In a Twitter Q&A, former UCLA quarterback and current Green Bay Packer Brett Hundley made his pick for the national championship this season and, to no surprise, picked the Bruins.

Linebacker Myles Jack had a tough introduction to the heat and humidity in Florida where he made the rookie mistake of coming to practice wearing a long-sleeved shirt. He soon ditched the sleeves.

A few big recruits in the class of 2017 released their top college choices Saturday and UCLA was a popular school among them.
The big fish of the group is five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson (Episcopal, Bellaire, Texas). The 6-foot-4, 329-pound rising senior is the top recruit in the state of Texas, the top defensive tackle in the nation, and third overall recruit in the nation, according to 247Sports. Rivals has him as the No. 1 recruit in the nation.

As the long football-less summer continues, many magazines are rolling out their preview coverage to pass the time.
In Athlon Sports’ Pac-12 preview, the magazine is high on UCLA, projecting the Bruins to win the Pac-12 South with a 7-2 record.
In its full UCLA preview, Athlon Sports named a favorable Pac-12 schedule (i.e. UCLA won’t play Oregon nor Washington this season), 12 returning starters and Josh Rosen as reasons why the Bruins are the team to beat in the Pac-12 South.
Offensive lineman Conor McDermott and linebacker Jayon Brown will be UCLA’s player representatives at Pac-12 Media Days next month. UCLA is scheduled to take the podium at Hollywood & Highland on July 15 at 10:30 a.m. during the two-day event.
Quarterback Josh Rosen‘s absence at the event is surely intentional. In fact, Colorado’s Sefo Liufau is the only quarterback expected to be at the event. Meanwhile, there are four offensive linemen coming. Oregon State is bringing punter Nick Porebski.
Other notable players scheduled to come are USC’s Adoree Jackson, Oregon’s Royce Freeman, Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey.
Schedule for team media events is as followed: Continue reading
