UCLA receiver Kenneth Walker only had three catches last season, but turned those into 127 yards and two touchdowns. Why didn’t he get more targets? While the 5-foot-10 wideout might be one of the fastest players on the roster, he couldn’t always hold on to the ball.
Walker said that’s been his main focus this offseason — working with a JUGS machine, and training himself to reel in “awkward” passes.
The redshirt junior also commented on the ongoing quarterback competition.
“Jerry (Neuheisel) has a lot of spin,” he said. “He’s more of a put it on the money kind of quarterback. Josh Rosen, he puts it on the money too. He has a hard ball. I just like the competition right now.”
