Rick Neuheisel Press Conference

Morrell Presley Interview

Rick Neuheisel Donor Event

Twenty-two outstanding high school seniors have signed letters-of-intent grants-in-aid to play football at UCLA, Bruin head coach Rick Neuheisel announced today. In addition, the class also includes two junior college transfers, one who signed in December and will attend school in the Spring. Morrell Presley, the nation's top prep tight end prospect who graduated early and enrolled at UCLA last month, is also included among the 22 high school signees.

The class is ranked No. 6 nationally by Scout.com and No. 14 by Rivals.com.

"I am thrilled with this recruiting class," said Neuheisel. "I think we addressed many of our needs, especially on the offensive line and speed at the wide receiver and secondary positions. We also continued to add depth to most areas of the team. Our staff worked extremely hard to identify, recruit and sign a stellar class and I believe these young men, who are quality individuals on and off the field, will help us continue to the task of returning UCLA to the elite in college football."

Ten of the new Bruins earned All-America honors from one publication or another. Wide receiver Randall Carroll was a first-team USA Today All-America selection. Offensive lineman Xavier Su'a-Filo was named to the Parade and EA Sports teams.

Three were selected to the PrepStar Dream Team (quarterback Richard Brehaut, Carroll and tight end Morrell Presley) and five more were named to the PrepStar All-America squad (linebacker Todd Golper, defensive end Keenan Graham, defensive back Marvin Pollard, defensive back Sheldon Price and Su'a-Filo). Thirteen were named All-Region - offensive lineman Nik Abele, fullback Jayson Allmond, linebacker Isaiah Bowens, offensive lineman Greg Capella, offensive lineman Stan Hasiak, running back Dalton Hilliard, linebacker Taniela Maka, wide receiver Ricky Marvray, defensive back Alex Mascarenas, defensive back Stan McKay, defensive back Brandon Sermons, defensive lineman Iuta Tepa and running back Damien Thigpen.

Seven were named SuperPrep All-Americans (Brehaut, Carroll, Golper, Graham, Hasiak, Presley and Su'a-Filo). Fifteen more were named All-Region - Abele, Allmond, Bowens, Capella, Hilliard, Maka, Marvray, Mascarenas, McKay, Pollard, Price, Sermons, Tepa and Thigpen.

Eleven new Bruins earned four stars from Rivals.com and 11 earned three stars. In Scout.com's prep ratings, the class includes one player with five stars, eight four stars and 11 three stars. Seventeen of the signees were ranked among the Top 100 players in the West by Scout.com while 13 were listed in the Rivals.com California 100.
