Just a few mere hours after UCLA receives its last National Letter of Intent for 2003, BRO has a list of prospects for the class of 2004. You didn't think we'd take any time off, did you?
Realize that this is an extremely early list. This list will change drastically, in just the next couple of months.
Overall, even though it's early, the 2004 class on the west coast looks strong for offensive linemen, wide receivers, and defensive backs, and solid with defensive line and linebackers.
Most of the out-of-state names are those we've heard might have interest in UCLA, or UCLA will more than likely recruit.
John David Booty, 6-3, 185, Shreveport (Louis.) Evangel Christian. He's been hailed the #1 quarterback prospect in high school for two years. Everyone and their mother will be after him.
Rocky Hinds, 6-5, 200, Playa Del Rey (Calif.) St. Bernard's. UCLA, USC and Colorado have already offered.
Rhett Bomar, 6-2, 180, Grand Prairie (Tex.) High. Big-time national recruit.
Anthony Morelli, 6-4, 206, Pittsburgh (Penn.) Penn Hills. Another big national target. He's indicated early that UCLA is on his list.

Rudy Carpenter, 6-2, 190, Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake. Came to UCLA's camp and is known to like UCLA. He transferred from Newbury Park and his eligibility for next year might be in question.
