UCLA Wednesday Skill Camp Evaluations

June 23 -- UCLA had their first day of the Skill Camp on Wednesday and a couple of players stood out...

UCLA had their first of two days of their Skill Camp on Wednesday, in the lead up to their biggest camp, the Bruin Elite Camp on Friday.

There was a small handful of prospects there that UCLA will keep an eye on, but only one player with a Bruin offer.


Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista tight end Erik Krommenhoek was offered by UCLA in April and the Bruins are in a good spot for the son of two UCLA alums.  Krommenhoek was a matchup problem for the linebackers assigned to cover him.  He runs well, gets off the jam quickly, has great body control and gets himself open.  He also caught the ball well in the 1-on-1s and usually was able to drag defenders trying to hold on and strip the ball from him. Krommenhoek measured in at 6-5, 245, and ran a 4.7 in the 40.


Newport Beach (Calif.) Corona Del Mar 2018 tight end Tae Le was just behind Krommenhoek for the most consistent pass-catcher among the tight ends.  We've seen Le a ton this spring and he reminds us of Thomas Duarte in a lot of ways, and coaches compare him to Duarte.  He checked in at 6-2, 213, and clocked a 4.65 in the forty.  He is quick off the line, has soft hands that catch everything and adjusted to some of the poorly thrown balls pretty easily.


La Mirada (Calif.) tight end Sire Woods has a handful of offers and also had some good moments on Wednesday.  He measured 6-3, 217, and like Le, is more of the new era tight ends, more of a big receiver.  He's not real fast and didn't run a great 40, but catches the ball very well and gets himself open.


West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade 2018 four-star quarterback Brevin White really got himself going in the 7v7 portion of the event.  White had a hard time getting in sync with the receivers early, but got into a groove during the 7v7, throwing a nice deep ball, but also getting the ball out quickly and on target in the shorter passes.  He's still pretty slight, at just about 170, and measured 6-1.5, but he can spin it and has sneaky good arm strength.


San Diego (Calif.) St. Augustine 2018 athlete J.R. Justice was one of the more impressive players we saw on Wednesday.  The son of former all-star baseball player David Justice, J.R. is a pretty versatile player, who plays quarterback for his prep team but worked at receiver.  He's pretty explosive, can go up and get the ball, is physical when jammed and has good hands.  He checked in at 6-1.5, 186, and ran a 4.56 handtimed 40.


Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame receiver Tyler Asemota is an intriguing prospect who is more of a track guy playing football.  He's a state qualifier as a jumper but has a handful of football offers.  Asemota measured 6-4, 193, and ran a 4.58 forty and was explosive off the line of scrimmage showed great speed.  He's not a real natural pass-catcher, though, and struggled in his route running.  He's raw, but has the tools to be a guy to keep an eye on.
