First the bad: Jalen Grimble, the Bishop Gorman defensive end, has verbally committed to USC. I thought UCLA had a really good shot at him, but clearly the signing of his cousin Xavier (’09 No. 1 TE) had an influence. I’ve learned not to count Neuheisel out on anything, though.
Now the good: I was told by a close friend of Darius Bell that he will be at UCLA after he graduates in June, “if” he graduates in June. Scout.com’s Brandon Huffman is reporting the same thing. The big news, though, is that Bell’s arrival could have something to do with the increased role of the Revolver offense.
