Quick One-Day Camp Report

Here's a quick look at Saturday's one-day camp, with a mention of some of the standouts, including Tommy Grady, Kyle Caldwell, Clifton Smith, Freddie Parish, and Travis Draper, and who garned scholarship offers...

This is a quick report on Saturday's one-day camp; we'll have a complete, in-depth story Monday and many recruiting updates also to follow, as well as a couple of photo galleries.

There was some solid talent at wide receiver, linebacker and defensive line at the camp. And there was probably the most talent at defensive back for a UCLA one-day camp in recent years. But, the other positions were pretty light talent-wise.

Probably the three elite rising senior prospects at the camp were quarterback Tommy Grady, Huntington Beach Edison; cornerback Clifton Smith, Fresno Edison, and Kyle Caldwell, defensive end, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro.

Just a slight notch below those three were defensive back Freddie Parish, Long Beach Poly; offensive lineman Travis Draper, Paso Robles; wide receiver Devin Stearns; committed offensive lineman P.J. Irvin, Agoura Hills; defensive back Terrell Thomas; defensive back Leon Hall, Vista; defensive back Dennis Keyes, Van Nuys Birmingham, and wide receiver Jason Ferguson, Los Angeles Fairfax.

Defensive lineman Kevin Brown of Long Beach Poly and wide receiver Quintin Daniels from Los Angeles Loyoal were in attendance, but didn't participate. Chris Owens, OL/DL from Long Beach Poly, participated on a very limited basis.

There were some other prospects who looked good, too, and possibly improved their stock with the UCLA coaches: Ryan Kalil, offensive line, Anaheim Servite; Matt Spanos, Corona; defensive lineman; linebacker Phillip Rauscher, La Costa Canyon; linebacker Chris Purtz, Clovis West; linebacker Fred McNeill, Los Angeles Loyola; Brandon Mebane, defensive tackle, Crenshaw; Robert Gustavis, offensive line, North Torrance; Joe Cowan, wide receiver, Bellflower St. John Bosco; Ryan Smith, defensive back, La Puente Bishop Amat, and Lorenzo Sims, defensive back, Fresno Edison.

Some new names that have definitely been added to UCLA's to-watch list: Joe Rothenberger, defensive end, Chino Don Lugo; Mike Harris, wide receiver, Covina Charter Oak; running back/athlete Durell Moss, Orange; Eric Moore WR/TE, Brea Olinda; Josh Sayles, RB/ATH, Rancho Cucamonga; Royce Edgington, OL, San Gorgonio; Craig Stevens, TE, Peninsula, and Daymeion Hughes, RB, Crenshaw.

Two of the best players at the camp were two underclassmen, rising junior safety Randy Estes, Los Alamitos, and rising sophomore running back Aaron Ware, Westlake Village Oaks Christian. The word circulating around the camp was that UCLA offered Estes a scholarship. Ware was probably the best running back for the day, regardless of class and, of course, it's naturally assumed that Ware has been offered -- probably since the time he was 12-years-old.

As we reported from the camp, Freddie Parrish, Leon Hall, Dennis Keyes, and Terrell Thomas were all offered scholarships today.
