UCLA’s QB depth

With Chris Forcier transferring, it leaves UCLA’s quarterback depth lacking for the 2010 season, which is why UCLA is looking at Nebraska transfer Patrick Witt.
Kevin Craft and Osaar Rasshan are seniors, and the other scholarship quarterbacks in the program are Kevin Prince (who will be a red-shirt sophomore in 2010), Richard Brehaut (he will be a red-shirt freshman or true sophomore) and Nick Crissman (he will be a red-shirt sophomore).
The Bruins also plan on bringing in a true freshman in the 2010 class, so Witt would still be the elder statesman of the group.
Also, UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said he it did not look like Crissman (shoulder surgery) would be available for spring practice.

UCLA and Branden Warner

I am hearing it is growing more and more unlikely Compton College defensive tackle Brandon Warner will be at UCLA in the summer because of transcript issues. Furthermore, I am hearing Warner could wind up at New Mexico State.

Olson injures foot again

The bad luck continues for former UCLA quarterback Ben Olson, who re-aggravated the foot injury that forced him to miss the 2008 season. He will not take part in tomorrow’s pro day at UCLA. I will have more on it in Tuesday’s paper.
