Year in and year out, seemingly without fail, UCLA does an above average job when it comes to assembling many of the nation's premier players for its annual Elite Camp. Friday was no exception.
Josh Rosen from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco was one of many high-profile recruits to impress at the recent UCLA Elite Camp.
The turnout of talented individuals met expectations. Multiple high-profile prospects, in fact, were in attendance to not necessarily put on a show. Instead, they watched the action from the sidelines.
Well-known national commodities from the Class of 2014 such as Adoree' Jackson of Gardena (Calif.) Serra, Damien Mama of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco and teammates from Corona (Calf.) Centennial, Alabama commit Viane Talamaivao and USC commit Austin Maloata, were among the many sightings.
Enough about the recruits playing the role of innocent bystander. It's time to get down to business, provide a glimpse of the gridiron goings on shed some insight on the players who made a difference.
Josh Rosen, QB, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco: Believe the hype, the 6-foot-3 and 200-pound pro-style prospect from the Class of 2015 is the real deal. Perhaps that best explains why Rosen is the country's No. 2 player at his spot in the field in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and has more than 10 scholarships.
Jordan Lasley, WR, Gardena (Calif.) Serra. The 6-1 and 185-pound senior-to-be left a lasting impression, especially on the staff of the Bruins. When all was said and done, coach Jim Mora stepped up and offered him. We wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see Lasley accept. Sooner rather than later, that is.
Josh Malone, WR, Gallatin (TN) Station Camp: Signs pointed to the 6-2 and 190-pound prospect from the Class of 2014 being the marquee name at his particular position. Malone did not disappoint either. He is, after all, considered the nation's No. 6 player at his spot on the field in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Kishawn Holmes, APB, Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta: In terms of work ethic, few put in as much effort as the 5-8 and 186-pound senior-to-be. The past week or so alone, in addition to this weekend's visit to UCLA, Holmes attended camps for Oregon State and Colorado. His first offer could be right around the corner.
Aliz'e Jones, TE, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman: All eyes were on the 6-4 and 225-pound recruit from the Class of 2015 given the fact the Bruins recently put a scholarship on the table. Nothing has changed. Interest remains high for the country's No. 1 player at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Denzel Fisher, CB, Compton (Calif.) Centennial: Mere months ago, the 6-1 and 165-pound senior-to-be did not have an offer. That's not the case anymore, however. Fisher is rapidly approaching a double digit total and it appears as if Washington State and Utah are among the programs in the running for a commitment.
Jamal Scott, S, Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia: Another recruit who was underneath the radar in the not so distant past, the 6-2 and 200-pound Class of 2014 prospect has emerged as legit target of several schools. The scholarship count continues to rise for Scott and UCLA could be next to jump on the bandwagon.
Keisean Lucier-South, DL, Orange (Calif.) Lutheran: Pac-12 Conference programs aren't the only ones in contact with the 6-6 and 215-pound recruit from the Class of 2015. No. 5 in the nation at the weak-side spot in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Miami, Tennessee and Texas have also offered Lucier-South.
Rasheem Green, DL, Gardena (Calif.) Serra: UCLA and USC are in the midst of a battle for the versatile 6-5 and 270-pound junior-to-be, who is well-rounded enough to play tackle or out on the end. Florida is another team that's in the hunt for Green. Can't forget to mention the other 10-plus other schools on the list.
Kammy Delp, OG, Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch: There's plenty to like about him, most notably, the frame of the senior-to-be. At 6-4 and 305 pounds, Delp is a man among boys most times. As a result, he's developed into a hot commodity on the West Coast. Strangely enough, the Bruins haven't offered him.
