The UCLA football team resumes practice on Tuesday and there have already been some very interesting storylines. Here is a look at a few that could garner attention as the Bruins begin the second part of Spring Practice.

UCLA football is back and there is plenty to watch for as the Bruins continue to develop in the newly implemented system by head coach Chip Kelly.

If you need a refresher up to this point, check out the article above. When you are done, let us take a look at a few potentially meaningful storylines.

1. The QB completion just got… the same

Things just got turned up not at all. What we saw in the winter quarter portion of spring practice is exactly what we will see in the spring quarter portion.

The competition was suppose to get a Husky boost, but instead, Washington grad transfer K.J. Carta-Samuels opted for Colorado State after committing to the Bruins.

This is good and bad. It’s bad because the Bruins lose an experienced QB that has decent feet, a plus for Kelly’s system, though he is not naturally a dual-threat quarterback.

It is good because it thins out what could’ve been a five-player QB competition.

The Bruins will have dual-threat Dorian Thompson-Robinson coming in the fall, so the ante will be upped the month before the season starts, but for now, Devon Modster and Matt Lynch will continue to be the main QBs battling it out.

So far, Modster has had the conch as he has been the most consistent QB and ran with the 1s the majority of time. He hasn’t been perfect, but he has had a few highlight moments both running the ball and getting the passing game going.

Lynch has not lived up to expectations as he has been a bit inconsistent, but hopefully his first two weeks of spring practice boost his confidence for the last three.

Speaking of competition, in case you missed it, Arizona grad transfer Brandon Dawkins is considering Westwood as landing spot for his final year of eligibility.
