Center Fred Ulu-Perry becomes third offensive lineman in UCLA’s 2015 class

UCLA landed its third commitment of the week in center Fred Ulu-Perry, just the latest prospect to join the Bruins’ offensive line.

Ulu-Perry, who can also play guard, is rated three stars by Rivals.com — which first reported the commitment Friday — and four stars by Scout.com.

The 6-foot-2, 310-pound Honolulu St. Louis product was among those who participated at Nike’s The Opening in Eugene, and his announcement was preceded by fellow campers Andre James — a four-star tackle — and athlete Stephen Johnson also verbally pledging to UCLA this week.

Four-star lineman Tevita Halalilo also committed to the Bruins in April.

    If what I!’m hearing and what is being reported is true. We could end up having the best o line class in Ucla history! We lead the country in average stars per player. Wow! Go Bruins!

    How sweet it is! Welcome aboard Fred.

    I’m sorry to go off topic, but who chose the new banner for this website? Was it a USC fan? You can barely see “UCLA” in the design, and it has no link whatsoever to any known UCLA logo. I hate to say it, but the Inside USC banner is much better. Jack, please suggest a change to make this one more identifiable with UCLA rather than remaining a somewhat generic design.

      Jack could care less about that. He is too busy tweeting and drafting his one post per day to worry about web design.

      • IIWIICUB

        the expression you’re looking for is “couldn’t care less”. to say that he could care less suggests that jack does in fact care, to an extent, and i believe your intent was to infer otherwise.

        • Hogsman

          I think perhaps you meant to use “imply” instead of “infer”. A writer “implies”, while a reader “infers”.

          • IIWIICUB

            good point,

        • VB

          I COULDN’T care less about any of that. :)

    Yay team! We have hogs on the line. Let’s wear down the opponents!

    Bruins fans, it was reported to today, by Inside SUCC, that SUCC’s starting QB, CK, can hit a moving golf cart with a football 3 out of 3 times. So Bruins, expect SUCC’s resident, obnoxious honk, to be crowing about CK’s significant achievement on this blog, shortly.

    Hey Jack…it’s now July 15th and your last post was on July 11th. Do you think you could try doing your job?

    • VB

      Nah. Jack comes from Jon Gold School of Blogging. As long as he writes his pieces for the Daily News and throws us an obligatory bone once in a while, he will keep his job. Long gone are the days of Brian Dohn, who worked tirelessly to make this into the #1 information site for UCLA sports. We saw some glimmer of hope when Miguel Melendez took over for a short time. He was doing fantastic covering the Fall camp. Then the DN canned him and replaced with with Wang, who has been absolutely terrible since he started. I’m sure the DN notices the massive drop off in website hits. I’m surprised they haven’t done anything about it.

      I mean, it’s pretty sad that I would rather read Scott Wolf’s USC blog than the UCLA blog.

      • IIWIICUB

        if it was worth DN’s time and money to use resources on this blog then that’s what the DN would to. thing is, this blog doesn’t get enough hits to justify spending those resources, whether a pro like dohn is at the helm or not. which is why they let him go and why they spent less money on wang when they could have had miguel.

        maybe demand will change if ucla wins a couple of rose bowls, but right now it just isn’t there. (and the ucla diehards are on BRO).

        • VB

          Disagree. I think that this blog had plenty of hits back in the Dohn days, and even in the beginning of the Gold days. Remember, I tailgated with both Dohn and Gold personally and they told me that this blog was very popular. Gold started off great, and then he got lazy and started to focus more on his comedic vlogs than posting anything informative on here. Melendez was our last hope, but the DN went with the cheaper option and hired Wang.

          • IIWIICUB

            had plenty of hits, but not enough to justify spending money to keep dohn. DN went cheaper b/c the audience, while larger back in the day, wasn’t big enough.

          • VB

            First of all, Dohn wasn’t let go. He voluntarily left for a job to cover Rutgers. Second of all, if ESPN is consistently linking stories to this blog, then it is indeed valuable to the DN, since there are tons of readers on the ESPN blog who are routed to this very site.

          • IIWIICUB

            if DN wanted to spend the $ then they could have kept dohn. dohn got a better offer but DN didn’t match it b/c this blog is not a priority for them/ the hits don’t justify it.

            ESPN links stories to a lot of blogs for a lot of teams. It has to, especially in the summertime when there isn’t a lot of news.

            but proportionally, there are tons more readers on the espn blog who are routed to other sites from those links, whose teams have larger fan bases.

            in the end, you get what you pay for, and if you wanted better coverage then you’d sign up for BRO or scout.

    I bet Scott Wolf gets three times as many hits on his blog than you do. Why? Because he actually posts things on a regular basis. He doesn’t just regurgitate news that is first reported by other agencies.

    WAKE UP, JACK!!

  • Michael Ryerson

    The new banner is weak. really.

    • VB

      It fits this blog.

      • Michael Ryerson

        I don’t know why the Daily News bothers. They surely can’t think they’re winning friends and influencing people associated with UCLA with this rag, could they? Wang doesn’t have any ties to the school and is clearly disinterested. He may think of himself as a journalist but he’s doing himself no favors with a half-assed effort on here. What? Is he going to point at his work here as some kind of reference when a prospective new employer wants to see what he’s done? Ha.

        • VB

          Masterfully stated, my friend.

  • VB

    Yes, but Brian Dohn found a way to produce a quality blog all year long, even in the dog days of summer. Wang goes days without posting ANYTHING.

    • IIWIICUB

      so you want wang to post fluff and filler? have fun reading that.

      • VB

        No, I said that Dohn produced a QUALITY blog year round, not filler.

        • IIWIICUB

          dohn was a rare talent. DN won’t didn’t want to spend the money to keep. can’t really compare him a recent grad like wang.

          but i guess he could go the wolf route and post more filler, if there were enough hits to justify it.

          • VB

            Ironically, we are adding entertainment value and hit statistics to this blog by arguing over this. hah.

          • IIWIICUB

            seriously VB- it seems like you live and die for UCLA coverage and i respect that. scout/bruin report online would be a paradise for you. and you know what? your boy dohn posts there occasionally, too.
