Football Recruiting Junior Day

A group of high school junior football prospects spend the day at UCLA, and here's the scuttlebutt...

UCLA's Junior Day was reportedly very successful, even though UCLA didn't get any commitments from the day.

Below is a list of the players I've been able to collect as coming to yesterday's Junior Day. I'm absolutely sure there were more and I'll try to find out who else attended.

The juniors attended the UCLA/Oregon basketball game, and a few observers said that particularly impressive physically were Cedric Ellis, Michael Okwo, Freddie Parrish and Devin Stearns.

Ellis is considered a bit-time defensive end and it appears that UCLA is doing well with him early.

It was interesting to have all three of UCLA's top quarterback targets in attendance, Dixon, Wright and Grady. Wright impressed, as did Dixon. Reports are that Grady looks tall and thin.

Rumbings around Pauley Pavilion were that UCLA is doing very well with Parrish, Baker and Daniels, as well as all three quarterbacks. It could be that one of these six could be UCLA's first commitment. It's believed that Parrish, Baker and Daniels haven't been offered yet, but if they test well at the Nike Camp next month and/or have a good showing at UCLA's one-day camp in June, they could get offers and commit fairly quickly. Parrish's father is a Bruin and Freddie grew up a Bruin fan. The family, reports are, understand that Freddie didn't have the opportunity to play that much at Poly given all the talented seniors on the team and that the UCLA coaches need to see more of him before offering.
