The Class of 2005

Here's a look at some of the possible recruiting targets in the high school football class of 2005, including the three current UCLA commits. These are the guys UCLA very well could be involved with for the next year in recruiting...

As of today, UCLA would have only 14 scholarships to give to the 2005 class. 

There will be 13 seniors next year, and there is currently one open scholarship for fall.

But there are a number of scenarios that could open up more scholarships.  Undoubtedly there will be more rides that open up between now and next February (there always are).  It's probably reasonable to expect that 16-20 scholarships will be available.

Here is a very early list of some of the potential recruiting targets in the class of 2005. The names with the asterisks are those that are thought be be clearly elite prospects, even though that doesn't mean that those that don't have an asterisk aren't.  Remember, again, this is a very early list.
