Anthony Jefferson, Malcolm Bunche to play in NFLPA Bowl

UCLA defensive back Anthony Jefferson and offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche have agreed to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, one of the many postseason all-star events for draft-eligible players.

The game will be played on Jan. 17 at 1 p.m., and be broadcast on ESPN.

Jefferson was the most experienced and versatile member of the Bruins’ secondary, capable of playing both cornerback and safety. He finished third on the team with 72 tackles, and also had an interception and eight pass breakups. Bunche, a graduate transfer from Miami, began the season as UCLA’s starting left tackle — but was later shifted to left guard and eventually benched entirely. He did not travel with the Bruins to the Alamo Bowl due to academics.

Former UCLA defensive linemen Keenan Graham and Seali’i Epenesa played in last year’s NFLPA Bowl, but neither was drafted.

    It is difficult to get into the NFL. Sorry to say that Keenan Graham and Seali’i Epenesa still don’t have NFL jobs. Good luck to them, Anthony Jefferson and Malcolm Bunche.

    Mr. Wang, public school’s recruiting class appears to be falling apart faster than Mora’s persona of being a level-headed, mentor to collegians. I mean public school has beaten those bass-turds across town 3x in a row (although well-behind in the overall series); is supposedly a program on the rise; had an overwhelming 1 game win-loss advantage over those crosstown
    bass-turds this season. Yet, they are losing the few heralded recruits that committed early.

    Meanwhile, those bass-turds across town are on the verge of pulling in a top 3 recruiting class, despite years of tumult (i.e. severe sanctions and coaching changes), a mediocre performance (based solely on the expectations of those crosstown bass-turds. Since that bass-turd, Pete Carroll, left 5 years ago, those bass-turds still have a better overall record than public school).

    What gives? Has public school peaked? Should we lower our expectations and be content with mediocrity (based on the definition of those bass-turds across town). Why do top high school recruits not want to attend public school? Why do they keep choosing those bass-turds across town?

    As the football season comes to an end with the championship game tomorrow, I can’t wait for next year’s campaign! Go Bruins!
