5-9 junior-to-be Nnamdi Ohaeri, who played back-up safety last season, will be given a shot at cornerback this spring.
Ohaeri is considered one of the best athletes on the football team and a great hitter. UCLA is trying to find a replacement for departed corner Matt Ware, who chose to forego his senior season and put his name in the NFL draft. -- The BRO Staff
Eddie Miller, a freshman quarterback at Louisville this past season, will walk on at UCLA next year.
Miller, who threw for over 7,000 yards at Venice High School, will be enrolled in time to participate in spring practice. -- Tracy Pierson
Many have panicked about the academics of Lorenzo Mata, the 6-9 PF/C who is committed to UCLA, recently.
Put your fears to rest.
Mata has achieved a passing SAT score. He has also raised his GPA into the mid 2 range. It's anticipated it will continue to rise after his last semester.
So, barring a completely collapse in his second semester, Mata will be a Bruin. -- Tracy Pierson
