What Recruiting is Left For 2005?

With tomorrow being Signing Day, we look at the remaining targets on UCLA's recruiting board for the Class of 2005.

With Signing Day less than 48 hours away, we'll take a look at who is left on UCLA's recruiting board.

Though its reportedly out that Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch tight end Charles Brown has solidified his once soft commitment to USC, some sources are indicating that it still may not be a done deal. For the sake of argument, we'll assume it isnt. So Brown is one of three targets left on UCLA's board.

Next is linebacker target Adrian McCovy from Lakewood (Calif.) High. McCovy visited UCLA this past weekend and told us he enjoyed his visit and likes the Bruin staff's plans for him in the UCLA defense. Arizona has been his leader for a while, and the Wildcats have a strong chance of getting him.

However, some feel that he and teammate Luther Brown would be a package deal to the Wildcats, and that if Brown chose USC, it may keep McCovy from going to Arizona. He has said on numerous occasions that if he decided to stay close to home, that UCLA would be the choice, so it's a matter of McCovy choosing between playing in his backyard, or playing at Arizona. He will announce tomorrow at a news conference at Lakewood.

Peninsula tight end Erik Lorig has reportedly eliminated USC, who was once thought to be the heavy favorite, and will choose between Cal and UCLA, with Cal being the widely held choice. He will announce tomorrow as well. We've heard from multiple sources that Lorig has gotten tight with several of the incoming recruits, but it remains to be seen if that is enough to pull him away from Cal. Stanford and Notre Dame are also reportedly still in the mix.

Finally, we're hearing rumblings close to the program that there could be a surprise signee tomorrow, but that's about all we know.
