UCLA football recruiting has been at its finest since Jim L. Mora was hired back in December.
And now, as a result, we’ve picked up the third-best QB in all of prep football.
Ladies and germs, I present to you Devin Fuller:
Please, close your mouths, will ya?
We already know that UCLA has done a damn fine job of putting together a class that’s right up there with the best of them after having an incredibly shoddy start to our recruiting. Mora’s acquisition of guys like Noel Mazzone, Demetrice Martin and Adrian Klemm are seriously paying its dividends before February 1 (National Signing Day).
So not only will we have a legitimate QB competition this season between seniors Richard Brehaut and Kevin Prince, and redshirt freshman Brett Hundley, but we’ll also have an interesting-as-hell competition the year after with Brett Hundley likely competing with our shiny, new toy, Devin Fuller.
Add that to the fact that we have what is possibly the best offensive coordinator in the nation, a 6-foot-8-inch beast of a tight end in Joe Fauria and a nice offensive line, and we could have ourselves the best UCLA football season in damn near a decade.
Of course, receivers are going to be an issue for UCLA this year — we have one three-star commit at wide-out in Fabian Moreau — and that might be something to watch for. But considering that this is probably the best coaching staff UCLA has assembled in a long-ass time, we my have a reason to be uncharacteristically optimistic.
