As covered here and elsewhere back in March, senior UCLA Football wideout Devin Lucien has transferred to Arizona State. While he would have undoubtedly played a role in our passing attack, we’re pretty comfortable with returning starters such as Jordan Payton, Devin Fuller, and Thomas Duarte. In addition, guys like Mossi Johnson and Eldridge Massington are primed to step up and shine in an offense sure to take advantage of freshman QB Josh Rosen‘s unique gifts.
That’s not even mentioning incoming freshmen WR Cordell Broadus and TE Chris Clark. So even with the loss of Lucien and the late decommit of speedy Ryan Newsome, Josh Rosen will have plenty of talented playmakers to throw to.

“A once-ever kind of talent, as this is the type of player that makes them rewrite eligibility rules.”
The UCLA football team has an opportunity to jump on a late breaking 2015 WR/TE recruiting opportunity, a once-in-a-generation talent (probably more like a once-ever kind of talent, as this is the type of player that makes them rewrite eligibility rules). You may have seen him online before, where he’s known as Waving Bear. But you might not have known he’s also a superb receiver. Here’s his highlight tape, featuring a stellar one-handed grab:
Jim Mora, Noel Mazzone, Eric Yarber, get on this! He’s a lifelong Bruin with eligibility, he’s on the West Coast, and while I’m no scout, I think he’d make a mean two-way player on defense. I’ll be looking out for the #Boom #8Clap tweet any day now.
