After signing the nation's No. 1 outside linebacker last week in Mique Juarez, the Bruins already have a commitment from another Scout 300 prospect in Jaquan Henderson from Georgia. Henderson committed to UCLA last year after an unofficial visit in the spring. Michigan could loom large in that recruitment if the Wolverines get very involved, since Henderson's good friend Kurt Taylor is commited to Michigan, but Henderson remains committed to the Bruins.
Javaris Steward has been high on UCLA for a while despite his day-long commitment to USC and he's one of UCLA's primary targets. He currently considers himself a UCLA verbal, but his recruitment is pretty fluid and in its preliminary stages.
Santino Marchiol, who visited UCLA in the summer before his junior year, has since moved on from Colorado to play at IMG Academy in Floridam so he will likely attract national attention.
Baron Browning is a commit to Baylor who UCLA has offered and is still recruiting despite his verbal.
UCLA has just one offer out to an inside linebacker in Will Ignont, who is also at IMG Academy, and he's a national prospect with offers from everywhere.
That could mean Joshua Brown, the younger brother of Jayon, will get some heavier UCLA interest this spring. An early offer could mean an early commitment.
Tysyn Parker is one of Serra's top prospects in the 2017 class and the Bruins will watch him this spring.
