Upcoming Events for UCLA Recruits

Between football camps and combines and basketball tournaments, including UCLA's own camps, the next six weeks are filled with significant events involving UCLA football and basketball recruits, and could be critical in determining which recruits end up Bruins. Here's a schedule of events for you recruitniks...

May 29-31 -- Pangos All-American Camp
Cabrillo High School, Long Beach, Calif.

Many UCLA basketball prospects will participate.  

May 30 – Los Angeles Scout.com Combine

L.A. Harbor College,  Wilmington, Calif.

The premier annual event for football recruiting in the Southland.  There should be plenty of UCLA prospects.  UCLA Head Coach Rick Neuheisel's son, Jerry, will participate, which will allow Neuheisel to attend the event.

June 6 – UCLA Football One-Day Camp
UCLA (Spaulding Field)

UCLA coaches have been out during April and May checking out prospects at their respective high schools, inviting them to attend this one-day camp on UCLA's campus to get a closer look.  UCLA scholarship offers could result, while those who are already offered, like receiver Kenny Stills, could feel compelled to commit.

June 6 -- San Francisco Scout.com Combine

Kezar Stadium, San Francisco, Calif.

Many UCLA prospects from Northern California will participate. 

June 12-14 – Rose City Showcase

Portland, Oregon

Some of the best basketball AAU teams in the Northwest will participate, an event that includes UCLA target Josh Smith and elite prospect Tony Wroten.  The Pump team, which usually has UCLA-level prospects, are tentatively listed as being in it.  Nick Johnson, a 2010 prospect, will play with the Oakland Soldiers.   

June 12-14 – Mater Dei Tournament

Mater Dei High School, Santa Ana, Calif.

Traditionally a good high school team tournament.  UCLA commit Tyler Lamb will compete with Mater Dei, and other UCLA prospects will participate.  

June 18-21 – J. Serra Tournament
J. Serra High School, San Juan Capistrano, Calif.

The tournament had a good amount of talent in it last year and it's expected to be the same this year.  

June 21-23 -– UCLA Football Three-Day Camp

UCLA (IM Field)

Much like the one-day camp, but over the course of three days, it gives the UCLA coaches a chance to get a closer look at prospects they're considering offering.  

June 26-28 -- B2G Football Camp

Cal Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks

A very good showcase event where many UCLA prospects have made a name for themselves.  

June 28-29 – UCLA Basketball Elite Camp

UCLA (Pauley Pavilion)

Approximately 40 to 50 of the top recruits from the west participate in a camp run by Ben Howland and the UCLA basketball staff.  It gives Howland a chance to see prospects over the course of a couple of days, get a feel for how they take instruction, their work ethic, etc.  Reportedly, this year, the camp will consist of more playing and less instruction, to give Howland more of a chance to watch and evaluate.  The five incoming freshmen will participate, as well as such big-named young prospects as Xavier Johnson, Norvel Pelle, Gelaun Wheelwright, Angelo Chol, Robert Upshaw, and Eric Cooper, Jr.
