The next two weeks will see the big three All-American games take place, and several of UCLA's commits and remaining targets are playing in each game...

UCLA has been well represented in all three of the annual All-American Games over the past two weeks.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio started its practices earlier this week and UCLA has one commit in the game in Gatorade National Player of the Year and Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian running back Malcolm Jones.

Byrnes defensive tackle Brandon Willis, Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy defensive end Ego Ferguson, Temple (Texas) running back Lache Seastrunk and Goodyear (Ariz.) Millenium safety Marquis Flowers. Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola athlete Anthony Barr was selected and will travel to San Antonio, but will not play because of an ankle injury.

The U.S. Army Bowl will take place on Saturday, January 9th at 10 a.m. PST on NBC.
