They pulled 4 commitments tonight from officials this weekend including two decommitments from other programs. If they end up getting Randall Carrol away from USC (which experts are saying is going to happen) then they will have a top 5 class this year. Neuheisel must have some recruiting magic.
UCLA is making some waves in recruiting
Well, part of the magic is UCLA. That's a stunningly beautiful school and an awesome place to be. Better by far in my opinion than USC.
Not hard to look better than USC. That place is in the middle of the ghetto.
Of course when you have the "advantages" that Slippery Pete has, it doesn't matter.
i didnt look deep but this years recruiting class doesnt look much different than years past. several 4 stars with a bunch of 3 stars to finish the class. randall carrol would be a big deal but past that im not overly impressed
Nice little article out here on the west coast about Nieuheisel being up to his old tricks. Something like he is hinting at things to potential recruits about other programs that are not true. He is poison
Neuheisel is as mo-f'in crooked as a mo-f'er can be.
Seriously, he's a disgusting fucking human being, and I cannot wait until UCLA gets the karmic buggering that's coming to them for hiring him. Look up his tenure at UW if you think I'm nuts.
There is no way the NCAA comes down on UCLA without checking in across town, and that's never going to happen.
When it comes to the campus, UCLA is a paradise compared to USC. I think the change in coaches at USC is causing some concern for some recruits plus the playing opportunities UCLA has over USC.
UCLA is undoubtedly way more beautiful. The school is gorgeous, there is a reason the Rose Bowl is so popular. But when I visited both schools campuses though, I saw more hot girls at USC...
The rose bowl in in Pasadena and UCLA is in Westwood. The stadium is not near the campus
That's the only problem with UCLA. Students have to drive (or take a campus bus) for 45-60 minutes to go to a home football game. That absolutely sucks.
they already ripped the #1 TE Morrell Pressley away from a USC commitment. Here's to a PAC 10 finally challenging USC (sans Oregon State)
In every other region, there are multiple teams that are strong: winning programs, tradition, etc...Consequently those teams battle for the top recruits in their region.
USC has had the luxury over the past ten years of having NO ONE in any proximity who can compete realistically for a plethora of west coast athletes. Success and location have subsequently contributed to major pulls from other regions.
If location were the only factor, these teams would have been recruiting evenly all along. (This argument also stands to refute the "oh my god its snowing" thread). If UCLA can put a reasonable team on the field, we SHOULD see some shake up in the PAC10. If tricky ricky is up to shenanigans, let pete carrol fight that out.
Either way, it won't affect our recruiting on the West Coast much. Kids who want to get away will do that - and the best ones will want to find the best programs...which we will be....soon.
