A couple quickies from today’s first practice:
QB Ben Olson looked good and received nice reviews from coach Rick Neuheisel and offensive coordinator Norm Chow. QB Kevin Craft struggled mightily, throwing high and off target often while QB Kevin Prince showed nice accuracy after getting rid of some early jitters.
The pace of practice was fast, and among the freshmen, RB Aundre Dean stood out.
Neuheisel said he was impressed with the speed and agility of RB Kahlil Bell, who practiced for the first time since tearing his ACL last October.
Also, Crespi High of Encino receiver Kevin Cummings and Oaks Christian High tight end Chris Coyle were in attendance. Coyle is an Arizona State commit, and I was told he remains a strong commit to ASU but came to practice because UCLA was asking him to do so, and because he has a few friends on the team.
