247) No. 1 TE, No. 23 Overall
Clark just visited UCLA, and is thought to have been wowed by the experience. He'll choose between Michigan and UCLA on Signing Day, and the thinking is that if Signing Day were today, he'd be a Bruin.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 5:35 a.m. ESPNU


RB Sotonye Jamabo (6'2.5, 203) No. 1 RB, No. 18 Overall
UCLA was thought to be the leader heading into his official visit to Texas this past weekend, but if QB prospect Kyler Murray ends up flipping to the Longhorns from Texas A&M, the thinking is that Jamabo may follow. Landing Jamabo would be a huge coup for UCLA, and it still looks like a realistic possibility.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 6:20 a.m. ESPNU


MLB Roquan Smith (6'1, 209) No. 1 MLB, No. 62 Overall
Smith has had UCLA in his top group for his entire recruitment, but prying him away from the South could prove to be a tall order. His top three is Georgia, Michigan, and UCLA, but Georgia is the prohibitive favorite to land him.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 8:20 a.m. ESPNU


OG Josh Wariboko (6'3, 305) No. 10 OG, No. 163 Overall
Wariboko has publicly listed Ohio State as his leader, but privately it's thought that UCLA is in the lead. He'll choose between those two schools and Oklahoma.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 8:05 a.m. ESPNU

DE Cassius Peat (6'4, 235) No. 16 DE, No. 166 Overall
Peat is verbally committed to UCLA, but has flirted with ASU and Michigan State. It's expected he'll sign with UCLA.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 1:00 p.m., at high school


WR Cordell Broadus (6'2.5, 192) No. 42 WR
UCLA is just recently getting involved with the receiver again, who previously was thought to be leaning toward Arizona State. It's impossible to handicap this recruitment at this point.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 11:35 a.m. ESPNU


S Nathan Meadors (6'2, 180) No. 62 Safety
UCLA is in the top three with Notre Dame and Oregon, and is considered the favorite heading into the official visit this weekend.

Announcement Date: National Signing Day, 1:00 p.m. Prime Ticket


DE Joseph Wicker (6'2, 275) No. 11 DT, No. 93 Overall
Wicker has never been on UCLA's campus, and it's thought his official this weekend could seal the deal. He'll choose between UCLA, Arizona State, and Texas Tech, but the Bruins are thought to be the favorite.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 1:10 p.m. ESPNU

Other commitment announcements to watch:

CB Iman Marshall (6'2, 195) No. 1 CB, No. 7 Overall
Marshall is almost certainly going to commit to USC on Signing Day.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th, 1:05 p.m. ESPNU

OG Semisi Uluave (6'5, 320) No. 14 OG, No. 277 Overall
UCLA is no longer recruiting Uluave, but the word is that the Bruins will send him an NLI, and if he signs it, they'll take him since he plans on taking his Mormon mission directly out of high school.

Announcement Date: Signing Day, Feb. 4th

DE Tyrone Wheatley (6'6.5, 270) No. 25 DE, No. 279 Overall
UCLA is in the top five with USC, Oregon, Alabama, and Michigan, and it was thought that it could come down to the two L.A. schools, but with his dad now coaching at Michigan, it's difficult to say where he'll end up.

Announcement Date: National Signing Day, 12:15 p.m., at high school




Commits UCLA Could Flip

OG Maea Teuhema (6'5, 346) No. 1 OG, No. 42 Overall COMMITTED TO LSU
Teuhema, who committed to LSU with his older brother last Signing Day, visited UCLA this past weekend, and the word is that the Bruins have a good chance of landing the talented guard. Jan. 30th -- We're hearing it's now more likely he sticks with LSU. For more info on the situation, go here.

WR Tony Brown (6'1, 170) No. 30 WR, No. 216 Overall COMMITTED TO TEXAS TECH
Brown committed to Texas Tech after not feeling a great deal of love from UCLA, but the Bruins have turned up the heat, tripping Brown in during January and making him feel at home. This is one to watch down the stretch.




UCLA Commits Who Could Flip

LB Victor Alexander (5'10, 220) No. 22 MLB
He was committed to UCLA for a very long time, then flipped to Georgia Tech a couple of days ago and then flipped back to UCLA. There could be more flipping before Wednesday.

DE Cassius Peat (6'4, 235) No. 16 DE, No. 166 Overall
Peat has felt consistent pressure from hometown ASU since he committed, but we've heard more and more that he's solid to UCLA. Still, this is one to watch over the last week.

WR Ryan Newsome (5'8, 168) No. 26 WR, No. 193 Overall
Newsome committed to UCLA over hometown Texas in an emotional ceremony just last week, but we have to imagine Texas won't give up easily. We'd anticipate Newsome signing with UCLA, but it could be an interesting week leading up to Signing Day.




Trend Meter for Remaining UCLA Targets -- This is our latest take on which way the stock is going in terms of UCLA getting a commitment from the targets still left on the board.
