CECE JEFFERSON – defensive lineman, Florida.
Jefferson early on had UCLA high on his list and said repeatedly he would take an official visit to UCLA. Nowadays, he is being heavily recruited by Alabama, Auburn, and the Florida schools. In fact, Florida considers him a “must get” recruit because he lives only about 40 miles from the Gainesville campus. Doesn’t look like he will go far from home and will stay in the South. Missed most of his senior season with a broken collar bone. There may be other issues as well with his recruitment and UCLA.
FOTU LEIATO II, athlete, Washington.
Leiato has become an internet video viral star due to his football highlight tapes. Since UCLA offered Leiato, a lot of other schools have jumped in and offered too. While his highlight tape is amazing (over 450,000 views!), he plays against very suspect competition. Interestingly, the home school, Washington has reportedly NOT offered.

CARLOS STRICKLAND, receiver, Texas
A big receiver, Strickland is committed to Texas Tech but rumors persist in spite of that, that he may still visit UCLA officially. UCLA quarterback commit, Josh Rosen is apparently a big reason for Strickland’s interest in the Bruins.
STANLEY (SCRAPPY) NORMAN, athlete, California
A multi-talented athlete, Norman at one time was considered a heavy UCLA lean. Things cooled down for a while, but recent reports are that UCLA is very much back in the race.
RAY-RAY McCLOUD III, athlete, Florida
This fast, really fast, talented Florida athlete was expected to be an early enrollee at Clemson, but that is no longer the case. That has given several schools (most prominently UCLA and Florida) a chance to get him to flip.
We have been told Norton has recently shown interest in UCLA. We are trying to verify the interest level.
As with Norton, we have been told Davis has recently shown interest in UCLA. We are trying to verify the interest level.
One of the top players in the country, Cowart has been flirting with UCLA in recent days. While Cowart would be a huge addition to the Bruin class, it remains to be seen how interested he truly is. He is reportedly good friends with several other UCLA recruits which has helped maintain his interest in the Bruins.
MAEA TEUHEMA, Offensive lineman, Texas
The massive Teuhema has been a long time LSU commit, where his brother plays. Has recently indicated he would like to visit UCLA before signing day.
