I really enjoyed reading your observation on the Barr commitment. However, I believe that getting Malcolm Jones was just as big in terms of “selling the program.” Considering he is a great student, that RB is not a position of need and his accomplishments in high school (Gatorade National Player of the Year), I believe that Neuheisel did a great job of showing what UCLA has to offer Jones (in football and beyond). And while he may not have the versatility of Barr, Jones did play LB as well as RB. Do you agree with this, or still think that the Barr commitment was bigger? Thanks for your time. – Bruwin5931
Both are definitely huge. Jones might have the more immediate impact – and establishing an Oaks Christian pipeline is major – but the Barr commitment just strikes me as a major long-term get, particularly against Notre Dame.
Does it appear CRN may be focusing on offensive skill players, of which he was criticized for at Wash and Colorado? – Joe B. Ruin
Look at who might close out this class. No.
With talk of the pre-NFL draft running backs you don’t hear anything about Stafon Johnson. Do you think he’ll be drafted? If not, would a strong senior bowl help? – Anonymous
Obviously, as it stands, Johnson is more of a story than a prospect. No one knows how he’ll respond to the injury. It takes a hell of a lot of courage to resume his career in any way. If it works out, good for him.
Do you think that, as a coach, Ben Howland will gain more from this season then the seasons he took UCLA to the finals? – cfcfan
Is Mike Moser redshirting? – Anonymous
No, but he’s out of the rotation for now. Has to work on his jumper and his patience.
