Denzel Fisher marks UCLA’s continued focus on secondary

Hours after landing its best defensive recruit yet in four-star prospect Adarius Pickett, UCLA landed another cornerback: Compton Centennial’s Denzel Fisher.

A three-star recruit, Fisher is Scout.com’s No. 7 cornerback in the West and No. 40 in the country. The Bruins now have five defensive backs in their 2014 class after inking four in February.

UCLA’s 58-20 home win over Nevada likely impressed some high schoolers, injecting a bit of momentum in what had been a slow recruiting start.

    The UCLA brand is trending up in football.

    As long as UCLA can keep this staff together, it looks like we’re all in for a fun ride for years to come.

      Agreed Marc. I hope UCLA makes the commitment to the football program. This staff has NFL experience and recruits kids to fit their styles of play. We keep this staff. I have no doubt we will take over and be the dominant program in college football much like our 20 game winning streak Bruins
      were.

      They won’t stay together. Barr….gone. Hundley….gone. Win 9 games, Mora…..gone. Marc my words.

    Please clarify a detail for me. We have CB Adarius Pickett and CB Denzel Fisher declaring this week and four others from February. Isn’t that 6 defensive backs?

    This is great. It sounds like BOOM. What is the 2014 commit situation now?

  • Mark

    We all know this don’t mean nothin’ until they sign for real in February. That’s a long way away. These early committs may be the worst thing since now they’ll just talk with other teams behind our back!
