UCLA just finished up its first day in pads and I gotta say, the intensity level was way up. Guys were flying around hitting each other, at least two fights broke out, and then everybody pretty much ran off the field to go watch the men’s basketball game.
There were a lot of incoming freshman out today. I counted: Milton Knox, Donovan Carter, E.J. Woods, Jonathan Franklin, Datone Jones, Damien Holmes, Nick Crissman, Rahim Moore, Kevin Prince and Aaron Hester although I heard there were a few more floating around.
There were also about 20-25 juniors. The big names included Cierre Wood, a running back from Oxnard, Byron Moore from Narbonne High and Alex Mascarenas, a defensive back from Mission Viejo who committed on Friday.
