UCLA Prospect Preview: Week Seven

Oct. 9 -- Check out where UCLA prospects will be playing this weekend throughout the country...

***Game of the Week:*** Gardena (Calif.) Serra vs. La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat

UCLA will have commits on both squads in this Mission League game. Bishop Amat has new UCLA commit Chris Gaston in the secondary along with USC commits Tyler Vaughns and Trevon Sidney. Despite some graduation losses, Serra is still pretty stacked and they're headlined by UCLA verbal Oluwole Betiku, still in only his second year of football this season. Besides Betiku, UCLA is after two-way athlete Brandon Burton too. The Cavs also feature USC commit C.J. Pollard and San Jose State commit Blake Walls at linebacker. Their top youngster is 2018 four-star Merlin Robertson.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola vs. Encino (Calif.) Crespi

Loyola boasts a pair of Pac-12 cornerbacks in Stanford commit David Long and UCLA target Myles Bryant opposite him. And Loyola's 2017 running back Drake Beasley was offered by UCLA this week. Crespi running back and UCLA commit Jalen Starks was cleared to play last week and returns from a shoulder injury that sidelined him the last couple of weeks, which will relieve the pressure on 2018 quarterback Hamish McClure, the son of UCLA defensive line coach Angus McClure. Crespi defensive end Marcus Moore, will lead the Celts defense.

West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade vs. Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany

Chaminade quarterback/receiver Dymond Lee, a UCLA commit, will lead the Eagles against a strong Alemany squad which features 2018 four-star quarterback Brevin White.

Long Beach (Calif.) Poly vs. Compton (Calif.)

The Jackrabbits are led by five-star athlete Jack Jones who plays receiver and defensive back as well as 2017 linebacker Joshua Brown, Jayon's younger brother and 2018 safety Cameron McDonald, who UCLA offered two weeks ago. Utah commit Davir Hamilton, who has a UCLA offer, plays both ways for the Jackrabbits.

Broomfield (Colo.) Legacy vs. Fort Collins (Colo.) Poudre

Legacy and UCLA quarterback commit Matt Lynch take on Poudre in a league game.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw vs. Los Angeles (Calif.)

In a homecoming of sorts, former UCLA receiver and Bruin receivers coach Eric Scott takes his LA High squad to his alma mater to face Crenshaw and Bruin commit Marquis Lawson. Los Angeles features 2017 four-star defensive lineman Martin Andrus and three-star quarterback Kaymen Cureton.

Rialto (Calif.) Carter vs. Redlands (Calif.) Citrus Valley

Carter, with UCLA verbal Lokeni Toailoa and his brother Leni Toailoa, one of UCLA's newest commit, try to get back to their winning ways when they face Citrus Valley.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward vs. North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall

2016 four-star commit Breland Brandt and Windward try to extend their winning streak to five games.

Westlake (Calif.) vs. Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete

In a matchup of two Scout 300 prospects on each side, Westlake brings in four-star receiver Theo Howard, who visited UCLA officially last week and four-star athlete Melquise Stovall, a former USC commit.

Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West vs. Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North

Clovis West and UCLA verbal Darian Owens as well as five-star linebacker Caleb Kelly take on North, the alma mater of Bolu Olorunfunmi.
