The UCLA football program has had a rash of defections recently. Once highly rated, receiver Tab Perry left school after being dismissed and is slated to transfer to a I-AA program so he can play next season. The team's second leading rusher, Tyler Ebell was granted a release and will be transferring.
TFY Draft Preview: This comes as no surprise as we reported in the middle of November Ware was heavily leaning towards entering the draft. His father, an accomplished attorney, was a big influence from what we heard. What will be surprising to see is the position Ware ultimately plays. Though used mainly at corner for UCLA we feel his man-cover skills are average at best and he's better suited, mentally and physically, facing the quarterback in centerfield. This was a mistake in the sense a big senior season would've propelled Ware into the top 20 of April '05 and right now we see him struggling to get into the late part of round two.
