UCLA head coach Jim Mora, Jr. has publicly expressed that every player on the roster will have an equal opportunity to be a starter in 2012, so which under-the-radar players have the best chance at getting ample playing time next season? There's five you should know.
Restoring the reputation of UCLA's legendary football program will be no easy task for first-year coach Mora, but a favorable recruiting class and several returning starters does lessen the incline of a steep uphill climb. After a dry spell coaching in the NFL, Mora tries his hand at the college game ironically at the same university his father served as a coach for back in the day.
Players are excited knowing that 2012 will present a lot of new opportunities and changes to a struggling program specifically on the depth chart, and Mora will take the allotted time needed to decide who will fill open holes next season. Because of how poorly the Bruins played last season, you could make a case that every player on this team is under-the-radar, but five specific players stand out when you think of potential breakout seasons.
