Junior Day and Practice

A good number of prospects from the class of 2007 came to UCLA Saturday for "Junior Day," to watch the Bruins go through drills and a 40-play scrimmage that showcased two good quarterback performances...

It was Junior Day at UCLA today -- the day when some of the best prospects in the junior class come out to UCLA, watch practice, have lunch, see the campus and meet with the coaches.

Here is a non-comprehensive list of some of the prospects who attended. Most of UCLA's prime targets were in attendance:

Akeem Ayers, LB/DE (Verbum Dei)
Courtney Viney, CB(Fresno Edison)
Raymond Carter, RB (Crenshaw)
Brian Price, DT, wearing a UCLA beanie (Crenshaw)
Chris Carter, LB (Kaiser)
Donovan Warren, CB (LB Poly)
Kenny Rowe, DE (LB Poly)
Bryshon Nellum, WR (LB Poly)
Joey Redding, WR (LB Poly)
Aaron Corp, QB (Orange Lutheran)
Mike Reardon, TE/DE (Orange Lutheran)
Charlie Carmichael, OL (Notre Dame)
Sam DeMartinis, OL (Notre Dame)
Shane Horton, S (Notre Dame)
Nate Chandler, TE (Mira Mesa)
Markques Simas, WR (Mira Mesa)
Da'John Harris, TE (Serra)
Ronnie Fouch, QB (Redlands East Valley)
Andre Ferguson, LB/DE (Redlands East Valley)
Alex Probasco, DE (Mira Costa)
K.C. Patterson, QB (Fullerton JC)
Cory Yriarte, OL/DL (Paraclete)
Tyrone Duncan, DL (Westlake)
Duke Lemmens, DL (Oaks Christian)

We'll have more names to add to this list soon.

We didn't hear that any verbal commitments resulted from the day, but practice was in the morning. We have heard that there are some prospects on this list that are very strong leans to UCLA, and one source from a high school indicated that one player could very well verbally commit today. We'll try to get that to you as soon as it happens, of course.


We'll have more details of the actual practice coming later, with a play-by-play of the 40-play scrimmage.

Suffice it to say that both Ben Olson and Patrick Cowan looked very good throwing the ball.
