Los Angeles - UCLA baseball fall signees Charles Brewer, Gabe Cohen and Jeff Rapoport have been named to the 2006 Pre-Season All-America First Team by Collegiate Baseball, the publication announced Monday.

The trio will join five additional student-athletes who have signed National Letters of Intent to play baseball and attend school at UCLA this fall.

Brewer, a 6-foot-3 right-hander from Paradise Valley, Ariz., earned first-team honors as a pitcher out of Chaparral HS. Brewer is a three-year varsity player and posted an 8-0 record with a 0.80 ERA, three saves and 62 strikeouts in 45 innings during the 2005 season. He is also rated as a top-100 prospect by Baseball America, a top-50 prospect by rivals.com, and the No. 51 prospect by teamonebaseball.com.

Cohen, a 6-foot-1 native of Woodland Hills, Calif., was selected to the first team as an outfielder. Cohen batted .456 with six home runs and 30 RBI as a junior at Harvard-Westlake. He batted .582 with seven home runs and 36 RBI during the 2005 summer in the Connie Mack League, and will play his final season of high school ball at El Camino Real HS. Cohen is ranked as the No. 76 high school senior by teamonebaseball.com.

Rapoport, who hails from Westlake Village, Calif., also earned All-America honors as an outfielder. Rapoport batted .404 with seven home runs, 23 RBI and 12 stolen bases as a junior at Westlake HS. He is the No. 34 ranked high school prospect in the nation by Baseball America, and is ranked No. 25 among high school seniors by teamonebaseball.com.

The 2006 UCLA recruiting class will follow the 2005 Bruin class that was ranked No. 5 in the nation and features three 2006 top-50 freshmen collegiate baseball players in Brandon Crawford, Ryan Babineau and Tim Murphy.

The UCLA baseball team will open the 2006 season on Friday, Feb. 3 against Fresno State at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
