UCLA Football's Mini-Junior Days

Instead of one huge Junior Day like other programs, UCLA has a few mini-Junior Days to get more one-on-one time with the recruits. The first two of the season are tonight and Saturday, and here are some of the recruits we've heard are attending...

UCLA doesn't have a one, big Junior Day, but a series of small, mini-Junior Days that are far more effective.

Instead of having 75 to 100 kids on campus for a few hours, where the head coach is unable to speak with every one for any kind of length, UCLA has a few days where they'll bring 20-30 recruits onto campus. Rick Neuheisel, of course, wants to speak with every prospect and his family so this keeps Neuheisel from losing his mind, too.

Then, UCLA also has a few more additional days during spring practice in April, where a recruit can visit, take a tour of campus, meet with academic advisors, attend practice and even eat with the team (for $10).

UCLA will have about 25 recruits on campus tonight for the Oregon State basketball game, and about another 25-30 on Saturday.
