Here is set No. 4:
Does UCLA have a chance of landing Seantrel Henderson, or is it a total pipe dream?
Who works their men harder, Cap Sig or Coach Howland?
Well, I get to see Sig behind the scenes more with his guys more than Howland. I bet Sig would open practice.
Do you feel the coaches settled on Nottingham (QB)? E.g. do you feel they were more or less forced to grab him based on him being the “next available guy” on their board, or was he somebody they legitimately wanted?
He was the next available on the board, but UCLA does think he has a good upside. He is smart, I am told he picks up defensive concepts well and he has a big frame. I don’t think he’s the next John Elway, but give him a few years to develop and let’s see then.
How many DTs do the football coaches want to bring in with the 2010 class? The more the better as far as I’m concerned.
Not that many more. There are already two committed, and I would think one or two more would do the trick. You can’t overload the position, and you cannot cause a huge imbalance in your classes or the same problem will come up in four more years.
Does DT David Carter have a chance to contribute this year? How has he looked?
He better contribute now that Branden Warner isn’t coming. And how has he looked in what? Spring practice ended two months ago.
Using the eyeball test just how big were Stan Hasiak and Xavier Su’a Filo?
They were bigger and looked stronger than any freshmen I’ve seen in six years covering UCLA.
Is freshmen Reeves Nelson as ugly in person as he is in his scout and rivals profile pics?
Boy, that is classy. Nice to know how superficial (not to mention mean) you are. Congrats. I’m sure your parents are proud.
Do you think DeMar DeRozan has more pro potential than OJ Mayo? People seem to be praising his attitude and comparing him to Trevor Ariza – meaning a player who (still) has a huge upside.
Yes, I do, but only because Mayo is such a selfish player. He will jack up shots with no care about how it affects the team. If Mayo was more of a team player, I would go with him. But DeRozan has sick athleticism.
