2006 Football Prospects: Offense

Yes, Signing Day was just two days ago, but it's never too early to look to the next class, the class of 2006. UCLA will be looking to load up on offensive linemen. Here's a first look at some potential UCLA prospects for offense...

UCLA has 17 seniors-to-be, so at this point, 17 scholarships available for the 2006 football recruiting class.

But, as always, you can expect some to become available. You'd have to think that UCLA will have about 20 for this class.

It's generally a fairly strong class in the west for 2006.  There aren't any clear-cut elite quarterbacks, but there is good depth, and potential for some to step up this spring and prove themselves elite in the camps and combines. UCLA will probably be looking to take one quarterback for 2006.

It's a fairly strong class for running backs, especially after such a poor class in 2005. UCLA very well could take two running backs, with one being the big, Manuel White-type.

It looks to be a solid class of receivers, with some projected elite talent at the top and some good-sized prospects mixed in.  UCLA, again, will be after that big play-making wide receiver, and possibly two.  The Bruins will also want to probably take one tight end.

2005 wasn't a stellar year for offensive linemen in the west, but it looks like that will improve for 2006.  It's good timing since UCLA will probably load up on OLs in this class, taking up to five.  As we've reported, they're about to get a verbal commitment from Walter Watts.

Prospects listed below with asterisks next to their name are believed to be elite prospects at this time.  Players from California are those that we have recognized as potential UCLA-level recruits.  Prospects listed from other states are those that are considered potentially elite prospects that have shown an early interest in UCLA, or vice versa.
