3* ATH (RB/CB) Patrick Jolly – Shortly after his official visit, Jolly gave his pledge to the Bruins. The former UCF commit has great speed and the skills needed to fit in a Kelly football team, though he projects to play on the defensive side of the ball. Go Joe Bruin Analysis


New Offers

2018 3* ATH Patrick Jolly, 6’1″, 177 lbs. (Offered on Jan. 16)

Jolly was offered, officially visited and committed to UCLA in less than a week. The Kelly era is already moving

Hurt decommitted form Utah after he received an offer from UCLA, a program he has been favoring for a while.

2018 3* CB Elisha Guidry, 6’0″, 177 lbs., (Offered Jan. 21)

UCLA offered a Bruin legacy, who could very well be leaning toward Westwood.

2019 3* ATH Joshua Calvert, 6’3″, 220 lbs. (Offered Jan. 16)

The Bruins offered brother of signed 2018 LB Bo Calvert. Like his brother, Joshua looks to play on the defensive side, specifically the outside linebacker position.
