Talking up walk-on Andrew Abbott

During training camp last August, then-defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker told me to keep an eye on freshman walk-on cornerback Andrew Abbott. At the time, Abbott was turning heads.
Well, here we are getting ready to end spring practice, and Abbott’s name keeps popping up when I talk to members of the coaching staff.
The latest was defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough, who said, “Abbott has flashed, made some plays.”
Abbott prepped at Santa Ana Mater Dei and was going to walk-on at Oregon before changing to UCLA.
