Lean Mean Dean Machine

Aundre Dean confirmed all the rumors this week by re-committing to UCLA on Thursday night. Dean will always have a special distinction on Bruin Roar because the very first post on this blog was about his original verbal commitment to former coach Dorrell. This comes on the heals of Dean be named to the Parade All American team.

In other recruiting news: Hammani Stevens is leaning toward UCLA again. Stevens had committed to UCLA back in the summer but he quickly backed away from that after one day. He would be a great addition to the team because offensive line is a position of considerable need. Another former commit, Uona Kaveinga is also rumored to be back in talks with UCLA. He changed his commitment to BYU recently, but the high profile linebacker is looking to maybe change that back to the blue and gold.

There is only a few more days until letters of intent (LOI) are signed. The coaching staff has been pushing hard to shore up this class while still seeking out other high profile players. It remains to be seen if any last minute surprises will happen on February 6th, but if anyone can pull a rabit out of his hat, it is Rick Neuheisel.

Can you provide a link to that cool recruiting pdf you had earlier in the season?

I don't have the PDF anymore but you can take a look at the image here . I need to update it with some of the recent commits/de-commits. I'm planning on putting together a final image tomorrow after all the LOI are signed.
