UCLA Recruits in All-American Games

UCLA has a good number of UCLA-committed players and recruits participating in the three national All-American games over the next week, including UCLA-committed tight end Morrell Presely, quarterback Richard Brehaut and receiver/athlete Roby Toma...

Over the next week we'll see plenty of UCLA commits and remaining targets in those three national prep all-star games.

UCLA-committed players have been selected to the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl and UnderArmour All-America Game, and a few UCLA targets will be in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Here is a look at the UCLA commits and recruits in each game.

Under Armour All-America Game: Sunday, January 4th at 5 p.m. PST on ESPN

As it was a year ago, the UnderArmour All-America Game will be the most represented game by Bruin commits, with four current verbals in the game and many more remaining targets.

Leading off the roster for the Bruin commits is tight end Morrell Presley, the #1-ranked tight end in the country, who will be in his first action since switching his commitment to UCLA from USC. He will be playing receiver and tight end for the Black Team.

At quarterback for the Black Team will be commit Richard Brehaut, who's the second straight UCLA commit at quarterback to be selected for the UA game, following Nick Crissman a year ago.

Up front, Stan Hasiak, a soft verbal to the Bruins, will be one of the offensive linemen for the Black.

And the most recent addition is Roby Toma, the fast-rising three-star receiver from Honolulu, who was added following a stellar showing in the Hawaii-Mainland All-Star Game.

There are several other targets in the game, none bigger than Manti Te'o, Toma's teammate from Punahou, who will be playing linebacker for the Black Team. Te'o tripped to UCLA in October, then visited Notre Dame in November and will be visiting Stanford, BYU and USC in January.

Two of UCLA's remaining offensive line targets will also be on the Black Team: Utah natives John Martinez and Xavier Sua-Filo. Martinez visited UCLA in early December while Sua-Filo is expected to visit UCLA in mid-January, the same weekend Toma visits.

U.S. Army All-American Bowl: Saturday, January 3rd at 11 a.m. PST on NBC

UCLA doesn't have a commit in the Army Bowl, but one of their primary recruiting targets will be playing in San Antonio.

Offensive tackle Michael Philipp will be playing for the West, and the Bruins are one of his top six schools. He's visited UCLA officially already.

Another player UCLA expects to get a visit from is Randal Carroll, the receiver from Los Angeles Cathedral, who's a very soft commit to USC. UCLA will be trying to get him in for a visit in January.

Other familiar names include Cierre Wood, Shaquelle Evans, Byron Moore, Chris Coyle and Devon Kennard.

Offense-Defense All-American Bowl: Friday, January 2nd at 3 p.m. PST on Fox College Sports

Todd Golper and Keenan Graham were both invited to and selected to play in the O-D Game, but an injury sidelined Golper from participating while Graham was a last-minute scratch from the game.

The lone serious target for the Bruins in the O-D Bowl is Chris Hubbard, the offensive lineman from Georgia who visited UCLA officially in October and still holds high interest in the Bruins. Hubbard will play on the offensive line for the East.

Former UCLA commit Marlon Pollard was the first player announced for the O-D Bowl, having been a longtime camper at the O-D Camps and he'll be playing for the West. As we've reported, even though Pollard is committed to Notre Dame, there is some renewed interest between Pollard and UCLA.

Receiver Jerry Rice Jr., who's been dialoguing with UCLA, is also on the West roster.
