Three Bruins named Freshman All-Americans

Three first-year UCLA players have been named to the Freshman All-America team by the Football Writers Association of America, more than any other team in the country.

Linebacker Myles Jack, defensive end Eddie Vanderdoes and right guard Alex Redmond each received the honor — a fact made more remarkable by their status as true freshmen.

Center Jake Brendel received an FWAA selection last season as a redshirt freshman.

This year’s full All-American roster is listed after the jump.

    Great accomplishment. Things looking up for next year and beyond.

  • SonOfWestwood

    This is a very meaningful accomplishment for the team moving forward. The Starting OL of White, Redmond, Brendel, Bennenoch, and Goines couldbbe one of the best units in the nation next year. And even with the losses of Barr and Zummy, The front seven should be a strength again, only this time the secondary will be improved.

    I am already excited to see what this team can do.
