I’m hearing the number of high school recruits who could show up at UCLA’s opener Monday against Tennessee may top 50. Be mindful not all will be Pac-10 caliber players, but building relationships with schools, and its players, is very important in the recruiting process.
That said, here are the high-profile players I’m hearing are planning to attend; UCLA commits
QB Richard Brehaut (Los Osos of Rancho Cucamonga), LB Isaiah Bowens (Bishop Amat of La Puente and LB Todd Golper (Arcadia)
Other 2009 recruits
Arizona commit TE Chris Coyle (Oaks Christian of Westlake), TE J.T. Kerr (Scripps Ranch of San Diego), WR Ricky Marvray (Centennial of Corona), USC commit S Byrone Moore (Narbonne), OT Michael Philipp (Arroy Valley of San Bernardino) and USC commit TE Morrell Presley (Carson).
LB Hayes Pollard of Crenshaw, WR Robert Woods (Serra Gardena) and S Sean Parker (Narbonne).

As many of you know, I do enjoy that sport the Americans call soccer, and the 14th-ranked Bruins open the season tonight against No. 8 Maryland at the Home Depot Center at 7 p.m. Those interested can watch it on Fox Soccer Channel.
And for those who do tune in, keep an eye on Bruins defender Brad Rusin (No. 3), who is a smooth player.
I know some folks asked for an open forum during games to chat with others. I will set up a several posts for discussions a few hours prior to the game, one for the first half, one at half time and one for after the game in which folks to can post thoughts and exchange comments and ideas. Please keep it clean.
I will also have updates throughout the weekend, and before, during and after the game.
